Phosphorylated cellulose propionate derivatives as thermoplastic flame resistant/retardant materials: influence of regioselective phosphorylation on their thermal degradation behaviour
Cellulose ester derivatives having phosphoryl side-chains were synthesized by phosphorylation of two types of cellulose propionate (CP); the difference between the two CPs was whether the primaryExpand
SH-containing cellulose acetate derivatives: preparation and characterization as a shape memory-recovery material.
Cellulose derivatives having a cross-linkable mercapto group were prepared by esterification of cellulose acetate (CA) with mercaptoacetic acid. The molecular structure of a series of productsExpand
Identification of naturally-occurring polyamines as nematode Meloidogyne incognita attractants.
Root-knot nematodes (RKN, genus Meloidogyne) are a class of plant parasites that seek out and infect roots of many plant species. It is believed that RKN target certain signaling molecules derivedExpand
Hexasubstituted disilanes from chlorosilanes and lithium in tetrahydrofuran
Abstract General procedures are provided for the preparation in satisfactory yields of hexamethyl-, hexaethyl- and 1,2-dibenzyl-1,1,2,2-tetramethyldisilane from the corresponding R 3 SiCl compoundsExpand
Distribution of coniferin in freeze-fixed stem of Ginkgo biloba L. by cryo-TOF-SIMS/SEM
To clarify the role of coniferin in planta, semi-quantitative cellular distribution of coniferin in quick-frozen Ginkgo biloba L. (ginkgo) was visualized by cryo time-of-flight secondary ion massExpand
Lignin-rich Enzyme Lignin (LREL), a Cellulase-treated Lignin-Carbohydrate Derived from Plants, Activates Myeloid Dendritic Cells via Toll-like Receptor 4 (TLR4)
Background: Although lignins are the second major biomass, their biological activities are little known. Results: Certain barley husk-derived lignin-carbohydrate fractions strongly activatedExpand
In Planta Localization of Stilbenes within Picea abies Phloem1[OPEN]
The axial parenchyma cells of Norway spruce phloem accumulate stilbenes, the amount of which varies with changes in cell type and cell volume from the inner to the outer phloem. Phenolic stilbeneExpand
Adsorption behavior of poly(dimethyl-diallylammonium chloride) on pulp fiber studied by cryo-time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry and cryo-scanning electron microscopy
Abstract In this study, the adsorption behavior of poly(dimethyl-diallylammonium chloride) (PDADMAC), a retention agent used in papermaking, in a dual polymer system with anionic poly(acrylamide)Expand
ToF-SIMS analysis of carbonaceous particles in the sample catcher of the Hayabusa spacecraft
Three carbonaceous category 3 particles (RA-QD02-0180, RB-QD04-0037-01, and RB-QD04-0047-02) returned in the sample catcher from the Hayabusa spacecraft were analyzed by time of flight-secondary ionExpand
Antioxidant activity of a hydrothermal extract from watermelons
Abstract In this study, the antioxidant activity of hydrothermal extracts of different parts of watermelons (flesh, white rind, and green rind) was evaluated. Each part of the watermelons wasExpand
