FABRIC CARE COMPOSITION COMPRISING GLYCERIDE COPOLYMERS

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to fabric cleaning and/or treatment compositions as well as methods of making and using same.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Softening agents are typically used to soften fabrics. Unfortunately, the current softening agents have a number of drawbacks which include high cost, a narrow pH formulation window, less than desirable stability and/or softening performance. In an effort to alleviate such drawbacks, new softening agents continue to be developed. Unfortunately, even such newly developed softening agents continue to have one or more of such drawbacks. Applicants recognized that the aforementioned drawbacks are due to one or more of the following factors: hydrolytic instability of ester linkage which is beta to the quaternary ammonium group in the molecule causes pH intolerance, the high charge density of quaternary ammonium headgroup causes salt intolerance and/or is incompatible with anionic materials such as anionic surfactants, excessively high molecular weights of the polymeric softening agents makes them difficult to process and dispose of. Thus what is required are cleaning and/or treatment compositions that comprise a material that can serve as a softening active but does not have the same level of drawbacks as current softening actives. Applicants recognized that glyceride copolymers can serve as such a softening active and when combined with certain fabric and home care ingredients can result in synergistic performance gains.

While not being bound by theory, Applicants believe that the uncharged nature and/or the low degree of oligomerization of the glyceride copolymers result in the lack of the aforementioned drawbacks. Thus, glyceride copolymers are salt and pH tolerant as well as easier to process and dispose of, yet have a softening capability that is at least as good as that of the best current softening agents. As a result, formulations comprising such glyceride copolymers can have wide pH ranges, and/or salt levels and still be stable. In addition, the salt, anionic and/or pH tolerance of such formulations allows a number of ingredients to be employed by the formulator, including ingredients that hitherto were not available to formulators. Furthermore, synergistic performance gains are obtained, for example, when glyceride copolymers are combined with a cationic softener agent, cationic surfactant, and/or a cationic polymer there is an unexpected gain in softness performance; an unexpected increase in phase stability is obtained when glyceride copolymers are combined with anionic surfactant; an unexpected increase in deposition of glyceride copolymers is obtained when such glyceride copolymers are combined with water soluble solid carriers; an unexpected improvement in fabric whiteness is obtained from fabrics treated with compositions comprising glyceride copolymers and a brightener, a soil dispersing polymer, a hueing dye, a dye transfer inhibiting agent, and/or a detersive enzyme and mixtures thereof; finally, an unexpected gain in perfume deposition and product stability is obtained from compositions that comprise glyceride copolymers and perfumes and/or perfume delivery systems.

Applicants recognized that the problems with commercially available glyceride copolymers lay in the rheology of such materials as such rheology resulted in a range of spreading on fabrics that was insufficient with a first class of materials and excessive spreading with a second class of materials. Thus, both classes of commercially available materials exhibited insufficient lubrication. Versions of glyceride copolymers are disclosed that have the correct rheology. Such species of glyceride copolymers provide unexpectedly improved softenening performance and formulability.

Unfortunately further improvement was needed in the area of chemical stability to oxidation and enzymes and in the area of processability as the aforementioned glyceride copolymers' viscosity limited the efficiency of processes used to make fabric care products that were formulated with such glyceride copolymers. Applicants recognized that the source of the viscosity problem lay in the fatty acid chain length distribution of the glyceride copolymers. Furthermore, glyceride copolymers derived from conventional self metathesis of unsaturated polyol esters contain impurities which cause unfavorable odor in finished product. Applicants recognized that this odor was caused by short chain olefin metathesis coproducts which are difficult to remove from the glyceride copolymer derived from self metathesis of unsaturated polyol esters. Thus, Applicants solved such problem by olefinizing and metathesizing the unsaturated polyol esters to form new glyceride coplymers. Thus, reducing the fatty acid chain length but still maintaining the molecular weight that provides the desired lubricity, and also reducing the short chain olefin in the fabric care composition and eliminating the odor. Applicants disclose such improved glyceride coplymers and products containing same herein. SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to fabric cleaning and/or treatment compositions as well as methods of making and using same. Such fabric cleaning and/or treatment compositions contain species of glyceride copolymers that have the required viscosity and lubricity. Thus, such species of glyceride copolymers provide unexpectedly improved softening performance and formulability.

In other embodiments, a higher range of Cn_i 4 may be used.

As used herein, "alkyl" refers to a straight or branched chain saturated hydrocarbon having 1 to 30 carbon atoms, which may be optionally substituted, as herein further described, with multiple degrees of substitution being allowed.

As used herein, "alkenyl" refers to a straight or branched chain non-aromatic hydrocarbon having 2 to 30 carbon atoms and having one or more carbon-carbon double bonds, which may be optionally substituted, as herein further described, with multiple degrees of substitution being allowed. Examples of "alkenyl," as used herein, include, but are not limited to, ethenyl, 2- propenyl, 2-butenyl, and 3-butenyl. The number of carbon atoms in an alkenyl group is represented by the phrase "C x _ y alkenyl," which refers to an alkenyl group, as herein defined, containing from x to y, inclusive, carbon atoms. Thus, "C2-6 alkenyl" represents an alkenyl chain having from 2 to 6 carbon atoms and, for example, includes, but is not limited to, ethenyl, 2- propenyl, 2-butenyl, and 3-butenyl. In some instances, the "alkenyl" group can be divalent, in which case the group can alternatively be referred to as an "alkenylene" group.

As used herein, "direct bond" refers to an embodiment where the identified moiety is absent from the structure, and is replaced by a bond between other moieties to which it is connected. For example, if the specification or claims recite A-D-E and D is defined as a direct bond, the resulting structure is A-E.

As used herein, "substituted" refers to substitution of one or more hydrogen atoms of the designated moiety with the named substituent or substituents, multiple degrees of substitution being allowed unless otherwise stated, provided that the substitution results in a stable or chemically feasible compound. A stable compound or chemically feasible compound is one in which the chemical structure is not substantially altered when kept at a temperature from about - 80 °C to about +40 °C, in the absence of moisture or other chemically reactive conditions, for at least a week. As used herein, the phrases "substituted with one or more..." or "substituted one or more times..." refer to a number of substituents that equals from one to the maximum number of substituents possible based on the number of available bonding sites, provided that the above conditions of stability and chemical feasibility are met.

As used herein, the term "polyol" means an organic material comprising at least two hydroxy moieties. As used herein, the term "Cio-i 4 unsaturated fatty acid ester" means a fatty acid ester that comprises 10, 11, 12, 13 or 14 carbon atoms, wherein the fatty acid ester chain has at least one carbon-carbon double bond.

In some instances herein, organic compounds are described using the "line structure" methodology, where chemical bonds are indicated by a line, where the carbon atoms are not expressly labeled, and where the hydrogen atoms covalently bound to carbon (or the C-H bonds) are not shown at all. For example, by that convention, the formula represents n-propane.

In some instances herein, a squiggly bond is used to show the compound can have any one of two or more isomers. For example, the structure ^^*^ C an refer to (E)-2-butene or (Z)-2-butene. The same is true when olefinic structures are drawn that are ambiguous as to which isomer is referred to. For example, CH 3 -CH=CH-CH 3 can refer to

(E)-2-butene or (Z)-2-butene.

As used herein, the various functional groups represented will be understood to have a point of attachment at the functional group having the hyphen or dash (-) or an asterisk (*). In other words, in the case of -CH 2 CH 2 CH 3 , it will be understood that the point of attachment is the CH 2 group at the far left. If a group is recited without an asterisk or a dash, then the attachment point is indicated by the plain and ordinary meaning of the recited group.

As used herein, multi-atom bivalent species are to be read from left to right. For example, if the specification or claims recite A-D-E and D is defined as -OC(O)-, the resulting group with D replaced is: A-OC(0)-E and not A-C(0)0-E.

As used herein, the term "solid" includes granular, powder, bar, beads, pastilles and tablet product forms.

As used herein, the articles including "a" and "an" when used in a claim, are understood to mean one or more of what is claimed or described.

As used herein, the terms "include", "includes" and "including" are meant to be non- limiting.

Unless otherwise noted, all component or composition levels are in reference to the active portion of that component or composition, and are exclusive of impurities, for example, residual solvents or by-products, which may be present in commercially available sources of such components or compositions.

All percentages and ratios are calculated by weight unless otherwise indicated. All percentages and ratios are calculated based on the total composition unless otherwise indicated with the proviso that the sum of the percentage of all ingredients for a respective mixture/formula cannot exceed or be less than 100%.

It should be understood that every maximum numerical limitation given throughout this specification includes every lower numerical limitation, as if such lower numerical limitations were expressly written herein.

In some embodiments, the natural oil is refined, bleached, and/or deodorized.

