Side Chain Crystalline Polymer As Rheology Modifier For Crosslinked Polymer

US Patent:
6492462, Dec 10, 2002
Filed:
Dec 19, 2000
Appl. No.:
09/741530
Inventors:
Steven P. Bitler - Menlo Park CA
David D. Taft - Atherton CA
Ray F. Stewart - Redwood City CA
Assignee:
Landec Corporation - Menlo Park CA
International Classification:
C08L 5100
US Classification:
525107, 525 64, 525 65, 525 66, 525 68, 525 69, 525 74, 525 77, 525 92 R, 525 92 C, 525 92 F, 525 92 H, 525 92 K, 525117, 525118, 525119, 525120, 525121, 525122, 525123, 525132, 525142, 525143, 525144, 525145, 525149, 525168, 525169, 525170, 525182, 525183, 525184, 525199, 525200, 525208, 525218, 525221, 525227, 525240, 525241, 525263, 525293, 525305, 525403, 525404, 525405, 525407, 525408, 525409, 525410, 525411, 525412, 525414, 525420, 525423, 525424, 525425, 525426, 525429, 525438, 525440, 525442, 525444, 525445, 525446, 525 4
Abstract:
The rheological properties of a crosslinkable resin system are modified by the presence of a side chain crystalline (SCC) polymer (or a similar crystalline polymer which melts over a narrow temperature range). The polymer dissolves in the curable system at temperatures above the melting point of the crystalline polymer (T ), but when the system is then cooled to a temperature below T , at least partially forms a separate phase in the curable system. Below T , this separate phase substantially increases the viscosity of the curable system (i. e. makes it thicker than the same system without the crystalline polymer). This is particularly valuable for sheet molding composites (SMCs) in which the increase in viscosity makes the composites less tacky, and for dry film resists (DFRs). Above T , the curable system containing the dissolved crystalline polymer has a viscosity which is substantially less than its viscosity below T.

Systems And Methods For Delivery Of Drugs

US Patent:
2009026, Oct 22, 2009
Filed:
Dec 4, 2008
Appl. No.:
12/315876
Inventors:
David Taft - Atherton CA,
Steven Bitler - Menlo Park CA,
Qiang Zheng - Palo Alto CA,
Stelios Tzannis - Newark CA,
Adam Bell - San Francisco CA,
Wei-Guo Dai - Sunnyvale CA,
Sandra Ottensmann - Mountain View CA,
International Classification:
A61K 47/48
A61P 25/18
US Classification:
424 7817
Abstract:
Systems and methods for delivering drugs. Crystalline polymeric systems, referred to as CYC carriers, are associated with the drugs, through chemical bonding or through physical association. The crystallinity of the CYC carriers results from the presence of crystallizable side chains, for example long chain n-alkyl moieties, which results in relatively low and sharp melting temperatures. One class of CYC carriers, referred to as CYSC polymers, have a majority of the crystallizable side chains pendant from the polymer backbone. Another class of CYC carriers, referred to as ECC polymers, have a majority of the crystallizable side chains attached to terminal units of the polymer backbone. The ECC polymers can for example be obtained by modification of PLGA polymers. The CYC carriers in another class are non-polymeric. Some CYC carriers, referred to as CYC assemblies, have enhanced crystallinity as a result of the physical association of crystallizable moieties which are present in different types of molecule, for example between a polymer containing crystallizable moieties and a monomer containing crystallizable moieties. Preferably the CYC carrier is bioerodable.

Method Of Forming An Orthopedic Cast

US Patent:
5807291, Sep 15, 1998
Filed:
May 25, 1995
Appl. No.:
8/450407
Inventors:
Andrew W. Larson - Palo Alto CA
Steven P. Bitler - Menlo Park CA
Lawrence C. Greene - Boulder Creek CA
David D. Taft - Atherton CA
Ray F. Stewart - Redwood City CA
Valentine Y. Yoon - Redwood Shores CA
Thomas W. Ross - Los Gatos CA
David A. Kamp - Sunnyvale CA
Edward E. Schmitt - Palo Alto CA
International Classification:
A61F 500
US Classification:
602 8
Abstract:
Orthopedic casts which comprise an elastically deformed support which is held in its elastically deformed state by a solid casting composition. After the cast has been placed around a patient's limb, it is heated to soften the casting composition, thus permitting recovery of the cast into conforming contact with the limb. The support can for example be a fabric knitted from elastomeric fibers and glass fiber yarns. The casting composition can for example comprise polycaprolactone and/or a side chain crystallizable polymer, which melts at 45. degree. -60. degree. C. A padded liner can be placed between the cast and the limb. Recovery of the cast is preferably carried out by means of a hot air gun.

Controlled, Sustained Release Particles For Treating Seeds And Plants And Methods For Making The Particles

US Patent:
2013024, Sep 19, 2013
Filed:
Aug 8, 2012
Appl. No.:
13/570165
Inventors:
David D. Taft - Menlo Park CA,
Damian Hajduk - San Jose CA,
Natarajan Balachander - West Lafayette IN,
Xinhua Zong - San Jose CA,
Qiang Zheng - Palo Alto CA,
Assignee:
Landec Corporation - Menlo Park CA
International Classification:
A01N 25/26
US Classification:
424418, 514341, 424419
Abstract:
The invention relates to active particles, including core-shell particles, having low burst, controllable, sustained release which are useful for coating seeds. The active particles can also be used in sprayable and dry formulations for treating soil or plants. The particulate coating can also contain inert organic or inorganic material. The invention also relates to methods for preparing the active particles. The methods include: adding additional material to core particles to form a shell, removing active ingredient from a core surface to create an active-depleted shell, and crosslinking the outer layers of a core to form a shell.

Compositions for delivering release materials, for example drugs, agricultural materials, other bioactive materials, cosmetic materials, organic or inorganic compounds which take part in or catalyse a chemical reaction, a fragrance-emitting material for a vaporizer, or a lubricating material. The release material is associated with a crystalline carrier. The carrier may be a crystalline polymer containing a plurality of crystalline groups or a crystalline monomer which contains a single crystalline group, the crystalline group preferably comprising a straight chain polymethylene radical containing at least 16 carbon atoms. Some of the carriers are obtained by modifying hyaluronic acid, collagen, gelatin, a polysaccharide, a carbohydrate or cyclodextran. The release material may contain a similar crystalline group, for example may be an active compound which has been modified to introduce a crystalline group.
