  • Publication number: 20240228449
    Abstract: Disclosed in the present invention is a method for preparing a tertiary amine by using a secondary amine as a raw material. The method comprises a step of reacting a secondary amine that serves as a raw material with an acid to generate a proton-type ionic liquid, and a step of reacting the proton-type ionic liquid with an aldehyde under the action of a reducing agent to generate a tertiary amine. The secondary amine is an aliphatic secondary amine and/or an aromatic secondary amine and/or a cyclic secondary amine; the acid is selected from one of or a combination of several of an organic carboxylic acid and an inorganic acid; the aldehyde is a monoaldehyde, a dialdehyde or an aldehyde polymer; and the reducing agent is selected from one of or a combination of several of formic acid, sodium formate, oxalic acid, sodium oxalate and triphenylsilane.

  • Publication number: 20170130935
    Abstract: A conical frustum shaped optical lens is made of transparent material, the conical frustum shaped optical lens having a long diameter at a first end and a short diameter at a second end and the conical frustum shaped optical lens defined by multiple rotational surfaces and a flat fifth surface. The conical frustum shaped optical lens is configured to create folded light paths within the conical frustum shaped optical lens such that a majority of light from a light source is reflected twice within the conical frustum shaped optical lens before being output. An MR16 form factor LED spotlight including the conical frustum shaped optical lens can achieve a reduced light beam angle and a higher central luminous intensity.

  • Publication number: 20170091918
    Abstract: A printed circuit board checking system includes a movement mechanism, an image capturing unit, an image analyzing unit, a storage unit and a determining unit. The image capturing unit moves in response to motion of the movement mechanism, relative to a printed circuit board moves in X axis, Y axis and Z axis and continuously captures a number of images of the printed circuit board. The image analyzing unit analyzes the number of images to obtain an arrangement information of elements of the printed circuit board. The storage unit stores a standard arrangement information of elements of the printed circuit board. The determining unit determines which element does not meet requirement according to the analyzed arrangement information of the element of the printed circuit board and the standard arrangement information of the element of the printed circuit board.
