Anderson Donald R, Frisque Alvin J: Process for rapidly dissolving water-soluble polymers. Nalco Chemical Company, November 30, 1971: US3624019 (157 worldwide citation)

Water-soluble vinyl addition polymers and gums may be rapidly dissolved in water by first dispersing these polymers into a water-in-oil emulsion and then inverting these emulsions in water. The inversion of the emulsion releases the polymer into water as a solution.

A composition suitable as an additive in down-hole fluid for inhibiting clay swelling in a down-hole formation is comprised of an aqueous solution of a quaternary amine-based cationic polyelectrolyte and salt(s). The cation of the salt(s) may be a divalent salt cation, a choline cation, are certain ...

John E Hoots, Barry E Hunt: Fluorescent tracers - chemical treatment monitors. Nalco Chemical Company, Kinzer Plyer Dorn McEachran & Jambor, November 8, 1988: US04783314 (117 worldwide citation)

A method to determine performance of a treating agent (CA) added to a system body of liquid to enhance performance of the liquid body is determined by employing an inert fluorescent tracer (T) in a known T:CA dosage proportion, prepared on the basis of a concentration of CA (e.g. ppm) proposed for o ...

Omar M Yaghi: Crystalline metal-organic microporous materials. Nalco Chemical Company, Robert A Miller, James J Drake, July 15, 1997: US05648508 (107 worldwide citation)

Novel metal-organic microporous materials are prepared in solution using mild reaction conditions from a metal or metalloid ion with a ligand containing multidentate functional groups in the presence of a templating agent. The resultant microporous materials are useful in the purification of liquids ...

An improved binder for use in paper-making contains three ingredients, a cationic starch having a degree of substitution of at least 0.01, a high molecular weight anionic polymer having a molecular weight of at least 500,000 and a degree of anionic substitution of at least 0.01, and a dispersed sili ...

James H Smith Jr: Papermaking process. Nalco Chemical Company, Joan I Norek, Robert A Miller, Joseph B Barrett, June 22, 1993: US05221435 (87 worldwide citation)

In a papermaking process a paper product is formed from a mineral filler containing cellulosic slurry. Retention performance is provided by the sequential addition of a cationic charge-biasing species, an anionic flocculant, and then a certain microparticle. A shear stage is interposed between the f ...
