  • Patent number: 8668918
    Abstract: Bisurea gelling agents that impart a number of unexpected benefits within various gelled formulations and exhibit great versatility in terms of gelling capabilities for many types of solvents are provided. Such gelling agents should include pendant groups, such as sterically hindering alkyl groups attached to polyoxyalkylenated moieties that allow the gelling agent to be compatible with the target liquid system at elevated temperatures, while controlling and/or limiting the network formation and strength during the cooling cycle. Alternatively, novel gelling agents having two urea groups but that are asymmetrical in configuration have been produced in order to provide the same control in temperature, compatibility, and efficiency. Final gelled formulations, such as antiperspirant sticks and other like consumer items, are provided as well within this invention.

  • Patent number: 6342618
    Abstract: Triphenylmethane dyes or colorants with sterically hindered fugitive amine counter ions are provided as durable, storage-stable, and excellent coloring and shading printing inks. Ink compositions are disclosed which provide improvements in long-term storage capabilities, particularly within alkaline environments, extremely effective colorations of cellulose-based substrates, and lower cost over those of the prior art. The preferred dyes or colorants are triphenylmethane polymeric colorants which are capped with cyclic anhydride and the preferred sterically hindered amine counter ions are those based on low molecular weight fugitive tertiary amines, such as N,N-dimethylethanolamine. Compositions comprising water soluble or emulsion resins as diluents for lowered viscosity and lower overall cost are also contemplated. Furthermore, compositions comprising the inventive colorant and other pigments, dyes, surfactants, preservatives, and other colorants are contemplated.

  • Patent number: 6040482
    Abstract: This invention relates to very specific oxyalkylene-substituted aminophenol compounds as intermediates for the production of poly(oxyalkylene)-substituted xanthene (or other type) colorants. Such an inventive intermediate compound is produced in a single step by reacting an oxyalkylene oxide having from 3 to 12 carbon atoms (branched or unbranched), glycidol, or a glycidyl directly with aminophenol without the use of a catalyst and at a relatively low temperature. Propylene oxide and m-aminophenol are the preferred reactants. The propylene oxide selectively reacts with the amine group on the m-aminophenol without propoxylating the phenolic hydroxyl group. Such a specific method thus does not require extra time- and cost-consuming steps of protecting the phenolic hydroxyl group from attack. After production, this intermediate may be reacted with suitable compounds to ultimately form any number of different colorants, including xanthenes, oxazines, coumarins, and the like.
