Method for Obtaining na Extract Rich in Triterpenic Acids From Eucalyptus Barks

Processes InternationalNational

Domingues, Rui ; Barros, Carmen; Silvestre, Armando; Neto, Carlos; Silva, Carlos;

The present invention relates to a method of obtaining extracts having very high contents (up to 98%) of triterpenic acids, mainly oleanolic and ursolic acids, from Eucalyptus barks. The method involves the solid-liquid extraction of the bark with organic solvents, preferably hexane, and the fractionation of the crude extract by means o...

Method for the prediction of paraffinic deposits formation in crude oil during extraction, transport and storage

Products National

Coutinho, João ; Daridon, Jean-Luc

The present invention relates to a method to predict the formation of paraffin deposits in crude oil during extraction, transport and storage operations.Often oils contain considerable amounts of heavy n-alkanes that upon cooling or release of gases due to pressure drop, during operation or transport, tend to deposit in stor...
