Abstract: An integrated service network ("ISDN") is structured to connect subscriber lines through a packet switching system to incoming or outgoing packet switching calls without passing them through a circuit switching system. This effectively uses the speech path of the circuit switching section instead of using it for packet switching calls. At the same time, the invention minimizes the influence of the introduction of the ISDN upon the software of the circuit switching section. The ISDN digital switching network applies to circuit switching calls which are switched at a local switch and to packet switching calls which are to be switched at a toll switch.
Abstract: Compounds having a cyclopentadiene skeleton and at least one sulfonic acid group are novel, and produced by subjecting cyclopentadiene, dicyclopentadiene and/or hydroxydicyclopentadiene to sulfonation, and subjecting the same, before or after the sulfonation, to reaction with alkylbenzene, polymerization and/or condensation through an aldehyde. The aforesaid compounds are useful as dispersants for cement.By incorporating a polymer emulsion into a slurry composition comprising a powder and a dispersant having at least one sulfonic acid group the proportion of said polymer emulsion being 0.05 to 50 parts by weight per 100 parts by weight of said dispersant, the dispersing effect of said dispersant is improved, the fluidizing effect of the dispersant is further enhanced, the slump loss is made very small, and the workability becomes good.

Abstract: 3,4-Diacetoxybutene-1 can be easily isomerized into 1,4-diacetoxybutene-2 by contacting it with a cation exchange resin. This method is capable of providing an excellent reaction result and is free of the problem of corrosion of apparatus as well as the problem of formation of by-products. When acetic acid is present in said isomerization operation, the reaction rate is increased. Further, combination of this isomerization method with separation of 1,4-diacetoxybutene-2 from 3,4-diacetoxybutene-1 by distillation enables production of high-purity 1,4-diacetoxybutene-2 at a high efficiency.
Abstract: Polyamide acid obtained by reacting 2,3,5-tricarboxycyclopentane-acetic acid and a diamine in a solvent has a high stability in the form of a solution, has a high workability and is excellent in storage stability. Polyimide obtained by heating said polyamide acid is excellent in heat resistance, mechanical properties, electrical properties and chemical resistance.

Abstract: In a process for preparing diacetoxybutene by subjecting butadiene, acetic acid and oxygen to reaction, the discharge gas from the reaction system or purification system, containing butadiene and/or acetic acid, is treated by contacting with diacetoxybutene and/or diacetoxybutane (absorbent) to allow butadiene and/or acetic acid to be absorbed by said absorbent. A part of the diacetoxybutene separated in a distillation tower from the reaction product solution containing diacetoxybutene produced by said three-component reaction can be used as said absorbent. In this case, butadiene and/or acetic acid can be recovered from said discharge gas by supplying the absorption solution into said distillation tower. Also usable as said absorbent is diacetoxybutane obtained by hydrogenation of diacetoxybutene.
Abstract: Unsaturated diesters are produced by a process which comprises reacting, in a flowing gaseous phase, a gaseous mixture comprising a conjugated diene, a carboxylic acid and molecular oxygen in the presence of (A) a catalyst comprising palladium, vanadium, antimony and at least one alkali metal carboxylate, or in the presence of (B) a catalyst comprising palladium, vandium, antimony, at least one alkali metal carboxylate and at least one alkali metal halide. The catalyst (A) maintains a high activity and a high selectivity for a long time. The catalyst (B), in which further the alkali metal halide is added, shows a higher activity and a higher selectivity for a longer time. And its activity and selectivity are stable and durable at high temperatures such as 160.degree. - 200.degree. C. Furthermore, the addition of the alkali metal halide suppresses combustion reaction of dienes such as butadiene remarkably.
