  • Publication number: 20200216578
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing a modified conjugated diene-based polymer, comprising a step of reacting an organometallic compound with a unit based on a modifying agent, in a conjugated diene-based polymer that has a unit based on a conjugated diene compound-containing monomer and a unit based on a modifying agent having a silicon atom, tin atom, germanium atom or phosphorus atom.

  • Patent number: 10554064
    Abstract: A battery controlling device includes: a voltage detecting unit configured to detect a closed-circuit voltage of a secondary battery; an open-circuit-voltage computing unit configured to compute an open-circuit voltage of the secondary battery; and an assembled-battery controlling unit configured to discriminate whether a computed value computed based on a voltage difference between the closed-circuit voltage and the open-circuit voltage of the secondary battery in a continuous predetermined period is exceeding a permissible value determined in advance or not. If the computed value is exceeding the permissible value determined in advance, the assembled-battery controlling unit outputs a signal that carries out charge/discharge restriction of the secondary battery.

  • Publication number: 20200031976
    Abstract: The method for producing a conjugated diene-based polymer of the invention comprises step 1 in which a polymerization initiator is added to a monomer including a conjugated diene compound in a hydrocarbon solvent to obtain a polymerization solution, and step 2 in which a polymerization initiator is further added to the polymerization solution either once or two or more times to obtain a polymer with an active end, wherein in step 1 and/or step 2, a modifying agent is added which has a functional group that is copolymerizable with the conjugated diene compound.

  • Publication number: 20190267741
    Abstract: A cap opening and closing structure is configured such that a surface of an inlet damper in a rotation axis direction and a side surface of a first supporting unit keep facing each other while the cap rotates. The surface is provided with a convex portion, and the side surface is provided with a concave portion, and the convex portion and the concave portion are engaged with each other in an open position. An inlet damper spring biases the convex portion so as to engage with the concave portion in the open position and to contact the facing side surface in a non-engagement state between the convex portion and the concave portion. Two inclined surfaces of the convex portion facing each other in a rotation direction contact respective ends of the concave portion in the open position.
