  • Patent number: 11578159
    Abstract: The invention relates to the use of low levels of glycols and short chain diols to control air void formation in any polymerization reaction having carbonyl-containing monomers, and preferably carboxylic acid ester monomers, at a level of at least 10% of total monomer, where the monomer has a peak polymerization exotherm temperature of greater than the boiling point of the monomer. The glycols and short chain diols are used in the polymization mixture at levels of 0.5 to 10 weight percent, based on the carboxylic acid ester-containing monomer. It is believed the glycols and short chain diols hydrogen bond with the —(C?O)O— containing monomer to increase the monomer boiling point, and decrease or even eliminate the formation of air voids due to monomer boiling. The invention is especially useful in polymerization of methyl methacrylate polymers and copolymers, either neat, or as a polymer composite system.

  • Patent number: 11473033
    Abstract: The invention relates to agents reducing the hydrodynamic drag of a turbulent flow of petroleum products in the process of transportation in pipelines. The technical result of the solution involves the preservation of the polymer structure so that the polymer is more effective in reducing the hydrodynamic drag, grinding costs in the production of the DRA, the aggregation of the DRA while reducing the amount of the separating agent and the need to inject a smaller amount of the reagent to reduce the hydrodynamic drag. The specified technical result is produced due to the development of a reagent for reducing the hydrodynamic drag of hydrocarbon liquids in pipelines, which consists of the first and the second component, in which case the first component comprises the particles of polyalphaolefin or polyacrylate, the second component is an anti-agglomerating agent.

  • Patent number: 10793783
    Abstract: A problem of the crude oil industry is the presence of large amounts of water and salts, which can not be efficiently removed by conventional dehydrating polymers. In addition, the acid stimulation operations of petroleum wells cause the chemical degradation of demulsifiers such as polyethers and phenolic resins, reducing drastically their efficiency as water and salt removers. Disclosed herein is a series of new copolymers that are combinations of an alkyl acrylate and a carboxyalkyl acrylate, synthesized by semi-continuous emulsion polymerization (under starved feed conditions), which ensures both the homogeneity of the different chains as well as the randomness of the monomers distribution. The acrylic-carboxyacrylic copolymers show good performance as water/oil emulsion breaker initiators, water droplet coalescers and clarifiers of the remaining aqueous phase.

    Abstract: Drag reducing compositions comprising polymer particles, where the polymer particles include copolymers comprising the residues of at least one methacrylate monomer and at least one comonomer having a polymerizable vinyl group, where the comonomer has no more than one pendant substituent per vinyl carbon. The drag reducing compositions can have improved dissolution rates in hydrocarbon-containing fluids. The drag reducing compositions can be added to a hydrocarbon-containing fluid to decrease the pressure drop associated with the turbulent flow of the hydrocarbon-containing fluid through a conduit.

  • Publication number: 20140299969
    Abstract: Compositions for directed self-assembly (DSA) patterning techniques are provided. Methods for directed self-assembly are also provided in which a DSA composition comprising a block copolymer is applied to a substrate and then self-assembled to form the desired pattern. The block copolymer includes at least two blocks of differing etch rates, so that one block (e.g., polymethylmethacrylate) is selectively removed during etching. Because the slower etching block (e.g., polystyrene) is modified with an additive to further slow the etch rate of that block, more of the slow etching block remains behind to fully transfer the pattern to underlying layers.
