In this paper, we developed a more sophisticated method for detection and estimation of mixed paddy rice agriculture from Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) satellite data. Previous research demonstrated that MODIS data can be used to map paddy rice fields and to distinguish rice from other crops at large, continental scales with combined(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Ischemic stroke is characterized by high morbidity and mortality worldwide. Matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP2), aquaporin (AQP) 4, and AQP9 are linked to permeabilization of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury (CIRI). BBB disruption, tissue inflammation, and MMP/AQP upregulation jointly provoke brain(More)
Strategies to develop effective neuroprotective therapy to reduce brain damage and related behavioral deficits in stroke patients are of great significance. Electroacupuncture (EA), which derives from traditional Chinese medicine, may be effective as a complementary and alternative method for promoting recovery of neurological function and quality of life.(More)
A tri-rod structure, which can be seen as a combination of nanorod pairs reported by Shalaev et al. ͓Opt. Lett. 30, 3356 ͑2005͔͒, is proposed to realize negative refractions at infrared frequencies. In this system, a magnetic coupling effect is found between the two nanopairs and it results in two magnetic resonance modes: one mode at 146.6 THz and the(More)
In the title centrosymmetric dinuclear dioxidovanadium(V) complex, [V(2)(C(13)H(19)N(2)O(3))(2)O(4)], the V(V) ion is coordinated by an N,N',O-tridendate 2-eth-oxy-6-{[2-(2-hy-droxy-ethyl-amino)-ethyl-imino]-meth-yl}phenolate ligand and three oxide O atoms, forming a distorted cis-VN(2)O(4) octa-hedral geometry. The bridging O atoms show one short and one(More)
The V(V) atom in the title complex, [V(C(14)H(8)BrClN(2)O(2))(CH(3)O)O(CH(3)OH)], is six-coordinated by one phenolate O, one imine N and one enolic O atom of the hydrazone ligand, one oxide O atom, one methanol O atom and one methoxide O atom in a distorted octa-hedral geometry. The dihedral angle between the two benzene rings of the hydrazone ligand is(More)
The V(IV) atom in the title complex, [V(C(11)H(13)BrClN(2)O)(C(5)H(7)O(2))O], is six-coordinated by one phenolate O, one imino N and one amino N atom of the tridentate anionic Schiff base ligand, by one oxide O atom, and by two O atoms of an acetyl-acetonate anion, forming a distorted cis-VN(2)O(4) octa-hedral coordination geometry. The deviation of the V(More)
The mol-ecule of the title compound, [Mn(NCS)(2)(C(16)H(18)N(4))], has crystallographic twofold rotation symmetry, with the Mn(II) atom lying on the rotation axis. The Mn(II) atom is six-coordinated by four N atoms of the Schiff base ligand and by two N atoms of two thio-cyanate ligands, forming a distorted octa-hedral geometry.
