Burlington Scientific Corp., Farmingdale, NY, said it has patented a new chemical compound, denatonium capsaicinate, reported to possess a combination of "very bitter, vile-tasting properties" that give the product the potential for use as an antifoulant in marine paint and other products. The company said the substance has been incorporated in polymeric insulated wire coverings to prevent damage by rodents, and also can function as an environmentally acceptable fungicide and insect repellent. Commercial production is anticipated in mid-2000, and limited developmental quantities are currently available, the company said. More information is available by calling M. Blum at 631/694.4700.
