  • Patent number: 11191707
    Abstract: Methods and kits for treating hair or preventing damage in the relaxing of hair are disclosed herein. Hair that is damaged during a relaxing treatment with hydroxide-containing relaxing agents, can be treated with formulations containing one or more active agents. The active agent formulations can be applied simultaneously with the hair relaxing formulation, or optionally applied immediately following application of the relaxing formulation, to reduce damage and breakage. Use of the active agent formulation along with a relaxing treatment can be used to control the level of curl achieved or retained in the relaxed hair, as compared to the natural amount of curl in the untreated hair.

  • Patent number: 10259995
    Abstract: A treatment fluid that includes an aqueous fluid, an inorganic acid, and a hydrophobically modified quaternized polysaccharide may be useful in mitigating corrosion of metal surfaces by the inorganic acid. For example, a wellbore operation may include introducing the treatment fluid into a wellbore penetrating a subterranean formation and contacting a metal surface with a treatment fluid.

  • Patent number: 10186961
    Abstract: A method for suppressing voltage overshoot at an output of a voltage regulator is disclosed. The voltage regulator includes at least one channel having a first set of (high-side) transistors and a second set of (low-side) transistors. In implementations of the method, an output voltage at an output of at least one channel of a voltage regulator is detected and compared with a reference voltage. A rate of change associated with the output voltage is also determined and compared with a threshold rate of change. When the output voltage is greater than the reference voltage and the rate of change is greater than the threshold rate of change, a resistance value associated with the second set of transistors is increased from a first resistance value to a second resistance value to prevent the output voltage from overshooting and/or to suppress an output voltage overshoot.

  • Patent number: 10172946
    Abstract: Monodisperse glycogen or phytoglycogen nanoparticles are polyfunctional additives suitable for use in aqueous or alcohol-based cosmetic, pharmaceutical, or food formulations. The nanoparticles may be isolated from various sources (such as corn), and are optionally modified with a range of organic moieties (such as octenyl succinic acid). The monodisperse and particulate nature of the glycogen/phytoglycogen is believed to render such materials useful as rheological modifiers (including modulation of thixotropic behavior), stabilizers of organic and biological materials, and photostabilizers in sunscreens.

  • Patent number: 10126298
    Abstract: Open three-dimensional network, microporous hydrogels containing substrates attached to binding molecules is disclosed. The hydrogel is comprised of a hydrated gel matrix containing substrates embedded in the matrix. The substrates are attached to binding molecules that selectively bind specific molecules that encounter the hydrogel. Thus the hydrogel serves to selectively bind out target molecules from an aqueous environment or sample that the hydrogel comes in contact with and concentrates them within the hydrogel.

  • Patent number: 10064975
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a biological film-forming agent which is for facilitating wound healing and coating and protecting biological organs, and for coating and protecting damaged cells, wound surfaces, organs and damaged sites of organs, and wound surfaces reaching soft tissues such as muscle and facia, periosteum or bone cortex. Provided is a biological film-forming agent for suppressing exudation of intracellular fluid from damaged cells, suppressing expansion of inflammation reactions and secondary inflammation reactions resulting from production of fibrin and eliminating adverse effects caused by formation of stabilised fibrin on healing. Various problems can be solved by using the agent containing aluminium chloride, cyclodextrin and water as base components.
