  • Patent number: 10923723
    Abstract: Halogenation of para-aminophenol and polymerization of the halogenation product results in electro-conductive redox polymer. For example, the para-aminophenol is chlorinated or brominated in an acidic solution, and the halogenation product is polymerized upon increasing the pH and upon oxidation. The halogenation product can be polymerized during electro-deposition of a thin film upon an anode current collector from an electrolyte solution to produce a sensor electrode, and the halogenation product can be mixed with electro-conductive carbon material to produce electrode-active material for storage battery electrodes. For example, the sensor electrode has an electrochemical reduction potential and a charge-discharge cycle period inversely proportional to pH, and the storage battery electrodes are positive electrodes in a storage battery having zinc negative electrodes in a zinc salt electrolyte solution.

    Abstract: The invention relates to a polymer product obtained by polymerization of i) at least one monomer selected from N-vinylformamide and vinyl acetate, and ii) maleic anhydride to give a copolymer comprising N-vinylformamide and/or vinyl acetate and maleic anhydride followed by hydrolyzing formamide groups originating from N-vinylformamide to amino groups and/or acetate groups originating from vinyl acetate to hydroxyl groups and acid anhydride to dicarboxylic acid groups to give a water-soluble copolymer comprising amine and/or hydroxyl and carboxyl groups, wherein the molar ratio of the N-vinylformamide and/or vinyl acetate monomer to the maleic anhydride monomer is from 70:30 to 30:70. The polymer product can be used as a dispersing agent or as a scale inhibiting agent.

  • Publication number: 20150132564
    Abstract: The invention relates to a coating composition for making a porous inorganic oxide coating layer on a substrate, the composition comprising an inorganic oxide precursor as binder, a solvent, and a synthetic polyampholyte as pore forming agent. The size of the pores in the coating can be advantageously controlled by the comonomer composition of the polyampholyte, and/or by selecting conditions like temperature, pH, salt concentration, and solvent composition when making the composition. The invention also relates to a method of making such coating composition, to a process of applying a coating on a substrate using such composition, and to such coated substrate showing a specific combination of optical and mechanical properties.

  • Publication number: 20150133584
    Abstract: The present invention provides compositions and methods involving the use of a carboxylate graft polymer having high molecular weight and low ratio of acid-to-polyoxyalkylene groups. Such clay-mitigation is particularly useful for treating clay and clay-bearing aggregates, particularly those aggregates used for construction purposes. The present invention minimizes the need to wash the aggregates, thus preserving fine aggregates (“fines”) content in construction materials, and thereby beneficiating the performance and/or properties of construction materials containing the clay-bearing aggregates.

  • Publication number: 20150132479
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of making hybrid organic-inorganic core-shell nano-particles, comprising the steps of a) providing colloidal organic particles comprising a synthetic polyampholyte as a template; b) adding at least one inorganic oxide precursor; and c) forming a shell layer from the precursor on the template to result in core-shell nano-particles. With this method it is possible to make colloidal organic template particles having an average particle size in the range of 10 to 300 nm; which size can be controlled by the comonomer composition of the polyampholyte, and/or by selecting dispersion conditions. The invention also relates to organic-inorganic or hollow-inorganic core-shell nano-particles obtained with this method, to compositions comprising such nano-particles, to different uses of said nano-particles and compositions, and to products comprising or made from said nano-particles and compositions, including anti-reflective coatings and composite materials.

  • Publication number: 20150119524
    Abstract: Provided is an antifoaming agent for a coating agent, which suppresses foaming of a coating agent by being blended into a nonaqueous agent in a small amount, thereby improving pinhole preventing performance, and which may form a thermo-setting coating film or a thermo-drying coating film having an excellent aesthetic appearance by suppressing the generation of pinholes without deteriorating smoothing performance of the coating film even under conditions where pinholes are easily generated.
