Filed Mar. 2, 1964, Ser. No. 348,820 20 Claims. (Cl. 252-321) This application is a continuation-in-part of copending application Ser. No. 62,092, filed October 12, 1960, now abandoned.
This invention relates to oil-soluble, nitrogen-containing compositions and in a more particular sense it relates to such compositions derived from acylation of alkylene amines. The compositions of this invention are useful in hydrocarbon oils and are especially useful in lubricating oils.
Mineral lubricating oils are susceptible to oxidation in service and in storage. Oxidation results in the formation of organic acids, aldehydes, ketones, etc. These products, especially the organic acids, are corrosive to metal and are a principal cause of excessive wear of the metal parts coming into contact with the oil. Oxidation also results in the formation of products which have a tendency to agglomerate to form sludge and varnish-like deposits. It is thus a common practice to incorporate into lubricating oils chemical additives which are capable of inhibiting oxidation of the oil and counteracting the corrosive action of the oil oxidation products. Substances useful as additives for this purpose include the metal phosphorodithioates, particularly zinc and barium phosphorodithioates. The metal phosphorodithioates are also capable of improving the load-carrying characteristics of the oil. Hence, the use of such additives in lubricating compositions, especially lubricating compositions intended for use under heavy load conditions such as encountered in the lubrication of gears and power transmitting units is particularly wide-spread.
While the metal phosphorodithioates are effective in improving the lubricating properties of hydrocarbon oils, they are, unfortunately, themselves susceptible to deterioration upon prolonged exposure to high temperatures. Deterioration of metal phosphorodithioates usually manifests itself first in the appearance of haze or sediment in the lubricating composition. It eventually results not only in the loss of the desirable lubricating properties of the additive but also in the formation of objectionable decomposition products. Because of such tendency to undergo thermal decomposition, metal phosphorodithioates have not been considered satisfactory for use in lubricating compositions which must be constantly exposed to high temperatures in normal usage. Thus, it will be readily appreciated that improvement in the thermal stability of metal phosphorodithioates will greatly enhance the utility of such additives in lubricating compositions. In accordance with this invention, lubricating compositions containing metal phosphorodithioates may be improved with respect to their thermal stability by the incorporation therein of a novel additive described hereinbelow.
Accordingly it is an object of this invention to provide a process for preparing novel compositions of matter.
It is another object of this invention to provide compositions useful as additives in hydrocarbon oils.
It is another object of this invention to provide hydrocarbon oil compositions having improved detergent properties.
It is another object of this invention to provide improved lubricating oil compositions.
It is another object of this invention to provide additives adapted especially for use with metal phosphorodithioates in hydrocarbon oils.
It is also an object of this invention to provide lubricating compositions containing metal phosphorodithioates which compositions are characterized by an improved resistance to thermal deterioration.
These and other objects are attained in accordance with this invention by providing a process for preparing acylated amines which comprises heating at a temperature above about C. an alkylene amine with from about 0.5 to about 1 equivalent for each equivalent of the alkylene amine used of an acidic mixture consisting of a hydrocarbon-substituted succinic acid having at least about 50 aliphatic carbon atoms in the hydrocarbon radi cal and an aliphatic mono-carboxylic acid, the ratio of equivalents of said succinic acid to said mono-carboxylic acid in said acidic mixture being from about 1:01 to about 1:1 and removing the Water formed thereby.
The term alkylene amine is used herein in a generic sense to denote a class of polyamines conforming for the most part to the structure in which x is an integer preferably less than about six and the alkylene radical is preferably a lower alkylene radical such as ethylene, propylene, trimethylene, tetramethylene, or the like. Thus, it includes, for example, ethylene diamine, diethylene triamine, triethylene tetramine, tetraethylene pentamine, trimethylene diamine, propylene diamine, tetramethylene diamine, butylene diamine, N-aminoethyl trirnethylene diamine, N-dodecyl propylene diamine, di-(trimethylene) triamine, pentaethylene hexamine, etc. It includes also higher and cyclic homologues of such amines such as piperazines. The ethylene amines are especially useful. They are discussed in some detail under the heading Ethylene Amines in Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology Kirk and Othmer, volume 5, pages 898905, Interscience Publishers, New York (1950). Such compounds are prepared most conveniently by the reaction of alkylene dihalide, e.g., ethylene dichloride, with ammonia or primary amines. This reaction results in the production of somewhat complex mixtures of alkylene amines including cyclic condensation products such as piperazine, N-aminoethyl-piperazine, etc. These mixtures find use in the process of this invention. On the other hand, quite satisfactory products may be obtained also by the use of pure alkylene amines. An especially useful alkylene amine for reasons of economy as well as effectiveness of the products derived therefrom is a mixture of ethylene amines prepared by the reaction of ethylene chloride and ammonia having a composition which corresponds to that of tetraethylene pentamine.
