This was essentially achieved by using particulate compounds corresponding to formula R1R2R3N+CH2CNX-, in which R1, R2, and R3 independently of one another represent an alkyl, alkenyl or aryl group containing 1 to 18 carbon atoms, in addition to which the groups R2 and R3 may even be part of a heterocycle including the N atom and optionally other hetero atoms, and X is a charge-equalizing anion. Dishwashing detergents, more particularly machine dishwashing detergents, contain about 1% by weight to 10% by weight of this bleach-boosting agent.

Title: Hypochlorite free method for preparation of stable carboxylated carbohydrate products

Applicant/Assignee: WEYERHAEUSER COMPANY

Application No.: 10/856198   Filing Date: 03/Sep/2004

Abstract:

A method of making a carboxylated carbohydrate is disclosed, cellulose being a preferred carbohydrate material. Carboxylated cellulose fibers can be produced whose fiber strength and degree of polymerization is not significantly sacrificed. The method involves the use of a catalytic amount of a hindered cyclic oxammonium compounds as a primary oxidant and chlorine dioxide as a secondary oxidant in an aqueous environment. The oxammonium compounds may be formed in situ from their corresponding amine, hydroxylamine, or nitroxyl compounds. The oxidized cellulose may be stabilized against D.P. loss and color reversion by further treatment with an oxidant such as sodium chlorite or a chlorine dioxide/hydrogen peroxide mixture. Alternatively it may be treated with a reducing agent such as sodium borohydride.

In the case of cellulose the method results in a high percentage of carboxyl groups located at the fiber surface. The product is especially useful as a papermaking fiber where it contributes strength and has a higher attraction for cationic additives. The product is also useful as an additive to recycled fiber to increase strength. The method can be used to improve properties of either virgin or recycled fiber. It does not require high alpha-cellulose fiber but is suitable for regular market pulps.

Application No.: 10/913976   Filing Date: 06/Aug/2004

Abstract:

A stable oxidizing composition and a method of preparing such composition are presented. The composition includes a peroxygen (e.g., potassium monopersulfate, percarbonate) particle suspended in an alcoholic gel. The alcohol content in the gel prevents the peroxygen particle from coming into contact with water during storage, thereby helping maintain a high available oxygen level. When the alcoholic gel is mixed with water, it becomes less viscous and exposes the peroxygen particle to the water. The peroxygen is ready for use when it dissolves in the water. Other additives may also be suspended in the alcoholic gel for storage. The composition is prepared by first preparing an alcoholic gel, then suspending a peroxygen particle in the alcoholic gel. The alcoholic gel is prepared by combining an alcohol with a polymer.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/228985   Filing Date: 16/Sep/2005

Abstract:

Composition and method for bleaching are presented. The composition includes a reactor and an oxidizing agent. The reactor includes a core that contains an oxidizer reactant and generates dioxirane, percarboxylic acid, chlorine dioxide, hydroxyl radicals, and/or N-halo-amine when contacted by a main solvent. A reactor wall surrounds the core and controls diffusion of the main solvent to the core through the pores. The reactor wall has a substantially lower solubility in the main solvent than the oxidizer reactant and the generated product such that the reactor wall remains substantially intact until generation of the product is substantially complete. The oxidizing agent is in contact with the main solvent. The oxidizing agent, which may be a hypohalite donor, chlorine dioxide donor, halo-amine donor, percarboxylic acid donor, hydroxyl radical donor, persulfate(s), or a hydrogen peroxide donor, has an order of selectivity that is different from the product generated in the reactor.
