  • Patent number: 10128390
    Abstract: Semiconductor materials offer several potential benefits as active elements in the development of harvesting-energy conversion technologies. In particular, lead selenide (PbSe) semiconductors have been used and proposed to design solar energy harvesting devices, IR sensors, FET devices, amongst others. The present disclosure provides a lead selenide capped with an aromatic ligand. The use of an aromatic ligand, and more specifically benzoic acid, provides robustness and more durability to the lead selenide, and therefore prevents the lead selenide from breaking or cracking easily. Also the aromatic ligand prevents the degradation and oxidation of the lead selenide, without affecting any of the lead selenide electronic and chemical characteristics.

  • Patent number: 8686174
    Abstract: The present invention provides a novel modified-polysiloxane, method for producing the same, and a cosmetic containing the same. The aforementioned modified-polysiloxane exhibits a reduced viscosity and superior operationability as compared with conventional polyoxyalkylene-modified polysiloxanes and polyglycerol-modified polysiloxanes. In addition, since the modified-polysiloxane is hardly oxidized in air, hardly produce allergenic compounds such as formates, and aldehydes such as formaldehyde, during storage over time, an increased environmental compatibility can be exhibited. In addition, the modified-polysiloxane of the present invention exhibits a reduced hydrolysis property and is stable. In the modified-polysiloxane of the present invention, the terminal hydroxyl groups of a polyglycerol-modified polysiloxane are partially blocked with hydrocarbon groups.

  • Patent number: 8680304
    Abstract: The present invention is directed toward a series of polyglycerol silicone polyesters with tunable ascetics and performance in cosmetic formulation. These novel polyglycerol silicone polyesters are designed to be high definition polymers. High Definition Polymers is meant that the polymer contains a variety of groups containing different chemical and physical properties that can be controlled by the polymerization process. High definition polymers are polymers are synthesized to have each portion of the polymer to achieve a desired aesthetics. These high definition polymers physical properties can be tuned quickly and easily but the polymerization conditions. The physical properties of the current invention can be tuned rapidly by controlling the ratio of fatty groups, as well as the cross-linker used. The resulting polyglycerol silicone polyesters have outstanding aesthetics, unique solubility and physical properties.

  • Publication number: 20140054162
    Abstract: This invention provides a method of initiating chain reaction in a chain reaction medium including (a) a macroinitiator and (b) chain reactants selected from monomers, reactive oligomers, reactive diluents and derivatives thereof and mixtures of the forgoing. The macroinitiator includes a multidentate anchor segment coordinated with a magnetic nanoparticle through more than one bond, and a chain reaction initiator segment bound to the multidentate anchor and providing a weak bond that can be cleaved to initiate a chain reaction. The method further comprises subjecting the chain reaction medium to an alternating current magnetic field to vibrate the magnetic nanoparticle and thereby cleave the weak bond, the cleavage resulting in the initiation of a chain reaction involving the chain reactants.

  • Publication number: 20130345412
    Abstract: The invention relates to a radical-initiated thiol-ene or thiol-yne “click” reaction that provides a simple and efficient route to diverse trialkoxysilanes. Trialkoxysilanes made in this way are obtained in quantitative to near-quantitative yields with high purity without any or minimal purification. A wide range of functional groups is tolerated in this approach, and even complex alkenes click with the silane precursors. The modular nature of these radical-based thiol-ene or thiol-yne “click” reactions allows a wide variety of pendant groups to be coupled to silane compounds that can then be coupled to a wide variety surfaces in order to modify their material properties. Consequently, such radical initiated thiol-ene and thiol-yne reactions provide facile and efficient methods for preparing an enormous number of surface-active functional trialkoxysilanes.

  • Publication number: 20130331590
    Abstract: A cylindrical reactor has walls and a base, forming a chamber in which permanently manufactured micelle array nanoparticles may be manufactured. The reactor has a disk impeller inside the chamber which serves to mix reagents in the chamber and a collar which facilitates the mixing process. The reactor is effective to input an amount of energy to the mixed reagents such that particle coagulation is prevented but formation of PCMA nanoparticles is permitted. A method for manufacturing PCMA nanoparticles is disclosed. Reagents, beginning with prepared core particles, are stepwise added to a reactor and mixed. A high sheer mixing unit is used to input an amount of energy to the mixed reagents such that particle coagulation is prevented but formation of PCMA nanoparticles is permitted.
