  • Patent number: 10611860
    Abstract: This invention discloses a process for preparing a branched polymer via emulsion polymerization at room temperature and is related to the field of polymer synthesis and preparation of functional polymers. A mixture of water as medium, anionic surfactant as emulsifier, sodium bicarbonate as pH regulator, the reductant monomer containing both polymerizable double bond and the reducing group combined with the persulfate as the oxidant to be useful as initiator, styrene, (meth) acrylate or vinyl acetate as monomer, is reacted to synthesize the branched polymers via a free radical in-situ emulsion polymerization at room temperature and ambient pressure. The monomer conversion can be above 85% in a range of about 10 mins to 10 hours of the reaction time. The process for preparing a branched polymer is carried out under the conditions of emulsion polymerization at room temperature and normal pressure without the addition or assistance of the branched monomer and other initiators.

  • Patent number: 8999308
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a two-part cosmetic product that imparts a filling and/or swelling effect to hair, eyebrows or eyelashes, preferably a mascara. The invention uses an anhydrous base coat composition with a water absorbing ingredient being a salt of acrylic or polyacrylic acid and a CO2 releasing compound which is a carbonate or bicarbonate to expand or swell the film former of the top coat with the in situ generated CO2 when the water containing top coat is applied to the anhydrous base coat.
