  • Patent number: 8956596
    Abstract: The present invention is drawn to a process for improving the efficiency of sunscreens using a series of polyesters based upon sorbeth ethoxylates esterified with fatty acids, then crosslinked with dimer acid. These polyesters exhibit a synergistic interaction with sunscreen actives improving the efficiency providing a “shield” for the body from the harmful effects of the sun. These sorbitol alkoxylates are then reacted with dimer acid, resulting in a series of novel polyesters. The linking of the two spider esters together with dimer provide an amphilic macromolecule possessing both hydrophilic and hydrophobic portions covalently bonded to the same molecule, this provides both a boost in sun protection factor (SPF) and the ability for the sunscreen actives to be applied to wet skin.

    Abstract: Hexadecyl cis-9-tetradecenoate commonly known as Cetyl myristoleate (CMO) is being used for the treatment of osteoarthritis and other joint inflammatory diseases, cis-9-Tetradecenoic acid (cis-9-myristoleic acid) is the main precursor for the preparation of CMO. As there are limited natural plant sources for cis-9-tetradecenoic acid, the present invention aimed at the synthesis of cis-9-tetradecenoic acid methyl ester from oleic acid methyl ester. As oleic acid is not available in pure form, this has to be isolated from oleic acid-rich oils like olive oil. cis-10-Tetradecenoic acid methyl ester, an isomer of cis-9-tetradecenoic acid was also prepared from undecenoic acid methyl ester, a derivative of castor oil. Undecenoic acid is easily available commercially in pure form.

  • Publication number: 20130281688
    Abstract: Unsaturated alcohol compositions are obtained by reducing a metathesis-derived hydrocarbyl unsaturated ester. Also disclosed is a process for preparing an unsaturated alcohol composition, where a metathesis derived hydrocarbyl carbonyl compound is reacted in the presence of a silane compound, an organic solvent, and a catalyst system prepared from a metallic complex and a reducing agent. This mixture is then hydrolyzed with a metallic base, and then mixed with organic solvent. The resultant mixture is then separated, washed, dried, and/or purified to produce the unsaturated alcohol composition. The unsaturated alcohol derivatives are useful in many end-use applications, including, for example, lubricants, functional fluids, fuels, functional additives for such lubricants, functional fluids and fuels, plasticizers, asphalt additives, friction reducing agents, plastics, and adhesives.
