    Abstract: Crude bisphenol A containing a ketone solvent remaining form its manufacture and having a melting point of 150° C. or higher may be reacted with one or more alkylene oxide, in the absence of any added ketone solvent, at reduced temperatures compared with conventional, molten methods to give a fully alkoxylated adduct product having reduced color. By at least partially alkoxylating the bisphenol A, its potential for crystallization is disrupted and the partially alkoxylated bisphenol A has a lower melting point than the original bisphenol A permitting it to be more readily further alkoxylated at the reaction temperature. The alkoxylation reaction may be conducted at a temperature in the range of about 30 to about 140° C. Suitable catalysts may include tertiary amines or caustic compounds such as NaOH and KOH.

  • Patent number: 7910284
    Abstract: To overcome the problem that a device performance is degraded by the edge roughness of a photoresist pattern, a mixture of polynuclear phenol compounds having, in one molecule, 0 to 6 functional groups which are chemically converted due to actions of an acid with the solubility in an alkaline developer reduced is used as a material for photoresist. In the mixture, two or more triphenyl methane structures are bonded to portions other than the functional group in the nonconjugated state. Furthermore, the mixture comprises polynuclear compounds with the average number of functional groups of 2.5 or below and includes the polynuclear compounds not having any functional group per molecule by 15% or less in the term of weight ratio, and the polynuclear phenol compounds having 3 or more functional groups per molecule by 40% or less.

  • Publication number: 20110065196
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method of forming an ion of formula (I) comprising the steps of: (i) reacting a compound of the formula (IIa); with a biopolymer, BP, having at least one group capable of reacting with M to form a covalent linkage, to provide a biopolymer derivative of the formula (IIIa); and (ii) cleaving the C—X bond between X and the ?-carbon atom of the derivative of formula (IIIa) to form the ion of formula (I); where: (IV) is a carbon atom bearing a single positive charge or a single negative charge; and X is a group comprising a thioether sulphur atom bound directly to the ?-carbon which is capable of being cleaved from the ?-carbon atom to form an ion of formula (I). The biopolymer derivatives of the invention have enhanced ionisability with respect to free biopolymer (BP) enabling improved analysis of the biopolymer using mass spectrometry.
