  • Patent number: 11505518
    Abstract: The present invention describes a process for the production of (?)-cannabidiol (CBD) from industrial hemp by means of an extraction followed by two alternative working processes: a process A which provides extraction with solvents first to an alkaline pH and then to acidic pH to isolate the carboxyl form of the CBD which is then subjected to decarboxylation and a process B which provides the elimination of waxes and pitches and then purification by chromatography. At the end of both alternative working processes the CBD is crystallized obtained in high purity crystalline form.

  • Patent number: 11485694
    Abstract: Processes of producing cresols from a phenols containing feed are described. The processes involve a combination of dealkylation and transalkylation processes. The dealkylation process converts the heavy alkylphenols in an alkylphenols stream to phenol and olefins. The olefins produced in the dealkylation process are separated out. The methylphenols, which are not converted in the dealkylation process, and phenol react in the transalkylation process to generate cresols.

  • Patent number: 11453643
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, in producing polythiols in a manner similar to a conventional method, a polythiol having improved storage stability may be produced in a convenient manner by adjusting reaction conditions so as to prevent thiourea from remaining within products. In particular, the equivalent weight of thiourea to be used in a reaction may be adjusted to a predetermined range, thereby reducing the amount of unreacted thiourea, and thiourea may be removed once more in a sub sequent process, thereby effectively removing remaining thiourea while achieving a high yield. The polythiol thus produced does not contain residual thiourea, and thus does not show discoloration or cloudiness caused by precipitates even under prolonged storage or high-temperature conditions.

  • Patent number: 11407694
    Abstract: In a process of decomposing byproducts of a phenol production process using a reactive distillation column in which a reactor and a distillation column are integrated, since acetophenone is mixed with tar recovered to a lower part of the reactive distillation column and transferred, viscosity of the tar may be lowered so that the tar may be transferred at room temperature, and since the reactive distillation column may be operated at 0.5 to 3 bar, an operating temperature of the reactive distillation column is low as compared with a method of separating acetophenone by pressurization with high pressure, significantly reducing an operation cost of a heater required for a reaction. Also, since acetophenone is separately recovered at a position of 25 to 90% of a total number of stages in the reactive distillation column, recovery of an active ingredient may be enhanced.

  • Patent number: 11407724
    Abstract: A process for the preparation of substantially pure diverse known and novel cannabinoids 1 and 2, which include ?9-tetrahydrocannabinol (7), tetrahydrocannabivarin (9), cannabidiol (11), cannabidivarin (12) and other naturally occurring tetracyclic and tricyclic cannabinoids and other synthetic tetracyclic and tricyclic analogues, via intermediates 3, 6, 4 and 5, using a cascade sequence of allylic rearrangement, aromatization and, for the tetracyclic cannabinoids, further highly stereoselective and regioselective cyclization. These synthesized cannabinoids can more easily be obtained at high purity levels than cannabinoids isolated or synthesized via known methods. The cannabinoids 2, including ?9-tetrahydrocannabinol (7), tetrahydrocannabivarin (9), are obtained containing very low levels of isomeric cannabinoids such as the undesirable ?8-tetrahydrocannabinol.

  • Patent number: 11401227
    Abstract: A process produces a mono vinyl ether, R—O—CH?CH2. R represents an organic group with at least three carbon atoms. The process involves reacting a mono hydroxy compound. R—OH, with acetylene in presence of a catalyst to get a product mixture containing the mono vinyl ether, unconverted mono hydroxy compound, and the catalyst. To the product mixture, an ester is added that contains at least one ester group, X—O2C—. X is a hydrocarbon group containing less carbon atoms than R. The remaining mono hydroxy compound R—OH is reacted with the ester in the presence of the catalyst to get a transesterification product containing at least one ester group, R—O2C—, and an alcohol, X—OH. The mono vinyl ether is isolated from the product mixture obtained after the ester addition, optionally followed by purification of the mono vinyl ether by distillation.
