Applicant/Assignee: AQUAPHARM CHEMICALS PVT LIMITED

Application No.: WO2011IN00661 (PCT/IN2011/00661)   Filing Date: 23/Sep/2011

Abstract:

The present invention provides a water soluble biodegradable polymer and a process for preparation thereof. The polymer has characteristic NMR and FTIR peaks. The polymer is prepared by a process which comprises making a mixture of phosphatides and triglycerides, reacting the mixture with an anhydride in an organic solvent in presence of a catalyst at an elevated temperature for a duration ranging from one to three hours to obtain a reaction product, further hydrolyzing the reaction product, thereafter separating the solvent from the reaction product to obtain a mass, furthermore adding a second monomer with a catalyst to the mass, further curing the mass under stirring at reflux temperature for one to three hours, thereafter cooling the cured mass and neutralizing it with caustic lye to obtain the polymer.

The polymer obtained by above mentioned process is biodegradable and has high calcium sequestration and calcium salt inhibition properties suitable as an additive for detergents and water treatment applications.

Abstract:

The present invention relates to fungal serine protease variants, which comprise an amino acid substitution of valine at position 208 of the parent Fusarium equiseti Fe_RF6318 serine protease, wherein the position of the substitution corresponds to the amino acid sequence of the mature Fe_RF6318 enzyme defined in SEQ ID NO: 2. The variants have improved thermal stability and/or detergent stability compared to the parent Fe_RF6318 enzyme. Preferably the substitution is V208I and more preferably the variants comprise additional amino acid changes which further increase the stability. Also disclosed are nucleic acid sequences encoding said protease variants as well as recombinant vectors and host cells for the production of the variants. The serine protease variants are applicable in laundry and dish-washing detergent compositions, in treating fibers, in treating wool, in treating hair, in treating leather, in treating food or feed, or in any application involving modification, degradation or removal of proteinaceous material.

Abstract:

Sulfonate compositions are disclosed. The compositions include alkanesulfonates, alkenesulfonates, sultones, and hydroxy-substituted alkanesulfonates. The sulfonates comprise a reaction product of a metathesis-derived C10-C17 monounsaturated acid, octadecene-1, 18-dioic acid, or their ester derivatives with a sulfonating or sulfitating agent. In one aspect, the sulfonate composition is a sulfo-estolide made by reacting a metathesis-derived C10-C17 monounsaturated acid or octadecene-1,18-dioic acid with a sulfonating agent, optionally in the presence of a saturated fatty acid. The sulfonates are valuable for a wide variety of end uses, including cleaners, fabric treatment, hair conditioning, personal care (liquid cleansing products, conditioning bars, oral care products), paint additives, antimicrobial compositions, agricultural uses, and oil field applications.

Abstract:

The present invention provides a method of cleaning laundry, comprises the steps of: (I) pre-treating the laundry with a liquid pre-treatment composition

and (II) washing the thus-pre-treated laundry in a wash liquor comprising a main wash detergent formulation, preferably a main wash detergent powder. The liquid pre-treatment composition used in said method comprises (a) 0.005 to 20 wt% hydroxamate and (b)3 to 80 wt% of detersive surfactant system,wherein the weight ratio a) to b) lies in the range 6: 1to 1:16000, preferably 1:10 to 1:400. It was found that enhanced detergency, in particular with respect to particulate soils stains removal, can be obtained when applying the method of the present invention.

Abstract:

A process for washing a substrate. The process involves providing a detergent composition that includes a surfactant and an antifoam. The antifoam comprises a hydrophobic fluid having a surface tension of at least 27 mN/m and less than 40 mN/m and a finely divided solid hydrophobic filler dispersed in the hydrophobic fluid. The process further involves washing the substrate in an aqueous medium with the detergent composition. The antifoam does not affect foaming during the washing step. During the washing step, the detergent composition is applied to the substrate. The process further involves rinsing the substrate with the applied detergent composition with water, whereby foaming during the rinsing step is inhibited.

The polyacrylate polymer comprises: (i) 90 - 100 weight % of polymerized units derived from acrylic acid and (ii) up to 10 weight % of polymerized units derived from one or more C3-C8 monoethylenically unsaturated carboxylic acids, based on the total weight of said polyacrylate polymer. A laundry formulation is also provided which contains the synergistic mixture in an amount of up to 2 weight %, based on the total weight of the laundry formulation. Also provided are methods of promoting soil release from soiled fabric which involve contacting the soiled fabric with an aqueous solution comprising the above-described inventive synergistic mixture or with the above-described laundry formulation.

Applicant/Assignee: HEWLETT-PACKARD DEVELOPMENT COMPANY, L.P

Application No.: WO2011US39014 (PCT/US2011/39014)   Filing Date: 03/Jun/2011

Abstract:

An erasure fluid includes a vehicle, an erasure component incorporated into the vehicle, and a polymer. The erasure component interacts with a selected colorant of an erasable inkjet ink printed on a medium to erase the inkjet ink from the medium, and is chosen from persulfate ions, peroxymonosulfate ions, hydrogen peroxide, chlorate ions, hypochlorite ions, ascorbic acid, and a chelating agent. Further, the polymer is chosen from carboxymethylcelluloses, methyl celluloses, polyethylene glycols, guar gum, starches, and combinations thereof.

Title: THIOPHENE AZO CARBOXYLATE DYES AND LAUNDRY CARE COMPOSITIONS CONTAINING THE SAME

Applicant/Assignee: MILLIKEN & COMPANY

Application No.: WO2012US39537 (PCT/US2012/39537)   Filing Date: 25/May/2012

Abstract:

This application relates to thiophene azo carboxylate dyes for use as hueing agents, laundry care compositions comprising such dyes that may serve as hueing agents, processes for making such dyes and laundry care compositions and methods of using the same. The aforementioned dyes contain a formally charged moiety and are generally comprised of at least two components: at least one chromophore component and at least one polymeric component. Suitable chromophore components generally fluoresce blue, red, violet, or purple color when exposed to ultraviolet light, or they may absorb light to reflect these same shades. Such dyes are advantageous in providing a hueing effect, for example, a whitening effect to fabrics, while not building up over time and causing undesirable blue discoloration to the treated fabrics. Such dyes are also generally stable to bleaching agents used in laundry care compositions.

Title: PARTICULATE COMPOSITION

Applicant/Assignee: NOVOZYMES A/S

Application No.: WO2012EP61307 (PCT/EP2012/61307)   Filing Date: 14/Jun/2012

Abstract:

Enzymes tend to be inactivated during wash by a bleach catalyst in combination with a source of organic peroxyacids. The risk of enzyme inactivation by active bleach catalyst is reduced when the release of the enzyme into the wash solution is delayed. The enzyme stability during washing together with a bleach catalyst can be improved by applying a delayed-release coating to cores which comprise the enzyme.
