Title: CITRAL DERIVATIVES

Applicant/Assignee: FLEXITRAL, INC

Application No.: 11/861610   Filing Date: 26/Sep/2007

Abstract:

Improved citral derivatives, and fragrances and flavorings including the derivatives, that have a longer useful shelf life than citral and/or fragrances and flavorings including citral, are disclosed. In particular, the derivatives maintain the fragrance characteristics of citral, while lowering the allergic properties, and lemony flavors and fragrances with a longer shelf-life than citral, are disclosed. Also disclosed are methods of making the derivatives, and articles of manufacture including the derivatives. In one embodiment, the derivatives are prepared by replacing one or more double bonds in citral with a cyclopropyl group, which can be unsubstituted, or substituted with one or two lower alkyl, preferably methyl groups.

The alkyl groups can optionally be substituted, for example, with electron donating groups, electron with drawing groups, groups which increase the hydrophilicity or hydrophobocity, and the like. In another embodiment, the derivatives are prepared by replacing the aldehyde group in citral with a nitrile, methyl ether or acetal group. The acetal groups can provide the compounds with a long lasting flavor or fragrance, where the acetals slowly hydrolyze to provide the aldehyde group in citral. In some embodiments, both the aldehyde and at least one of the double bond functional groups are both derivatized as described herein.

Examples of suitable articles of manufacture include candles, air fresheners, perfumes, disinfectant compositions, hypochlorite (bleach) compositions, beverages such as beer and soda, denture cleanser tablets and flavored orally-delivered products such as lozenges, candies, and the like.

The tips of the bristles are applied to the skin area to be shaved following or simultaneous with the wetting of the skin area with water, and then following or simultaneous with, lathering the skin area with shaving cream or gel.

A water-dispersible particle is provided that includes a sulfate or phosphate of potash in an amount ranging from 5% to 99.9% by weight of the total dry weight of the particle. A binder component is present in an amount from 1% to 95% by weight. The sulfate or phosphate of potash and the binder component on that contact with water causes particle dispersion into more than 100 pieces. A process for making a water-dispersible particle includes mechanical aggregation of a sulfate or phosphate of potash into a pellet. A binder component is present in the particle in an amount ranging from 1% to 95% by weight. The sulfate or phosphate of potash and the binder component are present in a form such that contact with water causes particle dispersion into more than 100 pieces. The pellet is then dried and ready to be applied.

Applicant/Assignee: ENGELHARD ARZNEIMITTEL GMBH & CO

Application No.: 10/031851   Filing Date: 21/Jul/2000

Abstract:

The invention concerns the use of tosylchloramide(s), tosylchloramide salt(s), their derivatives and/or the decomposition products for treating diseases of the skin, mucous membranes, organs and tissues, excluding treatment of retroviral diseases (HIV) and disinfecting processes. It has been shown that tosylchloramide compounds can be used even for all diseases of the skin and viral mucosa causing formation of vesicles and itching, and they can lead to similar results as those obtained when they are used to treat corresponding diseases in tissues and organs. They not only provide quick relief of the acute symptoms and cure, but they also reduce frequency of recurrence. The inventive use is characterised in that it leads to very good treatment results, entirely independently of the form of preparation used, and it does not have to be administered in one specific manner. Relatively low amounts of tosylchloramide active principle can provide complete cure.