The aliphatic mono-carboxylic acids contemplated for use in the process of this invention include saturated and unsaturated acids. Examples of useful acids are acetic acid, chloroacetic acid, dodecanoic acid, butanoic acid, palmitic acid, decanoic acid, oleic acid, stearic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, naphthenic acid, chlorostearic acid, formic acid, tall oil acid, etc. Acids having 12 or more aliphatic carbon atoms, particularly stearic acid and oleic acid, are especially useful.
Aliphatic mono-carboxylic acids useful in the process of this invention may be iso-aliphatic acids, i.e., acids having one or more lower acyclic pendant alkyl groups. The iso-aliphatic acids result in products which are more readily soluble in hydrocarbon oils at relatively high concentrations and more readily miscible with other additives in the oil. Hence, they are preferred especially when the products of the process are to be used in lubricants containing other additives. Such acids often contain a principal chain having from 14 to 20 saturated, aliphatic carbon atoms and at least one but no more than about four pendant acyclic alkyl groups. The principal chain of the acid is exemplified by radicals derived from tetradecane, pentadecane, hexadecane, heptadecane', octadecam, and eicosane. The pendant group is preferably a lower alkyl radical such as methyl, ethyl, n-propyl, isopropyl, n-butyl, isobutyl, tert-butyl, n-hexyl, or other radical having less than about 6 carbon atoms. The pendant group may also be a polar-substituted alkyl radical such as chloromethyl, bromobutyl, methoxyethyl, or the like, but it preferably contains no more than one polar substituent per radical. Specific examples of such acids are iso-aliphatic acids such as IO-methyl-tetradecanoic acid, ll-methyl-pentadecanoic acid, 3-ethylhexadecanoic acid, IS-methyl-heptadecanoic acid, l6-methyl-heptadecanoic acid, 6-methyl-octadecanoic acid, 8-methyl-octadecanoic acid, IO-methyl-octadecanoic acid, 14-methyl-octadecanoic acid, 16-methyl-octadecanoic acid, 15-ethy1-heptadecanoic acid, 3-chloromethyl-nonadecanoic acid, Z-methyl-eicosanoic acid, 9,IO-dimethyl-octadecanoio acid, 7,8,9,ltetramethyl-octadecanoic acid, and 2,9,l0-trirnethyl-octadecanoic acid.
An especially useful class of iso-aliphatic acids are the mixtures of branch-chain acids prepared by the isomerization of commercial fatty acids. A particularly useful method comprises the isomerization of an unsaturated fatty acid having from 16 to 20 carbon atoms, by heating it at a temperature above about 250 C. and at a pressure between about 200 and 700 p.s.i. (pounds per square inch), distilling the crude isomerized acid, and hydrogenating the distillate to produce a substantially saturated isomerized acid. The isomerization is promoted by a catalyst such as mineral clay, diatomaceous earth, aluminum chloride, zinc chloride, ferric chloride, or some other Friedel-Crafts catalyst. The concentration of the catalyst may be as low as 0.01%, but more often from 0.1% to 3% by Weight of the isomerization mixture. Water also promotes the isomerization and a small amount, from 0.1% to by weight, of water may thus be advantageously added to the isomerization mixture.
