  • Publication number: 20220056058
    Abstract: The attachment and proliferation of antibiotic resistant, biofilm-forming bacteria to oft-handled material surfaces has emerged as a growing concern, particularly in the biomedical, healthcare and food packaging industries. UV-curable phosphoniums bearing benzophenone anchors have been synthesized with a variety of alkyl, aryl, and fluoroalkyl functional groups at phosphorus to probe their efficacy as thermally stable antimicrobial additives in plastics or as surface coatings. In an embodiment, a phosphonium compound having the following formula has been synthesized: in which R is a phosphine group substituted with alkyl, aryl, substituted alkyl, substituted aryl, heteroalkyl or any combination thereof. These materials maintained the ability to kill biofilm-forming bacteria even after being subject to abrasion processes, demonstrating the potential to serve as long-term antimicrobial materials.

  • Patent number: 7705069
    Abstract: An ink jet ink composition comprised an anti-curl agent and ink jet printing processing using such ink jet ink composition. The ink jet ink composition includes a hyperbranched polymer. The hyperbranched polymer acts as an anti-curl agent to control curl during a printing process. The anti-curl agent, i.e., the hyperbranched polymer, may be present in the ink amounts less than conventional anti-curl agents and still effectively control curl without detrimentally effecting intercolor bleed control water fastness or drying. Additionally, the ink composition do not exhibit increases in viscosity, and problems associated therewith, that occur in ink composition using conventional anti-curl agents.

  • Patent number: 7410750
    Abstract: A multicolored display and process for forming such a display is provided. The multicolored display includes marking particles comprising a mixture of photochromic materials. The photochromic materials each exhibit a first “invisible” photochromic state at a first absorption spectrum and at least a second “visible” photochromic state at a second absorption spectrum. The second “visible” photochromic state of each photochromic material produces a different color relative to the other photochromic materials. In embodiments, the marking particles include a mixture of a spiropyran material and a dithienylethene material.
