  • Patent number: 8884044
    Abstract: The invention relates to ruthenium complexes which have a chiral diphosphorus donor ligand and in which the ruthenium has the oxidation state (+11) and the chiral diphosphorus donor ligand has bidentate P—P coordination to the ruthenium. The ruthenium complexes are present in two forms (cationic type A and uncharged type B), are cyclic and have a four- to six-membered ring incorporating the diphosphorus donor ligand. The chiral diphosphorus donor ligands are selected from the group consisting of diphosphines, diphospholanes, diphosphites, diphosphonites and diazaphospholanes. Furthermore, processes for preparing the ruthenium complexes of types A and B, which are based on ligand exchange reactions, are described. The Ru complexes are used as catalysts for homogeneous asymmetric catalysis for preparing organic compounds.

  • Patent number: 7474807
    Abstract: The present invention includes systems, methods, and computer readable media for locating, sorting, and modifying images for future use. A conversion engine submits search requests to an image search engine and accepts the received results. The conversion engine arranges the search results according to selected visual characteristics of the image. Editing tools can then convert the results of the image search into vector based images which can be easily manipulated and enable users to modify the re-ranked images for future use.

  • Publication number: 20080010585
    Abstract: A digital document and authoring tool for generating a digital document comprising a multi-channel interface is provided that achieves improved user interaction. The digital document includes a plurality of content channels providing primary content continuously in a looping manner and at least one supplementary channel on a single page. The supplementary channel is configured to provide supplementary content upon the occurrence of an event during playback of the document. Channel content may include video, text, images, 3D content, web page content, audio and any other suitable content. In addition to media content, a channel may contain interactive regions in the form of hot spots, and interactive mapping regions, and other interactive features. The codument can utilize a stage layout having at least one channel to present media and a collection of properties, the collection of properties forming a program.

  • Publication number: 20050071736
    Abstract: A media collection and management tool for collecting, managing, and configuring media and media related properties. The tool configures media along with related media properties as a program, wherein a program is a collection of properties. Configurable media may include video, text, images, 3D content, web page content and audio. In addition to media content, a program may be configured to include interactive regions in the form of hot spots, interactive mapping regions, and other interactive features. The media collection and management tool utilizes intuitive interfaces to configure programs. The media and programs can be exported to other media components, such as a digital document authoring tool.