A by-product of the isomerization process is a polymerized unsaturated fatty acid. This product can be removed as the residue by distillation or as the insoluble fraction by solvent extraction, precipitation, or filtration of the reaction mixture. On the other hand, the desired isomerized product can be recovered, as above, as the distillate, usually by heating the reaction mixture under vacuum. The distillate may contain also the unreacted portion of the unsaturated fatty acid. However, upon hydrogenation, the isomerized acid and the unused start ing acid yield significantly difierent products which can be separated by solvent extraction and precipitation. Thus, the hydrogenated product of the unreacted starting acid will be considerably higher melting and less soluble in a solvent such as acetone. The hydrogenation can be effected by any one of the well known methods such as catalytic hydrogenation in the presence of Raney nickel or platinum. The product of the hydrogenation should have an iodine number less than about 10.
The mechanism of the isomerization is not known. It is known, however, that the product of the isomerization is monomeric but structurally different from the starting acid in that its hydrocarbon radical now contains at least one branched chain.
The unsaturated fatty acids from which the iso-aliphatic acids may be derived include, in addition to oleic acid mentioned above, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, or commercial fatty acid mixtures such as tall oil acids containing a substantial proportion of unsaturated fatty acids.
The term succinic acids as used herein includes both the succinic acids and the anhydrides of the acids. The anhydrides are preferred because of their greater reactivity. The hydrocarbon-substituted succinic acids useful in the process of this invention are those in which the hydrocarbon radical may be exemplified by an alkyl or alkenyl group and contains at least about 50 aliphatic carbon atoms. They are commonly derived from polyolefins such as polyethylene, polypropene, polybutene, etc. having molecular weights of 750 or higher. They may be likewise derived from substantially aliphatic hydrocarbon substances such as copolymers of isobutene with styrene. In the latter case the copolymers will be substantially aliphatic i.e., they will contain at least about by weight of the units derived from aliphatic olefinic monomers.
The hydrocarbon-substituted succinic anhydrides are readily available from the reaction of maleic anhydride with a high molecular weight olefin or a chlorinated high molecular weight hydrocarbon. The reaction involves merely heating the two reactants at a temperature about 200 C. The product from such a reaction is an alkenyl succinic anhydride. The alkenyl group may be hydrogenated to an alkyl group. The anhydride may be hydrolyzed by treatment with water or steam to the corresponding acid. A particularly preferred source of the hydrocarbon-substituent in the succinic acid is a polymer of lower mono-olefins having up to 6 carbon atoms such as polybutenes. The use of polyolefins having molecular weights of 10005000 is preferred. Higher molecular weight polyolefins such as those having molecular weights from about 10,000 to about 100,000 or even higher have been found to impart also viscosity index improving properties to the product of this invention. In many instances, the use of such higher molecular weight polyolefins is desirable. Other sources of the hydrocarbon substituent include petroleum fractions such as waxes, mineral oils, still bottoms, etc.
The size of the hydrocarbon substituent in the succinic acid molecule appears to determine the effectiveness of the product of this process as an additive in hydrocarbon oils for the purpose of this invention. Substituted succinic acids and their derivatives have been known for some time. It has likewise been known that these compounds are useful in lubricants, but their utility hereto fore has been predicated upon their rust-preventing properties, corrosion-inhibiting properties, etc. The useful ness of compositions of this type for the purpose of this invention has never been realized and an important aspect of this invention resides in the discovery that by increasing the size of this particular substituent an entirely new property can be incorporated into the composition.
The process of this invention comprises essentially the acylation of the alkylene amine with all of the acid radicals in both the hydrocarbon-substituted acid and the mono-carboxylic acid used. The acylation is accompanied by the formation of approximately one mole of water for each equivalent of the acid radical used. The product resulting from the process is substantially nonacidic, i.e., it has an acid number as determined by ASTM Procedure D974-58T less than 10. The precise composition of the product is not known. It appears that the product comprises predominantly amides and imides and may contain cyclic or polyamide linkages. The relative proportions of these substances in the product are not known. Also, a very small amount of amine carboxylate salts, imidazolines and polyamidines may be formed but these do not amount to an appreciable proportion in the product.