Natural oils of the type described herein typically are composed of triglycerides of fatty acids. These fatty acids may be either saturated, monounsaturated or polyunsaturated and contain varying chain lengths ranging from Cs to C30. The most common fatty acids include saturated fatty acids such as lauric acid (dodecanoic acid), myristic acid (tetradecanoic acid), palmitic acid (hexadecanoic acid), stearic acid (octadecanoic acid), arachidic acid (eicosanoic acid), and lignoceric acid (tetracosanoic acid); unsaturated acids include such fatty acids as palmitoleic (a Ci 6 acid), and oleic acid (a Ci 8 acid); polyunsaturated acids include such fatty acids as linoleic acid (a di-unsaturated Ci 8 acid), linolenic acid (a tri-unsaturated Ci 8 acid), and arachidonic acid (a tetra-unsubstituted C2 0 acid). The natural oils are further comprised of esters of these fatty acids in random placement onto the three sites of the trifunctional glycerine molecule. Different natural oils will have different ratios of these fatty acids, and within a given natural oil there is a range of these acids as well depending on such factors as where a vegetable or crop is grown, maturity of the vegetable or crop, the weather during the growing season, etc. Thus, it is difficult to have a specific or unique structure for any given natural oil, but rather a structure is typically based on some statistical average. For example soybean oil contains a mixture of predominantly CI 6 and CI 8 acid groups where stearic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, and linolenic acid are in the ratio of about 15:24:50:11, and an average number of double bonds of 4.4-4.7 per triglyceride. One method of quantifying the number of double bonds is the iodine value (IV) which is defined as the number of grams of iodine that will react with 100 grams of oil. Therefore for soybean oil, the average iodine value range is from 120-140. Soybean oil may comprise about 95% by weight or greater (e.g., 99% weight or greater) triglycerides of fatty acids. Major fatty acids in the polyol esters of soybean oil include saturated fatty acids, as a non-limiting example, palmitic acid (hexadecanoic acid) and stearic acid (octadecanoic acid), and unsaturated fatty acids, as a non- limiting example, oleic acid (9-octadecenoic acid), linoleic acid (9,12octadecadienoic acid), and linolenic acid (9,12,15-octadecatrienoic acid).

In an exemplary embodiment, the vegetable oil is canola oil, for example, refined, bleached, and deodorized canola oil (i.e., RBD canola oil). Canola oil is an unsaturated polyol ester of glycerol that typically comprises about 95% weight or greater (e.g., 99% weight or greater) triglycerides of fatty acids. Major fatty acids in the polyol esters of canola oil include saturated fatty acids, for example, palmitic acid (hexadecanoic acid) and stearic acid (octadecanoic acid), and unsaturated fatty acids, for example, oleic acid (9-octadecenoic acid), linoleic acid (9,12-octadecadienoic acid), and linolenic acid (9,12,15-octadecatrienoic acid). Canola oil is a highly unsaturated vegetable oil with many of the triglyceride molecules having at least two unsaturated fatty acids (i.e., a polyunsaturated triglyceride).

In some embodiments, the unsaturated alkenylized synthetic polyol ester is formed from the reaction of an unsaturated synthetic polyol ester with a short-chain alkene in the presence of a second metathesis catalyst. In some such embodiments, the unsaturated alkenylized synthetic polyol ester has a lower molecular weight than the second unsaturated synthetic polyol ester. Any suitable short-chain alkene can be used, according to the embodiments described above. In some embodiments, the short-chain alkene is a C2-8 olefin, or a C2-6 olefin. In some such embodiments, the short-chain alkene is ethylene, propylene, 1-butene, 2-butene, isobutene, 1- pentene, 2-pentene, 1-hexene, 2-hexene, or 3-hexene. In some further such embodiments, the short-chain alkene is ethylene, propylene, 1-butene, 2-butene, or isobutene. In some

embodiments, the short-chain alkene is ethylene. In some embodiments, the short-chain alkene is propylene. In some embodiments, the short-chain alkene is 1-butene. In some embodiments, the short-chain alkene is 2-butene. In some other embodiments, the short-chain alkene is a branched short-chain alkene. Non-limiting examples of such branched short-chain alkenes include, but are not limited to, isobutylene, 3 -methyl- 1-butene, 3 -methyl- 1-pentene, and 4-methyl-l-pentene.

The unsaturated synthetic polyol ester includes esters such as those derived from ethylene glycol or propylene glycol, polyethylene glycol, polypropylene glycol, or poly(tetramethylene ether) glycol, esters such as those derived from pentaerythritol, dipentaerythritol, tripentaerythritol, trimethylolpropane, or neopentyl glycol, or sugar esters such as SEFOSE®. Sugar esters such as SEFOSE® include one or more types of sucrose polyesters, with up to eight ester groups that could undergo a metathesis exchange reaction. Sucrose polyesters are derived from a natural resource and therefore, the use of sucrose polyesters can result in a positive environmental impact. Sucrose polyesters are polyester materials, having multiple substitution positions around the sucrose backbone coupled with the chain length, saturation, and derivation variables of the fatty chains. Such sucrose polyesters can have an esterification ("IBAR") of greater than about 5. In one embodiment the sucrose polyester may have an IBAR of from about 5 to about 8. In another embodiment the sucrose polyester has an IBAR of about 5-7, and in another embodiment the sucrose polyester has an IBAR of about 6. In yet another embodiment the sucrose polyester has an IBAR of about 8. As sucrose polyesters are derived from a natural resource, a distribution in the IBAR and chain length may exist. For example a sucrose polyester having an IBAR of 6, may contain a mixture of mostly IBAR of about 6, with some IBAR of about 5 and some IBAR of about 7. Additionally, such sucrose polyesters may have an unsaturation or iodine value ("IV") of about 3 to about 140. In another embodiment the sucrose polyester may have an IV of about 10 to about 120. In yet another embodiment the sucrose polyester may have an IV of about 20 to 100. Further, such sucrose polyesters have a chain length of about C12-20 but are not limited to these chain lengths.

Derivation from Renewable Sources

The compounds employed in any of the aspects or embodiments disclosed herein can, in certain embodiments, be derived from renewable sources, such as from various natural oils or their derivatives. Any suitable methods can be used to make these compounds from such renewable sources.

Olefin metathesis provides one possible means to convert certain natural oil feedstocks into olefins and esters that can be used in a variety of applications, or that can be further modified chemically and used in a variety of applications. In some embodiments, a composition (or components of a composition) may be formed from a renewable feedstock, such as a renewable feedstock formed through metathesis reactions of natural oils and/or their fatty acid or fatty ester derivatives. When compounds containing a carbon-carbon double bond undergo metathesis reactions in the presence of a metathesis catalyst, some or all of the original carbon-carbon double bonds are broken, and new carbon-carbon double bonds are formed. The products of such metathesis reactions include carbon-carbon double bonds in different locations, which can provide unsaturated organic compounds having useful chemical properties.

A wide range of natural oils, or derivatives thereof, can be used in such metathesis reactions. Examples of suitable natural oils include, but are not limited to, vegetable oils, algae oils, fish oils, animal fats, tall oils, derivatives of these oils, combinations of any of these oils, and the like. Representative non-limiting examples of vegetable oils include low erucic acid rapeseed oil (canola oil), high erucic acid rapeseed oil, coconut oil, corn oil, cottonseed oil, olive oil, palm oil, peanut oil, safflower oil, sesame oil, soybean oil, sunflower oil, linseed oil, palm kernel oil, tung oil, jatropha oil, mustard seed oil, pennycress oil, camelina oil, hempseed oil, and castor oil. Representative non-limiting examples of animal fats include lard, tallow, poultry fat, yellow grease, and fish oil. Tall oils are by-products of wood pulp manufacture. In some embodiments, the natural oil or natural oil feedstock comprises one or more unsaturated glycerides (e.g., unsaturated triglycerides). In some such embodiments, the natural oil feedstock comprises at least 50% by weight, or at least 60% by weight, or at least 70% by weight, or at least 80% by weight, or at least 90% by weight, or at least 95% by weight, or at least 97% by weight, or at least 99% by weight of one or more unsaturated triglycerides, based on the total weight of the natural oil feedstock. The natural oil may include canola or soybean oil, such as refined, bleached and deodorized soybean oil (i.e., RBD soybean oil). Soybean oil typically includes about 95 percent by weight (wt%) or greater (e.g., 99 wt% or greater) triglycerides of fatty acids. Major fatty acids in the polyol esters of soybean oil include but are not limited to saturated fatty acids such as palmitic acid (hexadecanoic acid) and stearic acid (octadecanoic acid), and unsaturated fatty acids such as oleic acid (9-octadecenoic acid), linoleic acid (9,12-octadecadienoic acid), and linolenic acid (9,12,15-octadecatrienoic acid).

Such natural oils, or derivatives thereof, contain esters, such as triglycerides, of various unsaturated fatty acids. The identity and concentration of such fatty acids varies depending on the oil source, and, in some cases, on the variety. In some embodiments, the natural oil comprises one or more esters of oleic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, or any combination thereof. When such fatty acid esters are metathesized, new compounds are formed. For example, in embodiments where the metathesis uses certain short-chain alkenes, e.g., ethylene, propylene, or 1-butene, and where the natural oil includes esters of oleic acid, an amount of 1- decene and 1-decenoid acid (or an ester thereof), among other products, are formed.

In some embodiments, the natural oil can be subjected to various pre-treatment processes, which can facilitate their utility for use in certain metathesis reactions. Useful pre-treatment methods are described in United States Patent Application Publication Nos. 2011/0113679, 2014/0275595, and 2014/0275681, all three of which are hereby incorporated by reference as though fully set forth herein.

