  • Publication number: 20080221332
    Abstract: The present invention relates water-soluble hindered amine compounds of the general formula (I): wherein G1 and G2 are independently alkyl of 1 to 4 carbon atoms or are together pentamethylene; Z1 and Z2 are each methyl, or Z1 and Z2 together form an unsubstituted linking moiety or a linking moiety substituted by one or more groups selected from an ester, ether, hydroxy, oxo, cyanohydrin, amide, amino, carboxy or an urethane group; E is alkoxy of 1 to 18 carbon atoms, cycloalkoxy of 5 to 12 carbon atoms or aralkoxy of 7 to 15 carbon atoms, or E is —O-T-(OH)b; T is a straight or branched chain alkylene of 1 to 18 carbon atoms, cycloalkylene of 5 to 18 carbon atoms, cycloalkenylene of 5 to 18 carbon atoms, a straight or branched chain alkylene of 1 to 4 carbon atoms substituted by phenyl or by phenyl substituted by one or two alkyl groups of 1 to 4 carbon atoms; b is 1, 2 or 3 with the proviso that b cannot exceed the number of carbon atoms in T, and when b is 2 or 3, each hydroxyl group is attached to a di

  • Patent number: 7390904
    Abstract: Sterically hindered N-hydrocarbyloxyamines are prepared from hindered amine N-oxyl compounds by a process which uses hydrogen peroxide or a hydrogen peroxide equivalent, a catalytic amount of a peroxide decomposing transition metal salt, metal oxide, or metal-ligand complex, a hydrocarbon solvent containing no activated hydrogen atoms, and a relatively inert cosolvent. These compounds are useful as thermal and light stabilizers for a variety of organic substrates.

  • Publication number: 20070256352
    Abstract: The instant invention pertains to white, dyed, dipped, unscented and/or scented candle wax which is effectively stabilized against discoloration and fading by the incorporation therein of a substituted hexahydro-1,4-diazepin-5-ones in combination with a UV absorber and/or an antioxidant. Additionally, some novel substituted hexahydro-1,4-diazepin-5-one compounds are described.

  • Patent number: 6872832
    Abstract: Hindered amines substituted on the N-atom with an —O-E-OH moiety are particularly effective in stabilizing polyolefin and automotive coating compositions against the deleterious effects of oxidative, thermal and actinic radiation where the presence of the OH group on the compounds adds important properties not attainable by the use of normal —O-E moieties.

  • Patent number: 6515051
    Abstract: Benzotriazole UV absorbers which are substituted at the 5-position of the benzo ring by an electron withdrawing group exhibit enhanced durability and very low loss rates when incorporated into automotive coatings. This is particularly the case when the 3-position of the phenyl ring is also substituted by phenyl or phenylalkyl such as &agr;-cumyl. Compounds where the 5-position of the benzo ring are substituted by perfluoroalkyl such as trifluoromethyl are particularly of interest for both their enhanced durability and for their excellent solubility and excellent color properties in some thermoplastic compositions when the phenyl ring is substituted at the 3-position by hydrogen or tert-alkyl.
