To confirm additional changes in biotype attributes in the variant Kolkata isolates during 2003-2014, we used the Voges-Proskauer test to determine production of acetylmethyl carbinol and found that the tested strains produced acetoin and were positive for chicken erythrocytes agglutination.
Key products within the Sun Protection program that showed superior SPF/UVAPF performance include Dow Corning[R] 5562 Carbinol Fluid, a low-viscosity fluid for sunscreens offering broad compatibility with polar and non-polar solvents; Dow Corning 556 Cosmetic Grade Fluid, a polyphenylmethylsiloxane for suntan lotions that provides non-oily, easy-to-spread emolliency and a smooth, non-sticky film that helps repel sand; and Dow Corning MQ-1640 Flake Resin, a flexible film former for sunscreens that also provides wash-off resistance.
These copolymerized silicone-alkyds are made by "cooking" silicone resin with the alkyd (in solvent) which causes SiOH groups on silicone resin to react with carbinol groups of the alkyd resin.
For the froth flotation tests, the following reagents were used: Calcium lignosulfonate (CaLS) from Aldrich; Hosta-phat (etanolic solution of alkane phosphonic acid) OPS75E, from Clariant Produkte; sodium hydroxide (NaOH) from Quimitecnica; Methyl Isobutyl Carbinol (MIBC) from CYTEC.

A reactive silicone glycol surfactant with carbinol functionality, Dow Corning 55N Additive performs well in water-based, solvent-based and UV-curable systems and is compatible with a wide range of resins, including alkyd, acrylic, epoxy and polyurethane.
The silanol (Si-OH) groups react with carbinol (C-OH) groups on the alkyd, liberating water which must be removed to drive the reaction toward completion.
The research, funded by the National Cancer Institute, looked at the role played by a key phytochemical known as Indole-3-carbinol, also called I3C or simply carbinol.
The natural chemical indole-3 carbinol, which is found in vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower can help break down excessive oestrogens in the bloodstream and transform them into the weaker, beneficial oestrogens.