In certain embodiments, prior to the metathesis reaction, the natural oil and/or unsaturated polyol ester feedstock may be treated to render the natural oil more suitable for the subsequent metathesis reaction. In one embodiment, the treatment of the the natural oil and/or unsaturated polyol ester involves the removal of catalyst poisons, such as peroxides, which may potentially diminish the activity of the metathesis catalyst. Non-limiting examples of the natural oil and/or unsaturated polyol ester feedstock treatment methods to diminish catalyst poisons include those described in PCT/US2008/09604, PCT/US2008/09635, and U.S. patent application Ser. Nos. 12/672,651 and 12/672,652, herein incorporated by reference in their entireties. In certain embodiments, the the natural oil and/or unsaturated polyol ester feedstock is thermally treated by heating the feedstock to a temperature greater than 100° C. in the absence of oxygen and held at the temperature for a time sufficient to diminish catalyst poisons in the feedstock. In other embodiments, the temperature is between approximately 100° C. and 300° C, between approximately 120° C. and 250° C, between approximately 150° C. and 210° C, or approximately between 190 and 200° C. In one embodiment, the absence of oxygen is achieved by sparging the the natural oil and/or unsaturated polyol ester feedstock with nitrogen, wherein the nitrogen gas is pumped into the feedstock treatment vessel at a pressure of approximately 10 atm (150 psig).

In certain embodiments, the the natural oil and/or unsaturated polyol ester feedstock is chemically treated under conditions sufficient to diminish the catalyst poisons in the feedstock through a chemical reaction of the catalyst poisons. In certain embodiments, the feedstock is treated with a reducing agent or a cation-inorganic base composition. Non-limiting examples of reducing agents include bisulfate, borohydride, phosphine, thiosulfate, and combinations thereof.

In certain embodiments, the natural oil and/or unsaturated polyol ester feedstock is treated with an adsorbent to remove catalyst poisons. In one embodiment, the feedstock is treated with a combination of thermal and adsorbent methods. In another embodiment, the feedstock is treated with a combination of chemical and adsorbent methods. In another embodiment, the treatment involves a partial hydrogenation treatment to modify the the natural oil and/or unsaturated polyol ester feedstock's reactivity with the metathesis catalyst. Additional non-limiting examples of feedstock treatment are also described below when discussing the various metathesis catalysts.

In some embodiments, after any optional pre-treatment of the natural oil feedstock, the natural oil feedstock is reacted in the presence of a metathesis catalyst in a metathesis reactor. In some other embodiments, an unsaturated ester (e.g., an unsaturated glyceride, such as an unsaturated triglyceride) is reacted in the presence of a metathesis catalyst in a metathesis reactor. These unsaturated esters may be a component of a natural oil feedstock, or may be derived from other sources, e.g., from esters generated in earlier-performed metathesis reactions.

In some embodiments, the natural oil is winterized. Winterization refers to the process of: (1) removing waxes and other non-triglyceride constituents, (2) removing naturally occurring high- melting triglycerides, and (3) removing high- melting triglycerides formed during partial hydrogenation. Winterization may be accomplished by known methods including, for example, cooling the oil at a controlled rate in order to cause crystallization of the higher melting components that are to be removed from the oil. The crystallized high melting components are then removed from the oil by filtration resulting in winterized oil. Winterized soybean oil is commercially available from Cargill, Incorporated (Minneapolis, Minn.).

The conditions for such metathesis reactions, and the reactor design, and suitable catalysts are as described below with reference to the metathesis of the olefin esters. That discussion is incorporated by reference as though fully set forth herein. Olefin Metathesis

In some embodiments, one or more of the unsaturated monomers can be made by metathesizing a natural oil or natural oil derivative. The terms "metathesis" or "metathesizing" can refer to a variety of different reactions, including, but not limited to, cross-metathesis, self- metathesis, ring-opening metathesis, ring-opening metathesis polymerizations ("ROMP"), ring- closing metathesis ("RCM"), and acyclic diene metathesis ("ADMET"). Any suitable metathesis reaction can be used, depending on the desired product or product mixture.

In some embodiments, after any optional pre-treatment of the natural oil feedstock, the natural oil feedstock is reacted in the presence of a metathesis catalyst in a metathesis reactor. In some other embodiments, an unsaturated ester (e.g., an unsaturated glyceride, such as an unsaturated triglyceride) is reacted in the presence of a metathesis catalyst in a metathesis reactor. These unsaturated esters may be a component of a natural oil feedstock, or may be derived from other sources, e.g., from esters generated in earlier-performed metathesis reactions. In certain embodiments, in the presence of a metathesis catalyst, the natural oil or unsaturated ester can undergo a self-metathesis reaction with itself.

In some embodiments, the metathesis comprises reacting a natural oil feedstock (or another unsaturated ester) in the presence of a metathesis catalyst. In some such embodiments, the metathesis comprises reacting one or more unsaturated glycerides (e.g., unsaturated triglycerides) in the natural oil feedstock in the presence of a metathesis catalyst. In some embodiments, the unsaturated glyceride comprises one or more esters of oleic acid, linoleic acid, linoleic acid, or combinations thereof. In some other embodiments, the unsaturated glyceride is the product of the partial hydrogenation and/or the metathesis of another unsaturated glyceride (as described above).

In some embodiments, the unsaturated polyol ester is partially hydrogenated before being metathesized. For example, in some embodiments, the unsaturated polyol ester is partially hydrogenated to achieve an iodine value (IV) of about 120 or less before subjecting the partially hydrogenated polyol ester to metathesis.

The metathesis process can be conducted under any conditions adequate to produce the desired metathesis products. For example, stoichiometry, atmosphere, solvent, temperature, and pressure can be selected by one skilled in the art to produce a desired product and to minimize undesirable byproducts. In some embodiments, the metathesis process may be conducted under an inert atmosphere. Similarly, in embodiments where a reagent is supplied as a gas, an inert gaseous diluent can be used in the gas stream. In such embodiments, the inert atmosphere or inert gaseous diluent typically is an inert gas, meaning that the gas does not interact with the metathesis catalyst to impede catalysis to a substantial degree. For example, non-limiting examples of inert gases include helium, neon, argon, methane, and nitrogen, used individually or with each other and other inert gases.

The rector design for the metathesis reaction can vary depending on a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, the scale of the reaction, the reaction conditions (heat, pressure, etc.), the identity of the catalyst, the identity of the materials being reacted in the reactor, and the nature of the feedstock being employed. Suitable reactors can be designed by those of skill in the art, depending on the relevant factors, and incorporated into a refining process such, such as those disclosed herein.

The metathesis reactions disclosed herein generally occur in the presence of one or more metathesis catalysts. Such methods can employ any suitable metathesis catalyst. The metathesis catalyst in this reaction may include any catalyst or catalyst system that catalyzes a metathesis reaction. Any known or future developed metathesis catalyst may be used, alone or in combination with one or more additional catalysts. Examples of metathesis catalysts and process conditions are described in US 2011/0160472, incorporated by reference herein in its entirety, except that in the event of any inconsistent disclosure or definition from the present specification, the disclosure or definition herein shall be deemed to prevail.

These include first and second-generation Grubbs catalysts, Grubbs-Hoveyda catalysts, and the like. Suitable

M [X 'X 2 !/ 1 L 2 (L 3 ) J < w ^CiR ! )R 2 alkylidene catalysts have the general structure:

where M is a Group 8 transition metal, L 1 , L 2 , and L 3 are neutral electron donor ligands, n is 0 (such that L 3 may not be present) or 1, m is 0,1, or 2, X 1 and X 2 are anionic ligands, and R 1 and R 2 are independently selected from H, hydrocarbyl, substituted hydrocarbyl, heteroatom- containing hydrocarbyl, substituted heteroatom-containing hydrocarbyl, and functional groups. Any two or more of X 1 , X 2 , L 1 , L 2 , L 3 , R 1 and R 2 can form a cyclic group and any one of those groups can be attached to a support. First-generation Grubbs catalysts fall into this category where m=n=0 and particular selections are made for n, X 1 , X 2 , L 1 , L 2 , L 3 , R 1 and R 2 as described in U.S. Pat. Appl. Publ. No. 2010/0145086, the teachings of which related to all metathesis catalysts are incorporated herein by reference.

Second-generation Grubbs catalysts also have the general formula described above, but

L 1 is a carbene ligand where the carbene carbon is flanked by N, O, S, or P atoms, preferably by two N atoms. Usually, the carbene ligand is part of a cyclic group. Examples of suitable second- generation Grubbs catalysts also appear in the '086 publication.

In another class of suitable alkylidene catalysts, L 1 is a strongly coordinating neutral electron donor as in first-and second-generation Grubbs catalysts, and L 2 and L 3 are weakly coordinating neutral electron donor ligands in the form of optionally substituted heterocyclic groups. Thus, L 2 and L 3 are pyridine, pyrimidine, pyrrole, quinoline, thiophene, or the like.

In yet another class of suitable alkylidene catalysts, a pair of substituents is used to form a bi- or tridentate ligand, such as a biphosphine, dialkoxide, or alkyldiketonate. Grubbs-Hoveyda catalysts are a subset of this type of catalyst in which L 2 and R 2 are linked. Typically, a neutral oxygen or nitrogen coordinates to the metal while also being bonded to a carbon that is α-, β-, or γ- with respect to the carbene carbon to provide the bidentate ligand. Examples of suitable Grubbs-Hoveyda catalysts appear in the '086 publication.

