  • Patent number: 8722591
    Abstract: Disclosed is an environmentally conscious, odor-free lighter fluid mixture comprising a 50-70% ethanol and 30-50% biodiesel combination. Methyl-ester, ethyl-ester and propyl-ester fatty acids, commonly referred to as biodiesel, are clean burning fuels derived from new or waste vegetable oil such as soybean, canola or sunflower. Combined with an ethanol accelerant, the mixture provides a lighter fluid that is easily ignitable without risk of detonation or explosion, and one that brings charcoal briquettes up to temperature quicker than traditional methods. The mixture is petroleum free, which eliminates the associated unpleasant odors and potential health risks of traditional lighter fluid, including a reduction in the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the environment. The mixture offers a renewable, sustainable, and efficient ignition source for charcoal that does not sacrifice utility compared to traditional lighter fluid, and does not impart undesirable flavors onto grilled food.

  • Patent number: 8303969
    Abstract: A substantially anhydrous, spreadable warming lubricant composition comprising a mixture of glycerin, a polyhydric alcohol, and a non-ionic surfactant, the viscosity of the composition being less than that of glycerin but greater than that of the polyhydric alcohol, thereby promoting formation of a useful thin layer on a surface with which the composition is brought into contact, the surfactant improving wetting and spreadability of the composition on skin and latex, such that the composition can be applied to skin or a condom and provide an optimal warming effect upon contact with ambient moisture during use and such that the composition can be added to a condom package and, over the course of about a week, spread and coat nearly the entire internal and external surfaces of the condom.

  • Publication number: 20120202723
    Abstract: Polyhydroxyl functional compounds that contain an all hydrocarbon backbone, wherein all of the hydroxyl groups are bonded to a primary carbon atom, are prepared through the reaction of an alpha, omega-terminal diol having a total of from about 6 to about 42 carbon atoms terminated with a mono-ol having a total of from about 4 to about 42 carbon atoms. The polyols can be used as additives in hydrocarbon oils, drilling fluids, industrial and automotive lubricating fluids, dispersants, engine lubricants, greases, coatings, adhesives, and also in magnetorheological fluids to improve various properties such as dispersion, wear protection, reduction of friction, high temperature stability, and improved aging.

  • Publication number: 20120190600
    Abstract: A natural algae-based synthetic lubricant derived from harvesting kelp from the ocean, recovering sieve sap from the kelp, drying the sieve sap, and removing salts and oxides to leave a composition having a concentration of polyols (Mannitol about 70% and Mannose about 0.4%) and about 28% by weight of a high molecular weight polymer. The synthetic lubricant may be used as a drag reducing agent and additive for existing lubricants and also further reacted with fatty esters to form a hybrid lubricant that may serve as a total replacement for existing lubricants.
