This paper presents a multipurpose image watermarking scheme which embeds robust and fragile watermarks in the wavelet domain for image retrieval and content integrity verification simultaneously. The proposed scheme consists of two main phases, the offline process and the online retrieval process. In the offline process, the feature vector is extracted… (More)
A practical diastereoselective synthetic method for 8018 enantiopure isomers is described. The intramolecular asymmetric epoxidation of mono-sulfonate 4 was applied for the execution of the synthesis of the key chiral building block for the first time. The isomers were obtained with 70-76% yields in 99-100% ee.
A novel robust digital image watermarking algorithm based on predictive vector quantization is proposed in this paper. The robust watermark is embedded in the image by selecting the prediction mode of each PVQ coded vector according to the watermark bit. The proposed watermarking algorithm is proved to be robust against both friendly and hostile attacks,… (More)
A series of 4-alkylamino-1-hydroxymethylimidazo[1,2-a]quinoxalines have been synthesized and evaluated for their adenosine A(1) receptor inhibitory activity in the radioligand binding assays. The compounds were tested for the inhibition percent (IP) and the affinity toward A(1)AR (K(i)) that IP were more than 90% in the nanomolar range.… (More)
