  • Patent number: 5734068
    Abstract: The invention relates to a silver catalyst for the partial oxidation of ethylene with molecular oxygen in the gas phase to form ethylene oxide and a process for preparing ethylene oxide using this catalyst. The catalyst is superior to comparable catalysts of the prior art through an increased selectivity (at high activity) and/or a more favorable ageing behavior. The process for preparing ethylene oxide is distinguished by improved economics.

  • Patent number: 4237223
    Abstract: A method of determining the presence of microorganisms on a surface comprisescontacting the surface to be tested for the presence of microorganisms with an adhesive side of a sheet consisting essentially of a porous, flexible support material having an adhesive surface on at least one side such that when contacted with a microorganism-containing surface, the microorganisms will be adhered thereto; removing the sheet from this surface; placing the sheet on a sterile culture medium for microorganisms, the side placed on the medium being that opposite the side which was in contact with the test surface; incubating the sheet; and analyzing the incubated sheet for the presence of microorganisms.A sheet for use in the method comprises a porous, flexible support material having an adhesive surface on at least one side and which is sterile throughout, said adhesive surface being such that when contacted with a microorganism-containing surface, the microorganisms will be adhered thereto.
