9,168,218 B2; L'Oreal has patented a composition that contains photoluminescent polymer (PLP), which is a polyester synthesized from a multifunctional monomer containing two carboxylic acid groups and a functional moiety comprising a carboxylic acid group or a hydroxyl group, and a diol.
The mercapto moieties of said dimercaptothiadiazole are desirably protected from prematurely reacting with, for example, diene-based elastomers and sulfur-containing silica coupling agents by pre-reaction with an aromatic carboxylic acid chloride or by reacting in situ with an aromatic carboxylic acid.

BASF has obtained a patent for a n aqueous coating formulation comprised of a substituted, branched polyethyleneimine, which is obtained by a process comprised of reacting a branched polyethyleneimine having a weight-average molecular weight of from 500 to 10,000 g/mol with a carboxylic acid derivative of formula (I) R--(C=0)X (I), wherein R is a C5 to C18 alkyl group or a C5 to C18 alkenyl group, X is a halogen, a hydroxyl group, or a group R--(C=0)--O--, a molar amount of the carboxylic acid derivative in the reacting is from 3 to 10 mol percent of a molar amount of ethyleneimine employed in preparing the branched polyethyleneimine, the reacting is comprised of formation and removal of a byproduct HX, and the formulation is configured to coat a substrate that is comprised of tannin.
This diluted standard is DEA-exempt, so there's no need to purchase costly neat materials or make your own standards, and it is prepared in acetonitrile, which helps maintain stability by preventing methylation of the carboxylic acid group on the molecule.
