  • Publication number: 20170073615
    Abstract: The invention relates to the use of an alkaline aqueous composition comprising a) an amine oxide b) a nonionic surfactant, not being an amine oxide, and c) a cationic hydrotrope having the formula (I) where R=C6-C22 hydrocarbyl, R1 and R2 are independently C1-C4 alkyl, n is at least 12, and at most 25, and X? is an anion, e.g. halide or methylsulphate; for removal of dirt from hard surfaces. In particular the composition significantly reduces the amount of traffic film remaining on the surface after brushless vehicle cleaning as compared to presently applied formulation concepts. Further, the invention relates to certain such compositions and intermediates to make these.

  • Publication number: 20160215237
    Abstract: The present invention provides for a fabric softener composition comprising a quaternary ammonium compound, a compound selected from alkoxylated quaternary ammonium compounds, nonionic surfactants, alkylaryl sulfonates, and alkylsulfonate compounds. The composition is in liquid state, and remains clear and stable at or below room temperature. When applied to fabric products, the composition of the present invention exhibits comparable or even better softening performance as compared with those emulsion or paste versions of fabric softener that are commonly used in the art. The present invention also provides for the use of the composition of the present invention to soften fabrics.

  • Patent number: 9381450
    Abstract: The present invention relates to defoaming compositions comprising compounds having the formula C5H11CH(CH2CH2CH3)CH2O(CH2CH(X)O)nH (I) where X?(CH2)aCH3 where a=0 or 1 and where n=0.5-5; and one or more hydrotropes selected from the group consisting of branched or linear C4-C10 alkyl glycosides and optionally one or more anionic hydrotrope selected from the group consisting of fatty acid soaps where the acyl group contains 10-22 carbon atoms, and which could be saturated or unsaturated, linear or branched; or a sulfonate chosen from the group cumene sulfonate and xylene sulfonate, and the use of such compositions as defoaming and/or antifoaming agents. The invention also pertains to a composition comprising a) a compound C5H11CH(CH2CH2CH3)CH2O(CH2CH(X)O)nH (I) where X?(CH2)aCH3 where a=0 or 1 and n=0.

  • Patent number: 8709169
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the use of an alkyl di(lower alkyl)mono(polyoxyethylene) quaternary ammonium compound as a hydrotrope in 5 aqueous solutions for a nonionic surfactant, preferably a C8-C18-alcohol alkoxylate containing 1-20 ethyleneoxy units and 0-5 propyleneoxy units. It also relates to a composition comprising said quaternary ammonium compound and said nonionic surfactant. The cationic surfactant has the formula 10 R2+R(1)N(CH2CH2O)n H X R1 wherein R?C6-C22 alkyl; R1 and R2 are independently a C1-C4 alkyl group; n=8-25; and X? is an anion. The compositions may be used for the cleaning of hard surfaces, for example for vehicle cleaning or machine dishwashing.

  • Patent number: 7608576
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an aqueous alkaline composition with good wetting ability, which composition is dilutable with water without exhibiting any phase separation. The composition contains a surface active nonionic alkylene oxide adduct of an alkyl-branched alcohol, with a good wetting ability, a hexyl glycoside and/or an octyliminodipropionate and a further surface active nonionic alkylene oxide adduct having an HLB-value according to Davies of at least 6.4.
