  • Patent number: 9350131
    Abstract: A contact pin is disclosed with first and second end portions and a bending portion located therebetween, wherein the cross section of at least one end portion has a preferred bending direction (V1) and at least one bending resistance direction (R1) and wherein the moment of inertia of the cross section of the at least one end portion is smaller in the preferred bending direction than in the bending resistance direction. If such contact pins are bent perpendicular to their longitudinal extension (Z) by a bending force in one direction (F), then the direction of the actual bending (X) deviates from the direction of the bending force. In order to eliminate this deviation, the difference between the moments of inertia in the preferred bending direction and in the bending resistance direction in the cross section of the bending portion is smaller than in the at least one end portion.

  • Publication number: 20150044916
    Abstract: The invention relates to a contact pin with a first and a second end portion and a bending portion located between the end portions, wherein the cross section of at least one end portion has a preferred bending direction (V1) and at least one bending resistance direction (R1) and wherein the moment of inertia of the cross section of the at least one end portion is smaller in the preferred bending direction (V1) than in the bending resistance direction (R1). If such contact pins are bent perpendicular to their longitudinal extension (Z) by a bending force in one direction (F), then the direction of the actual bending (X) deviates from the direction of the bending force (F). In order to eliminate or reduce this deviation it is provided according to the invention that the difference between the moments of inertia in the preferred bending direction (V1) and in the bending resistance direction (R1) in the cross section of the bending portion is smaller than in the at least one end portion.

  • Patent number: 8791276
    Abstract: Process for the preparation of 2-substituted 4-hydroxy-4-methyltetrahydropyrans of the formula (I) where the radical R1 is a straight-chain or branched alkyl or alkenyl radical having 1 to 12 carbon atoms, an optionally alkyl-substituted cycloalkyl radical having in total 3 to 12 carbon atoms or an optionally alkyl- and/or alkoxy-substituted aryl radical having in total 6 to 12 carbon atoms, comprising the reaction of 3-methylbut-3-en-1-ol of the formula (II) with an aldehyde of the formula (III) R1—CHO??(III), where the radical R1 has the same meaning as in formula (I) and where the reaction is carried out in the presence of water and in the presence of a strongly acidic cation exchanger, and then the isolation and/or the distillative separation is carried out in a dividing wall column or in an interconnection of (at least) two distillation columns in the form of a thermal coupling and one or more side take-off points at an absolute operating pressure of up to 500 mbar.

  • Patent number: 8692025
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for the preparation of m- or p-substituted phenylalkanols of the formula (I) in which R1 is bonded to the phenyl ring in the m- or p-position and is C1-C5-alkyl, and R2, R3, R4 and R5, independently of one another, are hydrogen or methyl, wherein an unsubstituted phenylalkanol of the formula (II) in which R2, R3, R4 and R5 have the meanings given under formula (I) is alkylated together with a C1-C5-alkyl halide of the formula (III) R1-Hal??(III), in which R1 has the meaning given under formula (I) and Hal is halogen, in the presence of a Friedel-Crafts catalyst to give an m- or p-alkyl-substituted phenylalkanol of the formula (I), then the reaction mixture is worked-up and the desired m- or p-alkyl-substituted phenylalkanol of the formula (I) is separated off, the other formed by-products are returned to the reaction mixture and these are isomerized in the presence of a Friedel-Crafts catalyst to give the desired m- or p-alkyl-substituted phenylalkanol.

  • Patent number: 8686193
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for the preparation of m-substituted phenylalkanols of the formula (I) in which R1 is C1-C5-alkyl and R2, R3, R4 and R5, independently of one another, are hydrogen or methyl, wherein a p-substituted phenylalkanol of the formula (II) in which R1, R2, R3, R4 and R5 having the meanings given under formula (I), is isomerized in the presence of a Friedel-Crafts catalyst to give an m-substituted phenylalkanol of the formula (I). From the m-substituted phenylalkanols of the formula (I) it is possible to form, by oxidation or dehydrogenation, as products of value, the corresponding aldehydes, which are known as fragrances and aroma chemicals.
