Georgiades added that the double bond issue ensured savings in debt servicing and securing very long-term lending and facilitating debt management.
Key statement: Acido-basic properties of a system containing a polymer fragment obtained by oxidative cleavage of a carbon-carbon double bond of a diene rubber polymer and a functional molecule having in a structure thereof an alkoxysilyl group and at least one functional group selected from the group consisting of an aldehyde group and a carbonyl group are changed such that the system becomes basic when acidic, and becomes acidic when basic, thereby combining the polymer fragment with the functional molecule to form a modified diene rubber polymer having an alkoxysilyl group incorporated therein.
The chemical feature of all haloolefins is the presence of a carbon-carbon double bond. This carbon-carbon double bond, in most cases, is more reactive than saturated carbon-carbon, carbon-hydrogen, and carbon-halogen (fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine) bonds.
1H-NMR spectrum showed the characteristic signal for olefinic proton of trisubstituted double bond at I' 5.33 (1H, br.d J = 5.3 Hz) and trans disubstituted double bond in which olefinic protons resonated at I' 5.17 (1H, dd, J = 15.1 and 7.7 Hz) and 5.00 (1H, dd, J = 15.4 and 7.5 Hz).
Another story looks at the potential replacement of one of butyl rubber's carbon-carbon double bonds with a phosphorus-carbon double bond, allowing for chemical transformation of this rubber polymer.
The key components of an MA system are electron deficient C=C double bonds (e.g., an acryloyl, the acceptor), acidic C-H bonds (as present in aceto-acetate and malonate moieties, the donor), and a base catalyst strong enough to abstract the proton of this C-H bond yielding a nucleophilic carbanion that can add to the double bond.
Trans-fats are hydrogenated fatty acid that lost their double bond to become solidified and more stable to oxidation.
