Abstract: Pheromone compositions based on a combination of squalene, linoleic acid and 1-docosanol are described. The compositions are useful for behavior modification in mammals that exhibit undesirable or harmful stress-related behaviors.
Abstract: Medicine, in particular medications for treating blood losses, hypoxic and ishemic states, for improving a blood oxygen supply and for preserving isolated perfused organs and tissues. The inventive medical emulsion of perfluororganic compounds includes rapidly excretable perfluororganic compounds such as perfluordecalin, perfluoractilbromide, a perfluoroganic additive embodied in the form of a mixture of perfluorinated tertiary amines and phospholipids in the form of a water-salt dispersion. The perfluordecalin and perfluoractilbromide are contained in the composition of the rapidly excretable perfluororganic compounds at a ratio ranging from 10:1 to 1:10. The mixture of perfluorinated tertiary amines is embodied in the form of the mixture of perfluorotpripropylamine and the co-products thereof: cis- and trans-isomers perfluor-1-propyl 3,4-dimethylpirrolidone and perfluor-1-propyl-4-methhylpiperidine.
Abstract: The present invention relates to a fungicidal composition obtained by mixing a 1,2,3-thiadiazole derivative of general formula (I) useful as a plant disease controller with at least one fungicide selected from the compounds having a fungicidal activity against plant diseases, and to a method for using the same: 1
Abstract: Compounds comprising
a straight backbone carbon chain of 8-16C, optionally substituted with 1-5 alkyl groups (1-6C);
said chain optionally functionalized at one terminus with halo, —OR, —SR, —NR2, —OOCR, —NROCR wherein R is alkyl (1-6C), or phosphate or pyrophosphate, or functionalized wherein a terminal carbon is optionally in the form of —COOR, —CONR2 or —COR wherein R is alkyl (1-6C); and
wherein said chain may optionally contain 1-&pgr;-bonds or the epoxides thereof
are useful as calcium channel inhibitors. Libraries of these compounds can also be used to identify antagonists for other targets.
Abstract: An aqueous antimicrobial composition comprising from about 10 to about 30 percent by weight of ethyl alcohol, from about 2 to about 5 percent by weight of benzyl alcohol and the remainder to 100% water, and a method of use of the composition for destroying or reducing the number of microbes on a surface contaminated therewith.

Abstract: A stable concentrated aqueous emulsion of perfluorochemical, a phospholipid and a triglyceride of fatty acids has been demonstrated which has enhanced stability, diminished particle size and heightened tolerance by biological systems. The emulsion has utility as an oxygen transport medium, such as artificial blood. The emulsion can optionally include additional emulsifiers of SURFYNOL.RTM.SE surfactant and PLURONIC.RTM. P-105 surfactant. The emulsion is produced using an improved emulsification technique. The invention includes methods of oxygen transport in vascular systems wherein the oxygen carrying capacity of the vascular systems is improved with the emulsions of the present invention. Methods are also described for organ preservation extra-vivo by perfusing, suffusing, flushing and filling organs outside the body with the oxygen carrying emulsions of the present invention.

Abstract: A storage stable, water emulsifiable, substantially non-aqueous liquid or low melting solid concentrate adapted for on-site preparation of an aqueous emulsion of an agricultural chemical, consisting essentially of a solution, in(a) a liquid hydrophobic agricultural chemical having biocidal activity, of(b) a solid hydrophobic polymer, in an amount effective to achieve sustained release of (a), and(c) an emulsifying agent, in an amount effective to form a stable oil-in-water emulsion when the concentrate is mixed with water.
Abstract: A process for the control of chalkbrood disease among leafcutter bees including the step of fumigating the larva stage of the leafcutter bee with a fungicide in an amount effective to kill or check the growth of spores of the fungus Ascosphaera sp. Where old, previously used beeboards, equipment, grooved boards, shelters, trays, incubators, cell removers, tumblers and other apparatus are used in rearing leafcutter bees, the process further includes the step of fumigating the apparatus.