The structures below provide just a few illustrations of suitable catalysts that may be used:

An immobilized catalyst can be used for the metathesis process. An immobilized catalyst is a system comprising a catalyst and a support, the catalyst associated with the support. Exemplary associations between the catalyst and the support may occur by way of chemical bonds or weak interactions (e.g. hydrogen bonds, donor acceptor interactions) between the catalyst, or any portions thereof, and the support or any portions thereof. Support is intended to include any material suitable to support the catalyst. Typically, immobilized catalysts are solid phase catalysts that act on liquid or gas phase reactants and products. Exemplary supports are polymers, silica or alumina. Such an immobilized catalyst may be used in a flow process. An immobilized catalyst can simplify purification of products and recovery of the catalyst so that recycling the catalyst may be more convenient.

Any useful amount of the selected metathesis catalyst can be used in the process. For example, the molar ratio of the unsaturated polyol ester to catalyst may range from about 5:1 to about 10,000,000:1 or from about 50: 1 to 500,000:1. In some embodiments, an amount of about 1 to about 20 ppm, or about 2 ppm to about 15 ppm, of the metathesis catalyst per double bond of the starting composition (i.e., on a mole/mole basis) is used.

In some embodiments, the metathesis reaction is catalyzed by a system containing both a transition and a non-transition metal component. The most active and largest number of catalyst systems are derived from Group 6 and Group 8 transition metals, for example, tungsten, molybdenum, and ruthenium.

In certain embodiments, the metathesis catalyst is dissolved in a solvent prior to conducting the metathesis reaction. In certain such embodiments, the solvent chosen may be selected to be substantially inert with respect to the metathesis catalyst. For example, substantially inert solvents include, without limitation: aromatic hydrocarbons, such as benzene, toluene, xylenes, etc.; halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons, such as chlorobenzene and dichlorobenzene; aliphatic solvents, including pentane, hexane, heptane, cyclohexane, etc.; and chlorinated alkanes, such as dichloromethane, chloroform, dichloroethane, etc. In some embodiments, the solvent comprises toluene.

In other embodiments, the metathesis catalyst is not dissolved in a solvent prior to conducting the metathesis reaction. The catalyst, instead, for example, can be slurried with the natural oil or unsaturated ester, where the natural oil or unsaturated ester is in a liquid state. Under these conditions, it is possible to eliminate the solvent (e.g., toluene) from the process and eliminate downstream olefin losses when separating the solvent. In other embodiments, the metathesis catalyst may be added in solid state form (and not slurried) to the natural oil or unsaturated ester (e.g., as an auger feed).

In certain embodiments, a ligand may be added to the metathesis reaction mixture. In many embodiments using a ligand, the ligand is selected to be a molecule that stabilizes the catalyst, and may thus provide an increased turnover number for the catalyst. In some cases the ligand can alter reaction selectivity and product distribution. Examples of ligands that can be used include Lewis base ligands, such as, without limitation, trialkylphosphines, for example tricyclohexylphosphine and tributyl phosphine; triarylphosphines, such as triphenylphosphine; diarylalkylphosphines, such as, diphenylcyclohexylphosphine; pyridines, such as 2,6- dimethylpyridine, 2,4,6-trimethylpyridine; as well as other Lewis basic ligands, such as phosphine oxides and phosphinites. Additives may also be present during metathesis that increase catalyst lifetime.

The metathesis reaction temperature may, in some instances, be a rate-controlling variable where the temperature is selected to provide a desired product at an acceptable rate. In certain embodiments, the metathesis reaction temperature is greater than about -40 °C, or greater than about -20 °C, or greater than about 0 °C, or greater than about 10 °C. In certain embodiments, the metathesis reaction temperature is less than about 200 °C, or less than about 150 °C, or less than about 120 °C. In some embodiments, the metathesis reaction temperature is between about 0 °C and about 150 °C, or is between about 10°C and about 120°C. The metathesis reaction can be run under any desired pressure. Typically, it will be desirable to maintain a total pressure that is high enough to keep the cross-metathesis reagent in solution. Therefore, as the molecular weight of the cross-metathesis reagent increases, the lower pressure range typically decreases since the boiling point of the cross-metathesis reagent increases. The total pressure may be selected to be greater than about 0.1 atm (10 kPa), in some embodiments greater than about 0.3 atm (30 kPa), or greater than about 1 atm (100 kPa). Typically, the reaction pressure is no more than about 70 atm (7000 kPa), in some embodiments no more than about 30 atm (3000 kPa). A non-limiting exemplary pressure range for the metathesis reaction is from about 1 atm (100 kPa) to about 30 atm (3000 kPa). In certain embodiments it may be desirable to run the metathesis reactions under an atmosphere of reduced pressure. Conditions of reduced pressure or vacuum may be used to remove olefins as they are generated in a metathesis reaction, thereby driving the metathesis equilibrium towards the formation of less volatile products. In the case of a self-metathesis of a natural oil, reduced pressure can be used to remove Ci 2 or lighter olefins including, but not limited to, hexene, nonene, and dodecene, as well as byproducts including, but not limited to cyclohexadiene and benzene as the metathesis reaction proceeds. The removal of these species can be used as a means to drive the reaction towards the formation of diester groups and cross linked triglycerides.

In some embodiments, after metathesis has occurred, the metathesis catalyst is removed from the resulting product. One method of removing the catalyst is treatment of the metathesized product with an adsorbent bed. Representative adsorbents for use in accordance with the present teachings include but are not limited to carbon, silica, silica-alumina, alumina, clay, magnesium silicates (e.g., Magnesols), the synthetic silica adsorbent sold under the tradename TRISYL by W. R. Grace & Co., diatomaceous earth, polystyrene, macroporous (MP) resins, and the like, and combinations thereof. In one embodiment, the adsorbent is a clay bed. The clay bed will adsorb the metathesis catalyst, and after a filtration step, the metathesized product can be sent to a separation unit for further processing. The separation unit may comprise a distillation unit. In some embodiments, the distillation may be conducted, for example, by steam stripping the metathesized product. Distilling may be accomplished by sparging the mixture in a vessel, typically agitated, by contacting the mixture with a gaseous stream in acolumn that may contain typical distillation packing (e.g., random or structured), by vacuum distillation, or evaporating the lights in an evaporator such as a wiped film evaporator. Typically, steam stripping will be conducted at reduced pressure and at temperatures ranging from about 100° C. to 250°C. The temperature may depend, for example, on the level of vacuum used, with higher vacuum allowing for a lower temperature and allowing for a more efficient and complete separation of volatiles.

In another embodiment, the adsorbent is a water soluble phosphine reagent such as tris hydroxymethyl phosphine (THMP). THMP may be added at a rate equivalent to at least 1: 1, 5:1, 10:1, 25: 1, or 50:1 molar ratio relative to the catalyst. Catalyst may be separated with a water soluble phosphine through known liquid-liquid extraction mechanisms by decanting the aqueous phase from the organic phase. In other embodiments, the catalyst separation comprises washing or extracting the mixture with a polar solvent (e.g., particularly, though not exclusively, for embodiments in which the reagent is at least partially soluble in the polar solvent). Representative polar solvents for use in accordance with the present teachings include but are not limited to water, alcohols (e.g., methanol, ethanol, etc.), ethylene glycol, glycerol, DMF, multifunctional polar compounds including but not limited to polyethylene glycols and/or glymes, ionic liquids, and the like, and combinations thereof. In some embodiments, the mixture is extracted with water. In some embodiments, when a phosphite ester that is at least partially hydrolyzable (e.g., in some embodiments, a phosphite ester having a low molecular weight, including but not limited to trimethyl phosphite, triethyl phosphite, and a combination thereof) is used as a reagent, washing the mixture with water may convert the phosphite ester into a corresponding acid. In other embodiments, the metathesized product may be contacted with a reactant to deactivate or to extract the catalyst.

The metathesis reaction also results in the formation of internal olefin compounds that may be linear or cyclic. If the metathesized polyol ester is fully or partially hydrogenated, the linear and cyclic olefins would typically be fully or partially converted to the corresponding saturated linear and cyclic hydrocarbons. The linear/cyclic olefins and saturated linear/cyclic hydrocarbons may remain in the metathesized polyol ester or they may be removed or partially removed from the metathesized polyol ester using one or more known stripping techniques, including but not limited to wipe film evaporation, falling film evaporation, rotary evaporation, steam stripping, vacuum distillation, etc.

