Amine oxides are the amphoteric surfactants that are widely used in conjunction with various other surfactants. These surfactants can either be cationic (positively charged), anionic (negatively charged) or non-ionic (no charge) depending on the pH of the water. Amine oxides are the chemical compounds that are the only oxides of the tertiary amines. Amine oxides are sometimes also used for the analogous derivation of the primary and secondary amines. Amine oxides are usually used as the protecting group for amines as well as other chemical intermediates. Amine oxides are high polar molecules and have their polarity close to that of quaternary ammonium salts. However, smaller amines oxides exhibits hydrophilic properties owing to which it is highly soluble in water. Amine oxides find their applications in various industries such as oilfield chemicals, agriculture adjuvants, home care and personal care.

Agricultural gloves are made of different types of polymers in order to protect the hands of the farmers from chemicals and pesticides that are used in agricultural crops. An agriculturist needs to perform various kinds of work which requires protection of their hands. Some of the regular works undertaken in an agriculture farm include distribution of chemicals and pesticides, pruning of branches, harvesting crops, horticulture which renders the farmer susceptible to various kinds of risks such as abrasion, sting, cold conditions and deep cuts. Agricultural gloves act as a protective piece of clothing from the various physical risks in agriculture such as thermal, mechanical and chemical hazards.
Diethanolamine, also known as DEA or DEOA, is a white solid organic compound at room temperature. The compound is obtained when ammonia and ethylene oxide undergo chemical reaction. Apart from diethanolamine, this reaction also results in the production of monoethanolamine and triethanolamine. Diethanolamine is a part of two chemical groups namely alcohol and amine. This results in a unique property of the compound to react with both groups. In alcohol form diethanolamine is hygroscopic in nature and can react to form esters. In the form of amine the compound is slightly more alkaline and upon reaction with acids forms soap and salt. This unique characteristic of diethanolamine results in most of its applications. In industrial applications the compound is used in its pure form or as aqueous solutions of different concentration of diethanolamine.
Deicing fluid is the process of removing ice, snow from a surface. Deicing fluids lower the freezing point of water and typically comprise of salts, glycols and alcohols. Other methods of deicing include mechanical methods such as scrapping and pushing or by applying heat. Deicing fluid is sprayed on the surface using hoses or spray guns. Deicing is used in several application segments namely transportation, aviation and for consumer needs.
Cytokinins is a plant growth hormone which promotes cell division in plant shoots and roots. Types of cytokinins include adenine- type and phenyl urea type. The applications of cytokinins include biomedicine, pharmaceutical, agriculture and others.
Chinese car rental market emerged in 1990 when the Asian Games was held in Beijing. Afterwards, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen with higher internationalization level began to develop the market at first. Until 2000, the car rental market extended to other cities. Over more than a decade of development, China had more than 400,000 vehicles for lease by 2014 with the market size of nearly RMB40 billion, and the figures are expected to be 750,000 and over RMB60 billion by 2018.
