  • Patent number: 6897244
    Abstract: Two derivatives of nootkatone, tetrahydronootkatone and 1,10-dihydronootkatone, are surprisingly effective as repellents of termites and mosquitos. Tetrahydronootkatone and 1,10-dihydronootkatone were shown to effectively repel termites at concentrations as low as 2 ?g/ml and 12.5 ?g/ml, respectively. Tetrahydronootkatone was shown to repel mosquitos at a concentration of 5%. Tetrahydronootkatone is an effective repellent of termites either by itself or as an addition to other substrates, including mulches made from wood products or other cellulose-containing material. Tetrahydronootkatone or 1,10-dihydronootkatone can be used to protect construction wood from attack by Formosan subterranean termites, either alone or used in combination with other compounds known to repel termites. It is also believed that these compounds will prove effective in repelling ants, ticks, and cockroaches. These derivatives of nootkatone are non-toxic to humans and other mammals and environmentally safe.

    Abstract: Chemical compositions are provided, for use as topical anesthetics or skin refrigerants. These compositions do not cause the depletion of the stratospheric ozone layer and are non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and less flammable than ethyl chloride. Also these chemical compositions match the skin temperature versus time profile needed in the management of myofascial pain syndromes, for effectively freezing skin prior to minor skin surgery and for effectively freezing skin prior to giving painless injections.

  • Patent number: 6660288
    Abstract: The use of specific perfume ingredients, e.g. tricyclodecenyl allyl ether, to repel insects. The perfume ingredients may be used in a composition comprising from 0.1 to 40 percent by weight of one or more of the perfume ingredients. Preferably at least one of the perfume ingredients has a hydrophobicity such that the common logarithm of the octanol-water partition coefficient, log P, of the perfume ingredient is in the range 1.0 to 6.0.

  • Publication number: 20030180349
    Abstract: Composition and methods for prevention and treatment of a respiratory infection. A composition comprising a single terpene, a terpene mixture, or a liposome-terpene(s) composition is disclosed. The composition can be a true solution of an effective amount of an effective terpene and a carrier such as water. The composition can be a suspension or emulsion of terpene, surfactant, and carrier. The composition(s) of the invention can be administered before or after the onset of the disease. Administration can be, for example, by spraying the respiratory tract with a solution of the present invention. Prevention and treatment of a respiratory infection by the inhalation of a solution containing a single bioactive terpene, a bioactive terpene mixture, or a liposome-terpene(s) composition before or after the onset of the infection is described. A true solution of terpene and water can be formed by mixing terpene and water at a solution-forming shear rate in the absence of a surfactant.