Multiple, sequential metathesis reaction steps may be employed. For example, the glyceride copolymer product may be made by reacting an unsaturated polyol ester in the presence of a metathesis catalyst to form a first glyceride copolymer product. The first glyceride copolymer product may then be reacted in a self-metathesis reaction to form another glyceride copolymer product. Alternatively, the first glyceride copolymer product may be reacted in a cross-metathesis reaction with a unsaturated polyol ester to form another glyceride copolymer product. Also in the alternative, the transesterified products, the olefins and/or esters may be further metathesized in the presence of a metathesis catalyst. Such multiple and/or sequential metathesis reactions can be performed as many times as needed, and at least one or more times, depending on the processing/compositional requirements as understood by a person skilled in the art. As used herein, a "glyceride copolymer product" may include products that have been once metathesized and/or multiply metathesized. These procedures may be used to form metathesis dimers, metathesis trimers, metathesis tetramers, metathesis pentamers, and higher order metathesis oligomers (e.g., metathesis hexamers, metathesis heptamers, metathesis octamers, metathesis nonamers, metathesis decamers, and higher than metathesis decamers). These procedures can be repeated as many times as desired (for example, from 2 to about 50 times, or from 2 to about 30 times, or from 2 to about 10 times, or from 2 to about 5 times, or from 2 to about 4 times, or 2 or 3 times) to provide the desired metathesis oligomer or polymer which may comprise, for example, from 2 to about 100 bonded groups, or from 2 to about 50, or from 2 to about 30, or from 2 to about 10, or from 2 to about 8, or from 2 to about 6 bonded groups, or from 2 to about 4 bonded groups, or from 2 to about 3 bonded groups. In certain embodiments, it may be desirable to use the glyceride copolymer products produced by cross metathesis of an unsaturated polyol ester, or blend of unsaturated polyol esters, with a C 2- i 4 olefin, preferably C2-6 olefin, more preferably C 4 olefin, and mixtures and isomers thereof, as the reactant in a self- metathesis reaction to produce another glyceride copolymer product. Alternatively, metathesized products produced by cross metathesis of an unsaturated polyol ester, or blend of unsaturated polyol esters, with a C 2- i 4 olefin, preferably C2-6 olefin, more preferably C 4 olefin, and mixtures and isomers thereof, can be combined with an unsaturated polyol ester, or blend of unsaturated polyol esters, and further metathesized to produce another glyceride copolymer product.

In some embodiments, the glyceride copolymer may be hydrogenated (e.g., fully or partially hydrogenated) in order to improve the stability of the oil or to modify its viscosity or other properties. Representative techniques for hydrogenating unsaturated polyol esters are known in the art and are discussed herein.

In other embodiments, the glyceride copolymers can be used as a blend with one or more fabric care benefit agents and/or fabric softening actives.

Hydro genation:

In some embodiments, the unsaturated polyol ester is partially hydrogenated before it is subjected to the metathesis reaction. Partial hydrogenation of the unsaturated polyol ester reduces the number of double bonds that are available for in the subsequent metathesis reaction. In some embodiments, the unsaturated polyol ester is metathesized to form a glyceride copolymer, and the glyceride copolymer is then hydrogenated (e.g., partially or fully hydrogenated) to form a hydrogenated glyceride copolymer.

Hydrogenation may be conducted according to any known method for hydrogenating double bond-containing compounds such as vegetable oils. In some embodiments, the unsaturated polyol ester, natural oil or glyceride copolymer is hydrogenated in the presence of a nickel catalyst that has been chemically reduced with hydrogen to an active state. Commercial examples of supported nickel hydrogenation catalysts include those available under the trade designations "NYSOFACT", "NYSOSEL", and "NI 5248 D" (from Englehard Corporation, Iselin, N.H.). Additional supported nickel hydrogenation catalysts include those commercially available under the trade designations "PRICAT 9910", "PRICAT 9920", "PRICAT 9908", "PRICAT 9936" (from Johnson Matthey Catalysts, Ward Hill, Mass.).

In some embodiments, the hydrogenation catalyst comprising, for example, nickel, copper, palladium, platinum, molybdenum, iron, ruthenium, osmium, rhodium, or iridium. Combinations of metals may also be used. Useful catalyst may be heterogeneous or homogeneous. In some embodiments, the catalysts are supported nickel or sponge nickel type catalysts.

In some embodiments, the hydrogenation catalyst comprises nickel that has been chemically reduced with hydrogen to an active state (i.e., reduced nickel) provided on a support. In some embodiments, the support comprises porous silica (e.g., kieselguhr, infusorial, diatomaceous, or siliceous earth) or alumina. The catalysts are characterized by a high nickel surface area per gram of nickel.

In some embodiments, the particles of supported nickel catalyst are dispersed in a protective medium comprising hardened triacylglyceride, edible oil, or tallow. In an exemplary embodiment, the supported nickel catalyst is dispersed in the protective medium at a level of about 22 wt. % nickel.

Hydrogenation may be carried out in a batch or in a continuous process and may be partial hydrogenation or complete hydrogenation. In a representative batch process, a vacuum is pulled on the headspace of a stirred reaction vessel and the reaction vessel is charged with the material to be hydrogenated (e.g., RBD soybean oil or metathesized RBD soybean oil). The material is then heated to a desired temperature. Typically, the temperature ranges from about 50 deg. C. to 350 deg. C, for example, about 100 deg. C. to 300 deg. C. or about 150 deg. C. to 250 deg. C. The desired temperature may vary, for example, with hydrogen gas pressure. Typically, a higher gas pressure will require a lower temperature. In a separate container, the hydrogenation catalyst is weighed into a mixing vessel and is slurried in a small amount of the material to be hydrogenated (e.g., RBD soybean oil or metathesized RBD soybean oil). When the material to be hydrogenated reaches the desired temperature, the slurry of hydrogenation catalyst is added to the reaction vessel. Hydrogen gas is then pumped into the reaction vessel to achieve a desired pressure of ¾ gas. Typically, the ¾ gas pressure ranges from about 15 to 3000 psig or, for example, about 15 psig to 150 psig. As the gas pressure increases, more specialized high-pressure processing equipment may be required. Under these conditions the hydrogenation reaction begins and the temperature is allowed to increase to the desired hydrogenation temperature (e.g., about 120 deg. C. to 200 deg. C.) where it is maintained by cooling the reaction mass, for example, with cooling coils. When the desired degree of hydrogenation is reached, the reaction mass is cooled to the desired filtration temperature.

The amount of hydrogenation catalysts is typically selected in view of a number of factors including, for example, the type of hydrogenation catalyst used, the amount of hydrogenation catalyst used, the degree of unsaturation in the material to be hydrogenated, the desired rate of hydrogenation, the desired degree of hydrogenation (e.g., as measure by iodine value (IV)), the purity of the reagent, and the ¾ gas pressure. In some embodiments, the hydrogenation catalyst is used in an amount of about 10 wt. % or less, for example, about 5 wt. % or less or about 1 wt. % or less.

After hydrogenation, the hydrogenation catalyst may be removed from the hydrogenated product using known techniques, for example, by filtration. In some embodiments, the hydrogenation catalyst is removed using a plate and frame filter such as those commercially available from Sparkler Filters, Inc., Conroe Tex. In some embodiments, the filtration is performed with the assistance of pressure or a vacuum. In order to improve filtering performance, a filter aid may be used. A filter aid may be added to the metathesized product directly or it may be applied to the filter. Representative examples of filtering aids include diatomaceous earth, silica, alumina, and carbon. Typically, the filtering aid is used in an amount of about 10 wt. % or less, for example, about 5 wt. % or less or about 1 wt. % or less. Other filtering techniques and filtering aids may also be employed to remove the used hydrogenation catalyst. In other embodiments the hydrogenation catalyst is removed using centrifugation followed by decantation of the product.

Delivery Enhancing Agent: The compositions may comprise from about 0.01% to about 10% of the composition of a delivery enhancing agent. As used herein, such term refers to any polymer or combination of polymers that significantly enhance the deposition of the fabric care benefit agent onto the fabric during laundering. Preferably, delivery enhancing agent may be a cationic or amphoteric polymer. The cationic charge density of the polymer ranges from about 0.05 milliequivalents/g to about 23 milliequivalents/g. The charge density may be calculated by dividing the number of net charge per repeating unit by the molecular weight of the repeating unit. In one aspect, the charge density varies from about 0.05 milliequivalents/g to about 8 milliequivalents/g. The positive charges could be on the backbone of the polymers or the side chains of polymers. For polymers with amine monomers, the charge density depends on the pH of the carrier. For these polymers, charge density may be measured at a pH of 7. Non-limiting examples of deposition enhancing agents are cationic or amphoteric, polysaccharides, proteins and synthetic polymers. Cationic polysaccharides include cationic cellulose derivatives, cationic guar gum derivatives, chitosan and derivatives and cationic starches.

One embodiment of the composition of the present invention contains organosilicone emulsions, which comprise organosilicones dispersed in a suitable carrier (typically water) in the presence of an emulsifier (typically an anionic surfactant). In another embodiment, the organosilicones are in the form of microemulsions. The organosilicone microemulsions may have an average particle size in the range from about 1 nm to about 150 nm, or from about 10 nm to about 100 nm, or from about 20 nm to about 50 nm. Microemulsions are more stable than conventional macroemulsions (average particle size about 1-20 microns) and when incorporated into a product, the resulting product has a preferred clear appearance. More importantly, when the composition is used in a typical aqueous wash environment, the emulsifiers in the composition become diluted such that the microemulsions can no longer be maintained and the organosilicones coalesce to form significantly larger droplets which have an average particle size of greater than about 1 micron. Since the selected organosilicones are water insoluble or have limited solubility in water, they will crash out of the wash liquor, resulting in more efficient deposition onto the fabrics and enhanced fabric care benefits. In a typical immersive wash environment, the composition is mixed with an excess of water to form a wash liquor, which typically has a weight ratio of water:composition ranging from 10: 1 to 400: 1.

A typical embodiment of the composition comprising from about 0.01% to about 10%, by weight of composition of the organosilicones and an effective amount of an emulsifier in a carrier. The "effective amount" of emulsifier is the amount sufficient to produce an organosilicone microemulsion in the carrier, preferably water. In some embodiments, the amount of emulsifiers ranges from about 5 to about 75 parts, or from about 25 to about 60 parts per 100 weight parts organosilicone.

