  • Patent number: 10246670
    Abstract: What is disclosed is a liquid composition containing: 80 mol % to 99.9999 mol % of (Z)-1,2-dichloro-3,3,3-trifluoropropene (1223Z) and 0.0001 mol % to 20 mol % of (E)-1,2-dichloro-3,3,3-trifluoropropene (1223E). The liquid composition has small impact on the global environment and exerts azeotrope-like properties. Therefore, the composition of the liquid composition is not substantially changed even when the liquid composition is used in an open system or used for a long period. The composition of the liquid composition is also rarely changed even when the liquid composition is recovered by distillation. Therefore, the liquid mixture according to the present invention can be used suitably as a cleaning agent (a solvent).

Green solvents are derived from organic matter, such as plants. They are not the product of petroleum feed stocks. Preferably, two terpene alcohols are added to the green solvent. Further, the addition of at least one terpene alcohol improves both the freeze resistance and the shelf life of the final green solvent solution.

  • Patent number: 8323417
    Abstract: A method of treatment for inhibiting sulfur-based corrosion or scaling or for removing scaling from a surface including inhibiting corrosion caused by sulfur-containing materials, reducing corrosion caused by sulfur-containing materials, inhibiting scaling caused by sulfur-containing materials in gas, liquid or solid phase or any combination of multiple phases of materials, reducing scaling caused by sulfur-containing materials, and removing scaling caused by sulfur-containing materials. The method involves contacting sulfur-containing materials with a composition containing a turpentine liquid. The method also involves contacting corrodible surfaces or surfaces prone to scaling with a composition containing a turpentine liquid.

  • Publication number: 20120264673
    Abstract: A solvent blend cleaner useful for reflux cleaning of chemical manufacturing equipment, including that used in manufacturing pharmaceuticals, comprises a blend of environmentally friendly and safe solvents selected on the basis of specific criteria, such as vapor pressure, vapor density, boiling point, specific heat, and heat of vaporization, among other things; achieves excellent cleaning even upon further dilution with water; and avoids the disadvantages associated with the use of conventional commodity solvents in reflux cleaning methods. Desired solvency, cleaning and wetting properties of the inventive formulations in use can be achieved through blending of solvents having the selected criteria. Additives, such as surfactants, can be added to enhance cleaning and lower solvent requirements.