The relative proportions of the reactants to be used in the process of this invention are such that for each equivalent of the alkylene amine used, there is employed from about 0.5 to about 1 equivalent of the acidic mixture of a hydrocarbon-substituted .succinic acid and a mono-can boxylic acid in respective ratios of equivalents within the range from about 120.1 and about 1:1. It will be noted that the equivalent weight of the alkylene amine is based upon its nitrogen content and that the equivalent weight of the acid reactant is based upon the number of acid radicals in the molecule. Thus, one mole of alkylene amine has as many equivalents as there are nitrogen atoms in the molecule, one mole of the succinic acid or anhydride has two equivalents and one mole of the mono-carboxylic acid has one equivalent. The above limits with respect to the relative proportions of reactants are predicated upon the stoichiometry of the reaction involved in the process and also the utility of the products for the purposes of this invention. For example, the use of more than one equivalent of the acidic mixture for one equivalent of the alkylene amine used results in products having excessive acidity and corrosive tendencies. On the other hand, the use of lesser amounts of the acidic mixture limited by a minimum of 0.5 equivalent for each equivalent of the alkylene amine used results in products having unreacted free amino-nitrogen atoms. Such products have been found to be useful and are therefore contemplated within the scope of this invention. Again based upon consideration of utility, the preferred amount of the acidic mixture to be used in the process is one equivalent for each equivalent of the alkylene amine used and the preferred ratio of equivalents of the hydrocarbon-substituted succinic acid and the mono-carboxylic acid in the acidic mixture are within the range from 1:0.25 to 120.5.
The process of this invention may be carried out in either of two ways. It may be carried out by heating a mixture of the hydrocarbon-substituted succinic acid, the mono-carboxylic acid and the alkylene amine. Alternatively it may be carried out by first reacting the alkylene amine with the hydrocarbon-substituted succinic acid to form an intermediate product and then reacting further the intermediate product with the mono-carboxylic acid. A critical aspect in carrying out the process is that the alkylene amine should not be allowed to react with the mono-carboxylic acid in the absence of the succinic acid reactant. If such reaction is allowed to take place, the final product, i.e., the final product obtained by reacting further such product with the hydrocarbon-substituted succinic acid is unsatisfactory. Thus, for example, such final product has been found not only to possess no detergent properties but to be capable of promoting the tendency to form harmful deposits of hydrocarbon compositions to which it has been added. The reason for the critical difference between such product and the products obtained by the process of this invention is not known.
The acylation reaction which characterizes the herein described process requires a minimum temperature of about 80 C. The preferred temperature is between 15 0 C. and 250 C. Higher temperatures may be used, provided that such temperatures do not cause decomposition of the components of reaction mass.
As indicated previously, the reaction involved in the process of this invention is accompanied by the formation of approximately one mole of water for each equivalent of the acid radical used. The removal of the water formed may be effected conveniently by heating the product at a temperature above about 100 C. preferably in the neighborhood of about 150 C. The removal of water may be facilitated by blowing the reaction mixture with an inert gas such as nitrogen during such heating. It may likewise be facilitated by the use of a solvent which forms an azeotrope with water. Such solvents are exemplified by benzene, toluene, naphtha, n-hexane, xylene, etc. The use of such solvent permits the removal of water at a lower temperature, e.g., 80 C.

The liquid isomerized acid product (obtained by the solvent extraction and precipitation method as described in Example 1) is found to have an iodine number of 11 and at least one branched chain (shown by infrared analysis). An oil-soluble composition is prepared by reaction of this acid with the polyisobutene-substituted succinic anhydride and the amine mixture of Example 1, in accordance with the procedure of Example 1.
EXAMPLE 12 A mixture of 100 parts of oleic acid, 2 parts of water, and 4 parts of a mineral clay is heated at 230 C. for 3 hours and then subjected to distillation under vacuum.

The liquid isomerized acid product (obtained by solvent extraction and precipitation as described in Example 1) is found to have an iodine number of 8 and at least one branched chain (shown in infrared analysis). An oilsoluble, nitrogen-containing composition is prepared by reaction of this acid with the polyisobutene-substituted anhydride and the amine mixture of Example 1, in accordance with the procedure of Example 1.
