  • Patent number: 10308622
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method for effecting catalytic selective oxidation in liquid phase comprising a perfluorinated solvent and an olefinic compound with molecular oxygen to produce an epoxide. The method may provide enhanced selectivity to the epoxide of greater than 60%. The olefinic compound may be ethylene, propylene, butenes, 1-octene, butadiene, allyl chloride, allyl alcohol, styrene, and the like. The perfluorinated solvent may be perfluoro methyldecalin, perfluorodecalin, perfluoroperhydrophenanthrene, perfluoro (butyltetrahydrofuran), isomers thereof, or a combination thereof. In some embodiments, the method includes catalytically epoxidizing, in a liquid phase comprising a perfluorinated solvent, propylene with molecular oxygen to produce propylene oxide.

  • Patent number: 9785775
    Abstract: According to at least one embodiment, a computer-implemented method for managing malware for a computing device is described. In one embodiment, an attempt by a process to modify at least one file on the computing device may be identified. The identified process may be analyzed to estimate an age value associated with the identified process. The estimated age value of the identified process may be compared to an age value associated with the at least one file. The attempt to modify the at least one file may be prevented based at least in part on the comparison.

  • Patent number: 5758153
    Abstract: An object-oriented file system in an object-oriented operating system includes a file system entity class that is subclassed into a volume, directory and file subclass. These classes encapsulate standard file system properties such as name, creation date, and size, as well as standard operations such as create, open, close, and property accessors. Using object-oriented programming, the class properties and operations can easily be modified and extended. Also provided is a convenient and efficient means for searching through the entities, and collecting heterogeneous sets. Further, a category of notification classes is provided for notifying clients when an entity has changed. Still further, user authentication and protection domains are used to protect against unauthorized access. Finally, a means for working with foreign file systems running under different operating systems is provided.
