Special Purpose Vehicle

A subsidiary of a company that attempts to isolate risk from the parent company by maintaining its assets and liabilities on a completely separate balance sheet. It can be used as a counterparty in swap transactions, or the parent company can finance a project through an SPV that would put the parent company in danger of bankruptcy if the project does not perform well. During the Enron scandal, SPVs developed notoriety because Enron hid much of its debt in SPVs.

Either a Single-Purpose Entity or a Special-Purpose Entity.These two are not the same thing.

Although sucrose polyester alkyds lend themselves to high-solids solventborne resin systems, they can also be adapted to emulsion resin systems for formulation of very low-VOC waterborne coatings.
Sucrose polyester alkyds produced from FAMEs of various vegetable oils are expected to have different effects on coating performance depending on the level of unsaturation and conjugation present in the fatty acid chains.
A variety of highly esterified sucrose polyesters were synthesized containing six to eight fatty acid residues using a laboratory scale process modeled after the sucrose polyester production process previously discussed.
Resulting fatty acid compositions were characterized by dissolving a small sample of sucrose polyester in acetone and adding a preparatory reagent, trifluoromethylphenyl-trimethyl ammonium hydroxide in methanol, to convert the fatty acids into methyl esters for analysis.
A long oil alkyd paint without sucrose polyester modification was also made to be used as an experimental control.