EXAMPLE 13 An iso-aliphatic acid (43 parts by weight) obtained by a procedure substantially the same as is described in Example 10 and having an acid number of 176, and the isobutene substituted succinic anhydride of Example 1 (456 parts), are mixed with 186 parts of mineral oil. The mixture is added at -107 C. to 182 parts of mineral oil and 78 parts of the amine of Example 1. The resulting mixture is blown with nitrogen at 205 210 C. for 8 hours whereupon volatile components are distilled ofl. The residue is cooled and filtered at 138 C. .The filtrate, 904 parts (representing 97% of the theoretical yield), is the desired product and has a nitrogen content of 2.7%.
The products of the process of this invention are for the most part liquids or semi-solids. They are soluble in hydrocarbon oils and are useful as additives in hydrocarbon oils such as fuel oils, gasolines, metal Working oils, lubricating oils, etc. They are especially effective as additives to impart detergent properties to the oil, and thus to prevent the deposition of sludgeor varnishlike substances from the oil. They are also effective in improving the thermal stability of hydrocarbon oils containing metal phosphorodithioates. The metal phosphoroditbioates which are most commonly used in hydrocarbon oils include the salts of metals in group II of the Periodic Table, particularly barium and zinc, of phosphorodithioic acids having the formula wherein R and R are organic radicals such as alkyl, alkaryl, arylalkyl, and cycloalkyl radicals. Those metal phosphorodithioates in which the R and R radicals contain a minimum 7.5 aliphatic carbon atoms per each phosphorus atom are most readily soluble in oils and are, therefore, preferred for such use. For reasons of economy, the R and R radicals in the phosphorodithioic acids are preferably low molecular Weight alkyl radicals and lower alkylphenyl radicals. Illustrative alkyl radicals include methyl, ethyl, isopropyl, isobutyl, n-butyl, secbutyl, n-pentyl, neopentyl, S-methyl-butyl, n-heptyl,
methyl-isobutyl, 2-ethyl-hexyl, di-isobutyl, iso-octyl, decyl, etc. Illustrative cycloalkyl radicals and lower alkylphenyl radicals include cyclopentyl, cyclohexyl, methyl-cyclohexyl, butyl-phenyl, amylphenyl, diamylphenyl, octylphenyl, polyisobutyl (molecular weight l000)-substituted phenyl, etc. Other hydrocarbon radicals such as tetradecyl, octadecyl, eicosyl, butylnaphthyl, hexylnaphthyl, cyclohexylphenyl, naphthenyl, etc. likewise are useful. Many substituted hydrocarbon radicals such as chloroalkyl, dichlorophenyl and chloroalkylphenyl radicals may also be used.
The availability of the phosphorodithioic acids from which the metal salts are prepared is well known. They are prepared for example, by the reaction of phosphorus pentasulfide with an alcohol or phenol. The reaction involves 4 moles of the alcohol or phenol per mole of phosphorus pentasulfide and may be carried out within the temperature range from about 50 C. to about 200 C. and preferably from about 80 C. to about 120 C. Thus, the preparation of di-n-hexylphosphorodithioic acid involves the reaction of phosphorus pentasulfide with 4 moles of n-hexyl alcohol at about 100 C. for about 2 hours. Hydrogen sulfide is liberated and the residue is the defined acid. The preparation of the metal salt of this acid may be effected by reaction of the acid with a metal neutralizing agent such as zinc oxide. Simply mixing and heating these reactants is sufficient to cause the neutralization to take place and the resulting product is sufficiently pure for the purpose of this invention.
Especially useful metal phosphorodithioates can be prepared from phosphorodithioic acids which in turn are prepared by the reaction of phosphorus pentasulfide with mixtures of alcohols. The use of mixtures of alcohols enables the utilization of cheaper alcohols which in them selves do not yield oil-soluble phosphorodithioate acid salts. Thus, a mixture of isopropyl and hexyl alcohols can be used to produce a very effective oil soluble metal phosphorodithioate. For the same reason mixtures of simple acids i.e., acids prepared from a single alcohol, can be reacted with the metal neutralizing agent to produce less expensive oil-soluble metal salts.
