  • Publication number: 20210005410
    Abstract: In a method and apparatus, an electrical load is disposed across an electric power source. First and second electrical components are disposed between first and second terminals, respectively, and the load and power source. An open circuit is defined between the first and second terminals in absence of a test meter. The first electrical component is configured so that the first component passes at most a low level electric current to the first terminal upon a short circuit condition. The second electrical component is configured so that the second component passes at most a low level electric current to the second terminal upon a short circuit condition.

  • Patent number: 9828394
    Abstract: A method of making a diakyl-, diaryl-, or alkylaryl-dihalosilane in a Grignard coupling reaction with a high degree of selectivity is provided. More specifically, a Grignard reagent comprising an alkyl- or aryl-magnesium halide is allowed to react with an alkyl- or aryl-trihalosilane precursor or reagent to produce a product mixture of R2SiX2 and R3SiX, wherein each R is independently selected to be an alkyl or aryl group and X is a halogen group, such that the R2SiX2 product is formed with a high degree of selectivity. High selectivity is defined as the mass ratio of R2SiX2 product to the R3SiX product that is formed in the reaction being greater than 7:1.
