  • Publication number: 20150275146
    Abstract: The aim of the invention is to improve the primary detergency of detergents and cleaning agents, in particular with respect to soils containing oil and/or grease. This is substantially achieved by the incorporation of polymers which can be obtained by the copolymerization of N-vinylpyrrolidone with ethylenically unsaturated compounds that have an amide function, said polymers having an aggregation parameter Xag, where Xag>1 mN/m.

  • Publication number: 20150275141
    Abstract: It is possible to prevent or at least mitigate discoloration of plastics tableware during machine dishwashing by using amphiphilic block copolymers of -An-Bm- type, where A represents the hydrophilic monomer unit of the hydrophilic block An and B represents the hydrophobic monomer unit of the hydrophobic block Bm and a diene serves as monomer for the hydrophobic monomer unit B.

  • Publication number: 20120157369
    Abstract: The present invention comprises polymers having optionally substituted aromatic residues in the polymer backbone and/or side chains, useful for the removal and/or dispersion of hydrophilic soils from textiles. The present invention also comprises a method for the removal of hydrophilic soils from textiles comprising the step of contacting the soil with a polymer that comprises optionally substituted aromatic residues in the backbone and/or side chains. The present inventive polymers and method are particularly useful in the context of washing or pretreatment agents that effectively remove red wine, fruit, vegetable, food product, or beverage stains from textiles.
