  • Patent number: 8529970
    Abstract: Materials with high levels of unsaponifiable matter, such as extracts from plants, produce hydrolysates with unique properties. Properties that are sought in traditional saponification of natural oils are a result of low levels of unsaponifiables. These properties include high levels of aqueous surfactant activity, water-solubility or ready water-dispersability, activity as foaming agents, and the like. An objective of traditional saponification processes is to increase the water-solubility and surfactant activity of naturally occurring materials. It has been found that the application of a hydrolysis process to materials, particularly materials with a high level of unsaponifiables (e.g., at least 6 weight percent of the material), produces a product with properties significantly different from those products resulting from the conventional saponification of materials with less than 6 weight percent of unsaponifiables.

  • Patent number: 6890525
    Abstract: cis-Jasmone has been discovered to be useful as a semiochemical that changes the behaviour of insects and/or the physiology of plants. It has direct signalling roles with plant-feeding aphids, in attraction of aphid predators and parasitoids, and may act as an airborne signal inducing production of volatile plant semiochemicals, including the monoterpene (E)-?-ocimene, that stimulate foraging by parasitoids. It is an extremely benign compound having, to human beings, a pleasant aroma and gives a long-lasting effect after removal of the stimulus.

  • Patent number: 6534078
    Abstract: A micro-encapsulated pepper-mustard composition which comprises positioning pepper and mustard mixtures within a cluster of surfactant molecules, i.e. micelles, dispersed in water. This micro-encapsulation process involves first forming the micelles in water by exceeding the given critical micelle concentration for either one, two, or three different surfactant types. The active ingredient, pepper and mustard, is then added to this mixture and subsequently emulsified into small liquid drops in order to facilitate swelling of the micelles by way of migration or diffusion of the active ingredient molecules through the water phase and into the micelles. The resulting encapsulated pepper and mustard is effectively stabilized by the surfactant molecules, and the resulting stabilized micro-encapsulated dispersion will not undergo phase separation.
