  • Patent number: 4929694
    Abstract: There are provided novel copolymers of a p-mercaptostyrene ester, e.g., the acetate, with at least one comonomer selected from the group consisting of styrene, N-methylmaleimide, maleic anhydride and p-acetoxystyrene. These copolymers may be hydrolyzed to produce corresponding copolymers of p-mercaptostyrene with at least one comonomer selected from the group consisting of styrene, N-methylmaleimide, maleic acid and p-vinylphenol. The copolymers have application as heavy metal sequestering agents in various forms and structures.

  • Patent number: 4927956
    Abstract: 3-substituted-4-hydroxy- and 4-acetoxystyrene compounds, especially 3,5-di(methyl, bromo or chloro)-4-acetoxystyrene as well as a process for its preparation. 2,6-dimethylphenol is acylated with acetic anhydride and HF catalyzed to produce 3,5-dimethyl-4-hydroxy-acetophenone. After subsequent esterification with acetic anhydride and catalyzed hydrogenation to form 1-(3',5'-dimethyl-4'-acetoxyphenyl)ethanol, this intermediate is then dehydrated with an acid and a polymerization inhibitor to produce 3,5-dimethyl-4-acetoxystyrene.

  • Patent number: 4912087
    Abstract: This invention is directed to a method of preparing a superconducting metal oxide film on silicon and silicon dioxide substrates. More particularly, the method comprises depositing by physical vapor deposition a superconducting metal oxide precursor directly on the substrate and then subjecting it to rapid thermal annealing in an oxygen atmosphere.

  • Patent number: 4794205
    Abstract: A method is provided for preparing alkenylthiophenols, e.g., para-vinylthiophenol, or their esters, e.g., para-vinylthiophenol acetate by reacting a hydroxy aromatic ketone, e.g., 4-hydroxyacetophenone (4-HAP) with an N,N-di(organo)thiocarbamoyl halide, e.g., N,N-dimethylthiocarbamoyl chloride (DMTC) to form an O-(acylaryl) N,N-di(organo)thiocarbamate, e.g., O-(4'-acetophenyl) N,N-dimethylthiocarbamate, and pyrolytically rearranging the latter compound to form an S-(acylaryl) N,N-di(organo)thiocarbamate, e.g., S-(4-4- -acetophenyl) N,N-dimethylthiocarbamate. In one procedure, the latter compound is directly reduced to form an S-(1-hydroxyalkylaryl) N,N-di(organo) thiocarbamate, e.g., S-[4'-(1-hydroxyethyl)phenyl] N,N-dimethylthiocarbamate, which is either hydrolyzed to form a (1-hydroxyalkyl) thiophenol, e.g., 4'-(1-hydroxyethyl) thiophenol, which optionally after acylation of its thiol group, is dehydrated to form the alkenylthiophenol wherein the double bond is at the ring-bonded carbon atom, e.g.