The microemulsion typically comprises from about 10 to about 70%, or from about 25 to about 60%, by weight of the microemulsion of the dispersed organosilicones; from about 0.1 to about 30%, or from about 1 to about 20%, by weight of the microemulsion of anionic surfactant; optionally, from about 0 to about 3%, or from about 0.1 to about 20%, by weight of the microemulsion of nonionic surfactant; and the balance being water, and optionally other carriers. Selected organosilicone polymers (all those disclosed herein above, excluding PDMS and cationic silicones) are suitable for forming microemulsions; these organosilicones are sometimes referred to as the "self emulsifying silicones". Emulsifiers, particularly anionic surfactants, may be added to aid the formation of organosilicone microemulsions in the composition. Optionally, nonionic surfactants useful as laundry adjuncts to provide detersive benefits can also aid the formation and stability of the microemulsions. In a typical embodiment, the amount of emulsifiers is from about 0.05% to about 15% by weight of the composition.

The pro-perfumes may exhibit varying release rates depending upon the pro-perfume chosen.

Perfume Delivery Systems

As disclosed, the benefits of the perfumes disclosed herein may be further enhanced by employing a perfume delivery system to apply such perfumes. Non- limiting examples of suitable perfume delivery systems, methods of making perfume delivery systems and the uses of such perfume delivery systems are disclosed in USPA 2007/0275866 Al. Such perfume delivery systems include:

Polymer Assisted Delivery (PAD): This perfume delivery technology uses polymeric materials to deliver perfume materials. Classical coacervation, water soluble or partly soluble to insoluble charged or neutral polymers, liquid crystals, hot melts, hydrogels, perfumed plastics, microcapsules, nano- and micro-latexes, polymeric film formers, and polymeric absorbents, polymeric adsorbents, etc. are some examples. PAD includes but is not limited to:

Matrix Systems: The fragrance is dissolved or dispersed in a polymer matrix or particle.

Perfumes, for example, may be 1) dispersed into the polymer prior to formulating into the product or 2) added separately from the polymer during or after formulation of the product. Diffusion of perfume from the polymer is a common trigger that allows or increases the rate of perfume release from a polymeric matrix system that is deposited or applied to the desired surface (situs), although many other triggers are known that may control perfume release. Absorption and/or adsorption into or onto polymeric particles, films, solutions, and the like are aspects of this technology. Nano- or micro-particles composed of organic materials (e.g., latexes) are examples. Suitable particles include a wide range of materials including, but not limited to polyacetal, polyacrylate, polyacrylic, polyacrylonitrile, polyamide, polyaryletherketone, polybutadiene, polybutylene, polybutylene terephthalate, polychloroprene, polyethylene, polyethylene terephthalate, polycyclohexylene dimethylene terephthalate, polycarbonate, polychloroprene, polyhydroxyalkanoate, polyketone, polyester, polyetherimide, poly ethersulf one, polyethylenechlorinates, polyimide, polyisoprene, polylactic acid, polymethylpentene, polyphenylene oxide, polyphenylene sulfide, polyphthalamide, polypropylene, polystyrene, polysulfone, polyvinyl acetate, polyvinyl chloride, as well as polymers or copolymers based on acrylonitrile-butadiene, cellulose acetate, ethylene-vinyl acetate, ethylene vinyl alcohol, styrene-butadiene, vinyl acetate-ethylene, and mixtures thereof.

"Standard" systems refer to those that are "pre-loaded" with the intent of keeping the pre- loaded perfume associated with the polymer until the moment or moments of perfume release. Such polymers may also suppress the neat product odor and provide a bloom and/or longevity benefit depending on the rate of perfume release. One challenge with such systems is to achieve the ideal balance between 1) in-product stability (keeping perfume inside carrier until you need it) and 2) timely release (during use or from dry situs). Achieving such stability is particularly important during in-product storage and product aging. This challenge is particularly apparent for aqueous-based, surfactant-containing products, such as heavy duty liquid laundry detergents. Many "Standard" matrix systems available effectively become "Equilibrium" systems when formulated into aqueous-based products. One may select an "Equilibrium" system or a Reservoir system, which has acceptable in-product diffusion stability and available triggers for release (e.g., friction). "Equilibrium" systems are those in which the perfume and polymer may be added separately to the product, and the equilibrium interaction between perfume and polymer leads to a benefit at one or more consumer touch points (versus a free perfume control that has no polymer-assisted delivery technology). The polymer may also be pre-loaded with perfume; however, part or all of the perfume may diffuse during in-product storage reaching an equilibrium that includes having desired perfume raw materials (PRMs) associated with the polymer. The polymer then carries the perfume to the surface, and releases it typically via perfume diffusion. The use of such equilibrium system polymers has the potential to decrease the odor intensity of the neat product (usually more so in the case of pre-loaded standard systems). Deposition of such polymers may serve to "flatten" the release profile and provide increased longevity. As indicated above, such longevity would be achieved by suppressing the initial intensity and may enable the formulator to use more high impact or low odor detection threshold (ODT) or low Kovats Index (KI) PRMs to achieve FMOT benefits without initial intensity that is too strong or distorted. It is important that perfume release occurs within the time frame of the application to impact the desired consumer touch point or touch points. Matrix systems also include hot melt adhesives and perfume plastics. In addition, hydrophobically modified polysaccharides may be formulated into the perfumed product to increase perfume deposition and/or modify perfume release. All such matrix systems, including for example polysaccarides and nanolatexes may be combined with other PDTs, including other PAD systems such as PAD reservoir systems in the form of a perfume microcapsule (PMC).

Silicones are also examples of polymers that may be used as PDT, and can provide perfume benefits in a manner similar to the polymer-assisted delivery "matrix system". Such a PDT is referred to as silicone-assisted delivery (SAD). One may pre-load silicones with perfume, or use them as an equilibrium system as described for PAD. Examples of silicones include polydimethylsiloxane and polyalkyldimethylsiloxanes. Other examples include those with amine functionality, which may be used to provide benefits associated with amine-assisted delivery (AAD) and/or polymer-assisted delivery (PAD) and/or amine -reaction products (ARP). Reservoir Systems: Reservoir systems are also known as a core-shell type technology, or one in which the fragrance is surrounded by a perfume release controlling membrane, which may serve as a protective shell. The material inside the microcapsule is referred to as the core, internal phase, or fill, whereas the wall is sometimes called a shell, coating, or membrane. Microparticles or pressure sensitive capsules or microcapsules are examples of this technology. Microcapsules of the current invention are formed by a variety of procedures that include, but are not limited to, coating, extrusion, spray-drying, interfacial, in-situ and matrix polymerization. The possible shell materials vary widely in their stability toward water. Among the most stable are polyoxymethyleneurea (PMU)-based materials, which may hold certain PRMs for even long periods of time in aqueous solution (or product). Such systems include but are not limited to urea-formaldehyde and/or melamine-formaldehyde. Gelatin-based microcapsules may be prepared so that they dissolve quickly or slowly in water, depending for example on the degree of cross-linking. Many other capsule wall materials are available and vary in the degree of perfume diffusion stability observed. Without wishing to be bound by theory, the rate of release of perfume from a capsule, for example, once deposited on a surface is typically in reverse order of in-product perfume diffusion stability. As such, urea-formaldehyde and melamine-formaldehyde microcapsules for example, typically require a release mechanism other than, or in addition to, diffusion for release, such as mechanical force (e.g., friction, pressure, shear stress) that serves to break the capsule and increase the rate of perfume (fragrance) release. Other triggers include melting, dissolution, hydrolysis or other chemical reaction, electromagnetic radiation, and the like. The use of pre-loaded microcapsules requires the proper ratio of in-product stability and in- use and/or on-surface (on-situs) release, as well as proper selection of PRMs. Microcapsules that are based on urea-formaldehyde and/or melamine-formaldehyde are relatively stable, especially in near neutral aqueous-based solutions. These materials may require a friction trigger which may not be applicable to all product applications. Other microcapsule materials (e.g., gelatin) may be unstable in aqueous-based products and may even provide reduced benefit (versus free perfume control) when in-product aged. Scratch and sniff technologies are yet another example of PAD.

