  • Patent number: 10781193
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a reaction of a chlorine-containing compound using a flow reactor which is less restricted by a solvent to be used. In the present disclosure, an organic compound is produced by supplying a reaction substrate having at least one functional group which can react with chlorine and is selected from the group consisting of hydroxy group, a thiol group, an amino group, a carboxyl group, a thiocarboxyl group, and an acid amide group, and a chlorine-containing compound to a flow reactor together with a trialkyl amine having 9 to 40 carbon atoms and an organic solvent, and allowing the reaction substrate and the chlorine-containing compound to react with each other.

  • Publication number: 20190177262
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for safely producing a large amount of chloroformate compound with high yield. The chloroformate compound can be produced by mixing and reacting a solution of triphosgene, an amine and an alcohol compound in a flow reactor. The chloroformate compound can also be produced by mixing and reacting a solution of triphosgene with a solution comprising an amine and an alcohol compound in a flow reactor. The amine is preferably tributylamine, and preferably used in an amount of 0.8 to 3 equivalents relative to an amount of the alcohol compound.

  • Patent number: 7361378
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a radiation image conversion panel which comprises the steps of: effecting aggregate reduction for a calcined product of a stimulable phosphor by dispersion in a dispersion medium, to thereby obtain a slurry; removing grains therefrom that are of at least a predetermined size by wet classification; thereafter adding a binder, with the dispersion medium being substituted by a solvent when necessary, to thereby prepare a phosphor layer coating material; and subsequently applying the coating material onto a surface of a support and drying.

  • Patent number: 6339225
    Abstract: A method for erasing a radiation image remaining in a stimulable phosphor sheet in which a radiation image was recorded and then read by applying stimulating rays onto the phosphor sheet and collecting stimulated emission from the phosphor sheet is performed by applying onto the stimulable phosphor sheet an erasing light containing essentially no light of a wavelength of shorter than 370 nm.

  • Patent number: 6290873
    Abstract: There is provided a method for preparing a highly accelerated-phosphorescent phosphor whose erasability and after-image characteristic are both improved. Phosphor materials are mixed together to obtain a mixture, and the mixture of phosphor materials is fired in a furnace having a firing region whose capacity is 2 to 500 L per kilogram of the mixture, at a temperature of 550 to 1000° C. while introducing 1 to 200 ml of oxygen in volume at room temperature per liter capacity of the firing region in the furnace, to thereby prepare a phosphor represented by the following compositional formula (I): (Ba1−a, MIIa)FX.bMI.cMIII.dA:xLn  (I) wherein, MIIa is alkaline earth metal such as Sr, Ca or Mg; MI is alkali metal such as Li, Na or K; MIII is Al, Ga or In; X is Cl, Br or I; Ln is rare earth element such as Ce, Eu or the like; A is a metallic oxide such as Al2O3; and a, b, c, d and x are numerical values within the ranges of 0≦a≦0.

  • Patent number: 6259113
    Abstract: A process for erasing a radiation image remaining in a stimulable phosphor sheet in which a radiation image was recorded and then read by applying stimulating rays and collecting stimulated emission produced from the phosphor sheet is performed by applying erasing light onto the phosphor sheet under the condition that both front and back surfaces of the phosphor sheet are irradiated with the erasing light so that the ratio of amount of erasing light applied onto the front surface to that applied onto the back surface would be in the range of 51/49 to 75/25.
