4-Nonylphenol (para-nonylphenol, 4-NP), metabolites including linear and branched isoforms of nonylphenol (n-NP and t-NP, respectively), has been considered an endocrine disrupting substance resulting in reproductive dysfunction and increasing reactive oxygen species production in testis, liver, kidney, and brain. However, to date, whether vasculature is(More)
Four new compounds, including two new dihydroagarofuranoid sesquiterpenes, 8-benzoyloxymutangin (1) and 15-acetoxyorbiculin G (2), a new lignan derivative, 9,9'- O-di-(Z)-feruloyl-(-)-secoisolariciresinol (3), and a new benzenoid, 5'-methoxyevofolin B (4), have been isolated from the stem of Microtropis japonica, together with 20 known compounds (5- 24).(More)
Certain oxime- and amide-containing quinolin-2(1H)-one derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their antiproliferative and antiplatelet activities. These compounds were synthesized via alkylation of hydroxyl precursors followed by the reaction with NH(2)OH or NaN(3) (Schmidt reaction). The preliminary assays indicated that amide derivatives are(More)
In this study, a questionnaire survey of school drinking water quality of 42 schools in Pingtung County was conducted according to the water sources, treatment facilities, location of school as well as different grade levels. Among them, 45% of schools used tap water as the main source of drinking water, and the schools using groundwater and surface water(More)
Alkylphenol polyethoxylate (APEO) derivatives, such as nonylphenol monoethoxylate (NP1EO), nonylphenol diethoxylate (NP2EO), nonylphenol (NP) and octylphenol (OP), have been detected in the surface water, sediment, food and groundwater of numerous countries. Because groundwater is the main source of water for pig herds, the aim of this study was to measure(More)
