unsaturated

un·sat·u·rat·ed

(ŭn-săch′ə-rā′tĭd)
1. Relating to an organic compound in which two or more of the carbon atoms are joined by a double or triple bond and therefore can be combined with additional atoms or radicals. Benzene and unsaturated fatty acids are examples of unsaturated compounds. Compare saturated, monounsaturated, polyunsaturated.
2. Relating to a solution that is capable of dissolving more solute than it already contains.

However, since vegetable oils have differences in both the type of fatty acids and their degree of unsaturations, as well as in their nonsaponifiable constituents, this can impose conditions on their final use for the development of new products [9].
Objective: The project addresses the reduction of polar unsaturations catalyzed by metal complexes under strongly basic conditions.
Particularly, PBs produced with cobalt catalysts present higher gel contents compared with other PBs because of cross-linking and reincorporation of internal unsaturations. The gel formation leads to reactor fouling and reduces the mechanical and rheological properties of the final polymer [26, 27].
Studies effected on oils revealed that the rate of autoxidation is affected by fatty acids composition, degree of unsaturations, the presence and activity of pro- and antioxidants, partial pressure of oxygen, the nature of surface being exposed to oxygen and the storage conditions (temperature, light exposure, moisture content, etc.) of oils.
(3) Although the oxidative stability of these exotic butters is higher compared to oils with high unsaturations, they are still prone to rancidity and must be handled with care.
The individual grades produced by Bayer (Butyl 100, 1013, 301,402) differ with respect to percent unsaturations (0.7 to 2.2), Mooney viscosity, and type of stabilizer system.
The distribution and concentration of unsaturation as a result of this step determines the rate of success on the next step where more chains (which have unsaturations) are incorporated into networks by thiol-ene chemistry.
The peak at 3010 [cm.sup.-1] corresponding to unsaturations is clearly observed.
Unlike the polyolefin resins, the HS-SBR resins contain some unsaturations on the polymer backbone and can be crosslinked with sulfur based curing systems.
This can be explained by the presence of some unsaturations of DAP remaining unreacted, and hence becoming an easy target for degradation.
Furthermore it is known that dehydrofluorination proceeds beyond that strictly required for cross-linking and an excess of unsaturations remains in the vulcanized product (ref.
The amounts of unsaturations (vinyls/1000 carbons, vinylidenes/1000 carbons, and trans/1000 carbons) were determined by infra-red spectroscopy.
