  • Patent number: 10113130
    Abstract: High density renewable diesel and jet fuels have been generated by blending multicyclic sesquiterpanes with a synthetic paraffinic kerosene (5-methylundecane). The sesquiterpanes impart high density and volumetric net heat of combustion to the blends, while inclusion of the modestly branched paraffin decreases the viscosity and increases the cetane number of the blends. A surrogate diesel fuel including 65% sesquiterpanes and 35% 5-methylundecane had a cetane number of 45.7, a density of 0.853 g/ml, and a volumetric net heat of combustion (NHOC) of 133,593 btu/gal. By increasing the amount of paraffin to 60% by volume, a jet fuel surrogate was prepared with a cetane number of 57.0, a density of 0.806 g/ml, a ?20° C. viscosity of 7.9 est, and a NHOC of 124,257 btu/gal. The results show that full-performance and even ultra-performance fuels can be generated by combining bio-derived sesquiterpanes and paraffins.

  • Patent number: 8476195
    Abstract: There is a need for a selective, low-risk herbicide that can be used to control weeds in cereal cultures and turf. The present invention discloses that a bacterial secondary metabolite, thaxtomin and optionally another herbicide is an effective herbicide on broadleaved, sedge and grass weeds. Thaxtomin A and structurally similar compounds can be used as natural herbicides to control the germination and growth of weeds in cereal, turf grass, Timothy grass and pasture grass cultures with no phytotoxicity to these crops. As a natural, non-toxic compound, thaxtomin can be used as a safe alternative for weed control in both conventional and organic farming and gardening systems.

  • Publication number: 20130023416
    Abstract: Mutant rice resistant/tolerant to ACCase inhibiting herbicides, in particular FOP herbicides, are listed in Table 1. The ACCase inhibitng herbicides used for selection include quizalofop. An exemplary mutant rice tolerant to an ACCase herbicide is disclosed, with a rice genome having G2096S or the equivalent, in the carboxyl transferase domain of the ACCase coding gene, using the Black-Grass numbering system. This mutation shows differential response to FOPs vs. DIMs herbicides, and a greater differential with comparable non-resistant rice lines. Methods to control weeds and methods to produce herbicide resistant rice including transgenic rice, are disclosed.