In one aspect, said perfume delivery technology may comprise encapsulated perfume such as encapsulated perfume formed by at least partially surrounding a benefit agent with a wall material. Said benefit agent may include materials selected from the group consisting of perfumes such as 3-(4-t-butylphenyl)-2-methyl propanal, 3-(4-t-butylphenyl)-propanal, 3-(4- isopropylphenyl)-2-methylpropanal, 3-(3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)-2-methylpropanal, and 2,6- dimethyl-5-heptenal, a-damascone, β-damascone, δ-damascone, β-damascenone, 6,7-dihydro- l,l,2,3,3-pentamethyl-4(5H)-indanone, methyl-7,3-dihydro-2H-l,5-benzodioxepine-3-one, 2-[2- (4-methyl-3-cyclohexenyl-l-yl)propyl]cyclopentan-2-one, 2-sec-butylcyclohexanone, and β- dihydro ionone, linalool, ethyllinalool, tetrahydrolinalool, and dihydromyrcenol. Suitable perfume materials can be obtained from Givaudan Corp. of Mount Olive, New Jersey, USA, International Flavors & Fragrances Corp. of South Brunswick, New Jersey, USA, or Quest Corp. of Naarden, Netherlands. In one aspect, the microcapsule wall material may comprise: melamine, polyacrylamide, silicones, silica, polystyrene, polyurea, polyurethanes, polyacrylate based materials, gelatin, styrene malic anhydride, polyamides, and mixtures thereof. In one aspect, said melamine wall material may comprise melamine crosslinked with formaldehyde, melamine-dimethoxyethanol crosslinked with formaldehyde, and mixtures thereof. In one aspect, said polystyrene wall material may comprise polyestyrene cross-linked with divinylbenzene. In one aspect, said polyurea wall material may comprise urea crosslinked with formaldehyde, urea crosslinked with gluteraldehyde, and mixtures thereof. In one aspect, said polyacrylate based materials may comprise polyacrylate formed from methylmethacrylate/dimethylaminomethyl methacrylate, polyacrylate formed from amine acrylate and/or methacrylate and strong acid, polyacrylate formed from carboxylic acid acrylate and/or methacrylate monomer and strong base, polyacrylate formed from an amine acrylate and/or methacrylate monomer and a carboxylic acid acrylate and/or carboxylic acid methacrylate monomer, and mixtures thereof. In one aspect, the encapsulated perfume may be coated with a deposition aid, a cationic polymer, a non-ionic polymer, an anionic polymer, or mixtures thereof. Suitable polymers may be selected from the group consisting of: polyvinylformaldehyde, partially hydroxylated polyvinylformaldehyde, polyvinylamine, polyethyleneimine, ethoxylated polyethyleneimine, polyvinylalcohol, polyacrylates, and combinations thereof. In one aspect, one or more types of encapsulated perfumes, for example two types of encapsulated perfumes each having a different benefit agent, and/or processing parameters may be used.

Molecule- Assisted Delivery (MAD): Non-polymer materials or molecules may also serve to improve the delivery of perfume. Without wishing to be bound by theory, perfume may non-covalently interact with organic materials, resulting in altered deposition and/or release. Non-limiting examples of such organic materials include but are not limited to hydrophobic materials such as organic oils, waxes, mineral oils, petrolatum, fatty acids or esters, sugars, surfactants, liposomes and even other perfume raw material (perfume oils), as well as natural oils, including body and/or other soils. Perfume fixatives are yet another example. In one aspect, non-polymeric materials or molecules have a CLogP greater than about 2.

Cyclodextrin (CD): This technology approach uses a cyclic oligosaccharide or cyclodextrin to improve the delivery of perfume. Typically a perfume and cyclodextrin (CD) complex is formed. Such complexes may be preformed, formed in-situ, or formed on or in the situs. Without wishing to be bound by theory, loss of water may serve to shift the equilibrium toward the CD-Perfume complex, especially if other adjunct ingredients (e.g., surfactant) are not present at high concentration to compete with the perfume for the cyclodextrin cavity. A bloom benefit may be achieved if water exposure or an increase in moisture content occurs at a later time point. In addition, cyclodextrin allows the perfume formulator increased flexibility in selection of PRMs. Cyclodextrin may be pre-loaded with perfume or added separately from perfume to obtain the desired perfume stability, deposition or release benefit.

Starch Encapsulated Accord (SEA): The use of a starch encapsulated accord (SEA) technology allows one to modify the properties of the perfume, for example, by converting a liquid perfume into a solid by adding ingredients such as starch. The benefit includes increased perfume retention during product storage, especially under non-aqueous conditions. Upon exposure to moisture, a perfume bloom may be triggered. Benefits at other moments of truth may also be achieved because the starch allows the product formulator to select PRMs or PRM concentrations that normally cannot be used without the presence of SEA. Another technology example includes the use of other organic and inorganic materials, such as silica to convert perfume from liquid to solid.

Zeolite & Inorganic Carrier (ZIC): This technology relates to the use of porous zeolites or other inorganic materials to deliver perfumes. Perfume-loaded zeolite may be used with or without adjunct ingredients used for example to coat the perfume-loaded zeolite (PLZ) to change its perfume release properties during product storage or during use or from the dry situs. Silica is another form of ZIC.

Iodine Value

Another aspect of the invention provides a method to measure the iodine value of the glyceride copolymer. The iodine value is determined using AOCS Official Method Cd 1-25 with the following modifications: carbon tetrachloride solvent is replaced with chloroform (25ml), an accuracy check sample (oleic acid 99%, Sigma-Aldrich; IV = 89.86 + 2.00 cg/g) is added to the sample set, and the reported IV is corrected for minor contribution from olefins identified when determining the free hydrocarbon content of the glyceride copolymer.

Gas Chromatographic Analysis of Fatty Acid Residues in Glyceride Copolymer

The final glyceride oligomer products described in Examples 4, 5, 6, and 7 were analyzed by gas chromatography after olefins were vacuum distilled to below 1% by weight and the resulting oligomer products were trans-esterified to methyl esters by the following procedure.

A sample 0.10 ±0.01 g was weighed into a 20 mL scintillation vial. A 1% solution of sodium methoxide in methanol (1.0 mL) was transferred by pipette into the vial and the vial was capped. The capped vial was placed in a sample shaker and shaken at 250 rpm and 60 °C until the sample was completely homogeneous and clear. The sample was removed from the shaker and 5ml of brine solution followed by 5ml of ethyl acetate were added by pipette. The vial was vortex mixed for one minute to thoroughly to mix the solution thoroughly. The mixed solution was allowed to sit until the two layers separated. The top (ethyl acetate) layer (1 mL) was transferred to a vial for gas chromatographic analysis. Their normalized compositions, based on a select group of components, are shown in Table 9 in units of wt%.

Gas chromatographic data were collected using an Agilent 6850 instrument equipped with an Agilent DB-WAXETR column (122-7332E, 30 mx250 umxO.25 um film thickness) and a Flame Ionization Detector. The methods and the conditions used are described as follows: The GC method "Fast_FAME.M" was used for the analyses of all samples in Examples 1 through 7.

Free Hydrocarbon Content

Another aspect of this invention provides a method to determine both the free hydrocarbon content of the glyceride copolymer. The method combines gas chromatography / mass spectroscopy (GC/MS) to confirm identity of the free hydrocarbon homologs and gas chromatography with flame ionization detection (GC/FID) to quantify the free hydrocarbon present in the glyceride copolymer.

Sample Prep: The sample to be analyzed was typically trans-esterified by diluting (e.g.

400: 1) in methanolic KOH (e.g. 0.1N) and heating in a closed container until the reaction was complete (i.e. 90°C for 30 min.) then cooled to room temperature. The sample solution could then be treated with 15% boron tri-fluoride in methanol and again heated in a closed vessel until the reaction was complete (i.e. at 60°C for 30 min.) both to acidify (methyl orange - red) and to methylate any free acid present in the sample. After allowing to cool to room temperature, the reaction was quenched by addition of saturated NaCl in water. An organic extraction solvent such as cyclohexane containing a known level internal standard (e.g. 150ppm dimethyl adipate) was then added to the vial and mixed well. After the layers separated, a portion of the organic phase was transferred to a vial suitable for injection to the gas chromatograph. This sample extraction solution was analyzed by GC/MS to confirm identification of peaks matching hydrocarbon retention times by comparing to reference spectra and then by GC/FID to calculate concentration of hydrocarbons, fatty acid, and fatty diacid by comparison to standard FID response factors.

A hydrocarbon standard of known concentrations, such as 50ppm each, of typically observed hydrocarbon compounds (i.e. 1-dodecene, 1-tridecene, 1-tetradecene, 1-pentadecene, 1- hexadecene, 1-heptadecene, 1-octadecene, dodecane, tridecane, tetradecane, pentadecane, hexadecane, heptadecane and octadecane) was prepared by dilution in the same solvent containing internal standard as was used to extract the sample reaction mixture. This hydrocarbon standard was analyzed by GC/MS to generate retention times and reference spectra and then by GC/FID to generate retention times and response factors.

GC/MS: An Agilent 7890 GC equipped with a split/splitless injection port coupled with a Waters QuattroMicroGC mass spectrometer set up in EI+ ionization mode was used to carry out qualitative identification of peaks observed. A non-polar DB1-HT column (15m x 0.25mm x O.lum df) was installed with 1.4mL/min helium carrier gas. In separate runs, luL of the hydrocarbon standard and the sample extract solution were injected to a 300°C injection port with a split ratio of 25: 1. The oven was held at 40°C for 1 minute then ramped 15C minute to a final temperature of 325°C which was held for 10 minutes resulting in a total run time of 30 minutes. The transfer line was kept at 330°C and the temperature of the EI source was 230°C. The ionization energy was set at 70eV and the scan range was 35-550m/z.

GC/FID: An Agilent 7890 GC equipped with a split/splitless injection port and a flame ionization detector was used for quantitative analyses. A non-polar DB1-HT column (5m x 0.25mm x O.lum df) was installed with 1.4mL/min helium carrier gas. In separate runs, luL of the hydrocarbon standard and the sample extract solution was injected to a 330°C injection port with a split ratio of 100:1. The oven was held at 40°C for 0.5 minutes then ramped at 40C minute to a final temperature of 380°C which was held for 3 minutes resulting in a total run time of 12 minutes. The FID was kept at 380°C with 40mL/minute hydrogen gas flow and 450mL/min air flow. Make up gas was helium at 25mL/min. The hydrocarbon standard was used to create calibration tables in the Chemstation Data Analysis software including known concentrations to generate response factors. These response factors were applied to the corresponding peaks in the sample chromatogram to calculate total amount of free hydrocarbon found in each sample.

