  • Publication number: 20060029526
    Abstract: An exhaust gas purification filter for a diesel internal combustion engine. In this filter, catalyst layers are not formed at portions to which a sealant of the filter is stuck so that a substrate of the honeycomb structure is exposed, but formed at portions to which a substrate of the honeycomb structure is exposed. If the sealant is stuck to catalyst layer portions, because the catalyst layers are brittle and the surfaces thereof have asperities, the fixing strength of the sealant is reduced, so that the sealing portions becomes prone to falling-off under shocks or the like. By exposing the substrate of the honeycomb structure and sticking the sealant to the exposed portions, it is possible to enhance the fixing strength of the sealant and thereby to prevent the sealing portions from falling off.

  • Publication number: 20050188684
    Abstract: In an exhaust gas purifying apparatus provided with a lean NOx catalyst supporting a catalyst layer, which contains a NOx trapping component, on a honeycomb substrate formed so as not to cause an alkali attack, the invention prevents trapped NOx from being dissociated and exhausted during the time of a rich spike. A NOx reducing catalyst with the function of reducing NOx by a reductant in a rich or stoichiometric condition, e.g., a three-way catalyst, is disposed downstream of the lean NOx catalyst. In the case of increasing the amount of the NOx trapping component in the lean NOx catalyst to enhance a NOx trapping capability, even if a part of trapped NOx is dissociated during the time of the rich spike, the dissociated NOx can be reduced by the NOx reducing catalyst disposed on the downstream side.

  • Patent number: 5985177
    Abstract: This invention relates to an oil-in-water-in-oil (O/W/O) type multiple emulsion which contains an inner oil phase, a water phase, and an outer oil phase. The inner oil phase is first dispersed in water to form an oil-in-water (O/W) emulsion. Then, the O/W emulsion is further dispersed in the outer oil phase to form the O/W/O type multiple emulsion. The outer oil phase contains an organophilic clay mineral, which can effectively prevent the inter-mixing of the inner oil phase with the outer oil phase, thus, producing an O/W/O type multiple emulsion with excellent storage stability. Upon the using of an oil-soluble compound in the inner oil phase, this multiple emulsion system can prevent the oil-soluble compound from being oxidized.