The amount of the products of this invention to be used sufiicient to improve the thermal stability of hydrocarbon compositions containing metal phosphorodithioate additives will vary according to the amount of the metal phosphorodithioate additive present therein. In most compositions such as those useful as lubricants for internal combustion engines, gears, power-transmitting units, the phosphorodithioate additive should be present in amounts to impart from about 0.01% to about 0.5% by weight of phosphorus to the compositions. It has been found that from about 0.05% to about 5% by weight of the products of this invention usually will suffice to improve the thermal stability of such compositions. When used as additives to impart detergent properties to hydrocarbon oils, the products of this invention may be used in amounts ranging from about 0.001% to about by weight or even more. Further, for use in fuel oils, the concentration should be within the range from about 0.001% to about 0.5%, and when used in lubricating oils, the amount may be from about 0.1% to about 10%.
The eifectiveness of the products of this invention in improving the thermal stability of lubricating compositions containing metal phosphorodithioates is shown by data obtained from a test in which a 20 cc. sample of a lubricating composition placed in a inch glass test tube having immersed therein a strip (2 x 0.5 inch) of 10-20 steel as a catalyst to promote deterioration is maintained at 295 F. until the first appearance of haze or sediment. The thermal stability of the lubricating composition is measured by the time in hours required for this appearance of haze or sediment. The results are summarized in Table I. The lubricating base oil used in this test is a SAE 90 grade mineral lubricating oil. All percentages are by weight.
The eflicacy of the products of this invention as additives which impart detergency to hydrocarbon oils is shown by the comparative data of Table H. This data was acquired from a test in which a 350 cc. sample of a Mid-Continent, conventionally refined lubricating oil having a viscosity of 200 SUS/ F. containing 0.001% by Weight of iron naphthenate (as a promoter of oil degradation) and a specified amount of the detergent additive to be tested, is placed in a boro-silicate tube. A 1%" x 5 /8" SAE 10-20 steel panel is immersed in the oil. The sample is then heated at 300 F. for 48 hours while air is bubbled through the oil at a rate of 10 liters per hour. The oxidized sample is cooled to F., mixed with 0.5% by weight of water, homogenized, allowed to stand at room temperature for 24 hours and then filtered through 2 layers of number 1 Whatman filter paper at 20 mm. mercury pressure. The precipitate is washed with naphtha and dried. The weight of the precipitate expressed as milligrams per 100 cc. of the oil is taken as a measure of the detergent properties of the lubricating composition, i.e., the greater the weight of the precipitate the less effective the detergent properties. The appearance of the steel panel is also noted and rated on a numerical scale from 0 indicating a heavy deposit to 10 indicating no deposit.

' The products of this invention are also useful as pour point depressants in mineral oils. For instance, the pour point of a SAE 10W 30 base oil is lowered from 10 F. to F. by the incorporation therein of 1% by Weight of a 60% oil solution of the reaction product of the polyisobutene-substituted succinic anhydride of Example l (6 equivalents), stearic acid (1 equivalent), and the polyethylene polyamine of Example 1 (l4 equivalents).
The following examples illustrate the lubricating compositions containing metal phosphorodithioates which may be improved by the addition thereto of products of this invention (all percentages are by weight):
LUBRICANT 1 SAE 20 mineral lubricating oil containing 0.05% of phosphorus as zinc dicyclohexylphosphorodithioate and 0.1% of the product of Example 1.

The products of this invention are also useful in the oil-fuel mixtures for two-cycle internal combustion engines. In this application they are efiective to reduce the engine wear and minimize the tendency of the oil-fuel mixture to cause spark plug fouling and to form harmful engine deposits. Their effectiveness is shown by the results (Table III) of a two-cycle engine test in which a 60-horse power, two-cycle, three-cylinder outboard motor is subjected to cycling operations, each cycle consisting of 55 minutes of full throttle operation (5500-5600 r.p.m.) and 5 minutes of idling at 600-700 r.p.m. under the following conditions: water inlet temperature, 78-82 F.; water outlet temperature, 140180 F.; and tank temperature, 95105 F. The test period of 50 or 100 hours unless excessive spark plug fouling is observed. The oilfuel mixture used in the test consists of 720 (parts by volume) of a regular, leaded gasoline having an octane number of 93-94 and 18 parts of a SAE 40 mineral lubricating oil containing the chemical additive. The efiectiveness of the additive is measured in terms of the piston cleanliness on a scale of 0 to 10 (0 being indicative of extremely heavy deposits and 10 being indicative of no deposit) and the average life of the spark plugs, i.e., the number of changes of spark plugs made necessary by fouling during the test period.