EXAMPLES

While particular embodiments of the present invention have been illustrated and described, it would be obvious to those skilled in the art that various other changes and modifications can be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention. It is therefore intended to cover in the appended claims all such changes and modifications that are within the scope of this invention.

Non-limiting examples of product formulations disclosed in the present specification are summarized below.

Example 1 - Reaction with Butenylyzed Canola Oil (BCO): Effect of BCO Content

The experimental apparatus consisted of a three-necked round-bottom flask equipped with a magnetic stir bar, a septum cap, and an outlet to a vacuum system. External heating was provided via a silicone oil bath. The septum was used to add metathesis catalyst and withdraw samples. The vacuum system consisted of a TEFLON diaphragm pump and a pressure controller.

Butenylyzed canola oil (BCO) was made by cross-metathesizing canola oil (Wesson) with 1-butene (1 mol of 1-butene per mol of C=C double bonds in the oil) according to the methods described in U.S. Patent No. 8,957,268. The BCO was mixed with canola oil (Wesson) and charged to a 500-mL round-bottom flask. The oil mixture was purged with nitrogen gas (Airgas, UHP) for about 15 minutes. The reaction flask was heated to about 70 °C and evacuated to the desired pressure (see below: 200 or 450 torr absolute.) A toluene (Sigma-Aldrich, anhydrous 99.8%) solution of C827 metathesis catalyst (10 mg/mL; Materia, Inc., Pasadena, California, USA) was added to the oil mixture to achieve a catalyst level of 100 ppmwt. The reaction was held at 70 °C while maintaining a dynamic vacuum at the desired pressure for 2 hours. A small sample of the reaction mixture was removed by syringe, quenched with ethyl vinyl ether (Sigma-Aldrich), and analyzed by GPC to determine the weight- average molecular weight (M w ) of the resulting glyceride oligomers.

Table 5 shows the resulting weight average M w for 13 different reactions, where the percentage of BCO was increased. The percentage of BCO reported is a weight percentage of BCO relative to the total weight of oil (BCO and canola oil combined). The weight average molecular weights are reported in units of g/mol.

Magnesol-600-R (Dallas Group of Am., 10 g) was added and the resulting mixture was stirred under nitrogen at ambient temperature for 30 minutes. The Magnesol-600-R was removed by vacuum filtration. A fresh charge of Magnesol- 600-R (10 g) was added and the resulting mixture was stirred under nitrogen at ambient temperature for 30 minutes. Heptane was removed by rotovap. Olefins were removed by vacuum distillation in a 1 L three-neck round-bottom equipped with a short-path distillation head; a condenser chilled to 5 °C; a 20 mL round bottom flask chiller with dry-ice/isopropanol; a magnetic stir bar; and thermometers to measure liquid temperature and vapor temperature. Heating was supplied through a resistive heating mantle. Vacuum was supplied by a two-stage rotary vane vacuum pump. The bulk of olefinic material was removed by gradually increasing the heat input. A very small nitrogen purge was maintained on the system for the initial part of the distillation. The final pressure was about 0.1 torr absolute and the final liquid temperature was 192 °C. The olefin content was less than 1% by mass. A sample of the final product was trans-esterified and analyzed by GC to determine the Fatty Acid Residues as described above. See Table 9 (below).

Example 5 - Cross-Metathesis of Canola with Butenylyzed Canola Oil (BCO) on One- Kilogram Scale with Catalyst Removal and Olefin Stripping

Using a similar metathesis procedure and apparatus to the one described in Example 1 , a 1 kg mixture of BCO and canola oil (50 wt%/50 wt%) was reacted for two hours. Catalyst removal was accomplished by THMP treatment. THMP treatments consisted of adding 1 M tris(hydroxymethyl)phosphine (THMP, 1.0 M, 50 mol THMP/mol C827) in water, stirring at ambient temperature for 2 hours, and then washing the product with water (2x100 mL) in a separatory funnel. Olefin by-products and traces of residual water were removed from the product by the same procedure and distillation apparatus as described in Example 4 except that no nitrogen purge was used. The final pressure was about 0.2 torr absolute and the final liquid temperature was 195 °C. The olefin content was less than 1% by mass and the M w of the glyceride oligomer was 16,700 g/mol. A sample of the final product was trans-esterified and analyzed by GC to determine the Fatty Acid Residues as described above. See Table 9 (below). Example 6 - Cross-Metathesis of Soybean Oil with Butenylvzed Soybean Oil (BSO) on a Two-kilogram scale with Catalyst Removal and Olefin Stripping

Using the same procedure and an apparatus similar to that described in Example 1 except that a 3 L flask was used in place of the 500 mL flask, a 1 kg, 50/50 wt% mixture of butenylyzed soybean oil and soybean oil (Costco) was reacted for about four hours using 100 ppm wt C827 catalyst. An additional 40 ppm of catalyst was added and after about two more hours the reaction was quenched with ethyl vinyl ether. Olefin by-products and traces of residual water were removed from a 265 g sample of the product by a similar distillation procedure and apparatus as described in Example 5. The final pressure was about 0.1 torr absolute and the final liquid temperature was 195 °C. The olefin content was less than 1% by mass. A sample of the final product was trans-esterified and analyzed by GC to determine the Fatty Acid Residues as described above. See Table 9 (below).

Example 7 - Cross-Metathesis of Canola Oil with Butenylvzed Canola Oil (BCO) on a Twelve- Kilo gram Scale with Catalyst Removal and Olefin Stripping

This example was conducted in a 5 gallon Stainless Steel Reactor (Parr) equipped with an impeller, a port for air-free catalyst addition, and a Strahman valve for sampling. The reactor system was completely purged with nitrogen before beginning.

The BCO (6.16 kg) was produced by a procedure similar to that used in Example 1 and mixed with canola oil (6.12 kg) and charged to the reactor. The oil mixture was stirred at 200 rpm while purging with nitrogen gas for about 30 minutes through a dip tube at a rate of 0.5 SCFM. The reactor was evacuated to 200 torr (absolute) and heated to 70 °C. The C827 metathesis catalyst (1.0 g, Materia, Inc., Pasadena, California, USA) was suspended in canola oil (50 mL) and added to the oil mixture. The reaction was maintained at 70 °C and at 200 torr for four hours. An additional charge of C827 catalyst (0.25 g) suspended in canola oil (50 mL) was added to the reaction. After an additional two hours, the reactor was back filled with nitrogen.

Catalyst removal was conducted in a 5 gallon jacketed glass reactor equipped with an agitator, a bottom drain valve, and ports for adding reagents. A 0.12 M aqueous solution of THMP (0.31 kg) was charged to the glass reactor and pre-heated to about 90 °C. The crude metathesis reaction product, still at 70 °C, was transferred to the glass reactor and the mixture was stirred (150 rpm) at about 80-90 °C for 20 minutes. The following wash procedure was done twice. Deionized water (1.9 kg at 60°C) was added to the reactor which was heated to 80-90 °C and the resulting mixture was stirred (100 rpm) for 20 minutes. The stirrer was stopped and the reactor contents were allowed to settle for 16 hours at a constant temperature of 80-90 °C. The bottom aqueous layer was carefully drained off. Following the second wash, the washed product was cooled and then drained to a container.

The washed product was divided into two portions to remove olefins and residual water, which was done using a similar distillation procedure and apparatus as described in Example 5. The final distillation pressure was about 0.1 torr absolute and the final liquid temperature was about 190 °C. Following distillation, the two portions were recombined. A small sample of the recombined product was trans-esterified and analyzed by GC to determine the Fatty Acid Residues as described above. See Table 9 (below).

The fatty acid residues in the final glyceride oligomer products produced in examples 4, 5, 6, and 7 were analyzed by the method described above after olefins were vacuum distilled to below 1% by weight. The Cio-i 4 unsaturated fatty acid esters, Cio-13 unsaturated fatty acid esters, and Cio-ii unsaturated fatty acid esters were calculated and are reported in Table 10.

Example 8 - Diene-Selective Hydrogenation of Crude Glyceride Polymer

In a 600 mL Parr reactor, 170 g of crude metathesis product from Example 6, 170 g of n- decane (Sigma-Aldrich, anhydrous, >99%), and 0.60 g PRICAT 9908 (Johnson Matthey Catalysts); saturated triglyceride wax removed before reaction via a toluene wash) were purged with N 2 , then ¾, for 15 minutes each, then reacted at 160° C under 100 psig ¾ (Airgas, UHP) with 1000 rpm stirring with a gas dispersion impeller. The ¾ pressure was monitored and the reactor was refilled to 100 psig when it decreased to about 70 psig. After six hours, the reaction was cooled below 50 °C and the hydrogen was displaced by nitrogen gas. The reaction mixture was vacuum filtered through diatomaceous earth to remove the catalyst solids. Olefin byproducts and n-decane were removed from the product by a similar distillation procedure and apparatus as described in Example 5. The final distillation pressure was about 0.1 torr absolute and the final liquid temperature was 195 °C. The olefin content was less than 1% by mass. A sample of the final product was trans-esterified with methanol and analyzed by GC. The level of polyunsaturated C18 fatty acid methyl esters (C18:2 plus C18:3) were reduced from 3.88 % in the starting material to 1.13% and the C21 :2 diester was reduced from 6.40% in the starting material to 3.72%.
