  • Publication number: 20200086269
    Abstract: An air purifying system is a system for purifying air in a room, and the air purifying system includes: a carbon dioxide removing device including a first space and a second space that are divided from each other by a separation membrane that selectively allows carbon dioxide to permeate therethrough; a feed passage that leads the air in the room to the first space; a return passage that leads purified air from which carbon dioxide has been removed from the first space to the room; a supply passage that supplies sweep gas to the second space, the sweep gas having a carbon dioxide partial pressure that is lower than a carbon dioxide partial pressure in the air in the room; and a discharge passage that discharges the sweep gas from the second space after the sweep gas is mixed with the carbon dioxide that has permeated through the separation membrane.

  • Patent number: 10155739
    Abstract: Halogenated S-(perfluoroalkyl)dibenzothiophenium salt represented by the following general formula (I): This compound is a new, reactive, and industrially useful reagent for perfluoroalkylating organic compounds. The reagent can be prepared by a one-pot process or a two-step reaction process from a halogenated biphenyl and easily isolated by a filtration method. In addition, the halogenated biphenyl can be recovered by desulfurization from a halogenated dibenzothiophene obtained as a side-product by the usage of the reagent.