The gasolines useful as the fuels for two-cycle engines may be of regular or premium grade having an octane number from about to about 110. They may contain an anti-knock agent such as tetraethyl lead or tetramethyl lead and a scavenger such as ethylene dibromide or ethylene dichloride. In lieu of the gasoline, diesel fuel likewise is useful in two-cycle internal combustion engines. The lubricating base oils useful in the oil-fuel mixture for two-cycle engines are usually characterized by viscosity values from about 30 to about 200 SUS (Saybolt Universal Seconds) at 210 F. The most commonly used oils are the mineral lubricating oils having viscosity values from about 40 to about SUS at 210 F. They are exemplified by mineral lubricating oils of SAE 10 to SAE 50 grades.
The relative proportions of the lubricating oil to the gasoline in the oil-fuel mixture may vary within Wide ranges such as from a ratio of about 1:120 to a ratio of about 1:5, respectively, by volume. The preferred ratio is from about 1:10 to about 1:60, respectively, of the lubricating oil to the gasoline.
The oil-fuel mixtures for two-cycle engines may contain other additives such as metal-containing detergents, corrosion-inhibiting agents, oxidation-inhibiting agents, etc. The metal-containing detergents are exemplified by the alkaline earth metal salts of oil-soluble acids, e.g., mahogany sulfonic acid and didodecylbenzene sulfonic acid. The metal salts include both the normal salts and the basic salts, the latter describing the metal salts in which the metal is present in a stoichiometrically greater amount than the organic acid radical. Specific examples of the metal-containing detergents are calcium salt of mahogany sufonic acid, strontium salt of mahogany sulfonic acid, basic barium salt of didodecylbenzene sulfonic acid obtained by carhonating a mixture of a mineral oil, a sulfonic acid and barium hydroxide (5 chemical equivalents per equivalent of the acid) in the presence of a promoting agent such as octylphenol (one equivalent per equivalent of the acid). Other metal-containing detergents include the alkaline earth metal salts of organic phosphorus acids prepared by the treatment of an olefin polymer (such as polyisobutene having a molecular weight of about 1000) with a phosphorus sulfide (such as phosphorus pentasulfide or phosphorus heptasulfide). These metal salts likewise may be normal or basic salts.
The corrosion-inhibiting agents and the oxidation-inhibiting agents are exemplified by phenolic compounds such as 2,6-dibutyl-4-methylphenol, 4,4'-methylene-bis(2- tert-butyl 6 isopropylphenol), 2-methyl-6-tert-butyl-4- heptylphenol, and sulfurized heptylphenol, Arylamines and sulfurized hydrocarbons likewise are useful as inhibitmg agents. They include, for example, sulfurized dipentene (obtained by the reaction of two moles of dipentene with one mole of sulfur at C.), the reaction product of turpentine (4 moles) with phosphorus pentasulfide (1 13 mole), N,N'-dibutyl phenylenediamine, N-phenyl naphthylamine and dibutyl tetrasulfide.
The concentrations of the chemical additives in the oilfuel mixtures depend to some extent upon the oils and fuels used and the types of service to which the oil-fuel mixtures are to be subjected. In most applications the nitrogen-containing composition of the invention is present in the oil-fuel mixture at concentrations ranging from 0.001% to about 2%, preferably from 0.01% to 3% by weight of the mixture. The concentration of the other additives may each range from 0.0001% to 2% by weight of the mixture.
The following examples illustrate further the fuel-oil mixtures containing the oil-soluble, nitrogen-containing compositions of this invention (the relative proportions of the fuel and the lubricating oil are expressed in parts by volume whereas the concentration of the additives are expressed in percentages by weight of the oil-fuel mixture).
