We report a high-performance liquid chromatographic method to determine the quantities of puerarin, daidzin, paeoniflorin, liquiritin, cinnamic acid, cinnamaldehyde and glycyrrhizin in Kampo medicine. All seven compounds were separated in less than 30 min with a Wakosil-II 5C18 AR column by linear gradient elution using 0.01% (v/v) phosphoric acid(More)
In this paper, in order to realize the image enlargement with high performance, we propose a new enlargement method, which restores high-frequency components lost in the interpolation-based methods, by using high-frequency estimation. The estimation is based on the eigenspace method proposed by Amano et al.. The proposed enlargement method can generate lost(More)
Character recognition is a classical issue which has been devoted by a lot of researchers. Making character recognition system more widely available in natural scene images might open up interesting possibility to use as an input interface of characters and an annotation method for images. Nevertheless, it is still difficult to recognize all sorts of fonts(More)
The present study reports on the ultrasonic enhancement of the liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction of luteolin and apigenin from the leaves of Perilla frutescens (L.) Britt., to which ethanol is added as a cosolvent. The purpose of this research is also to investigate the effects of the particle size, temperature, pressure, irradiation power, irradiation(More)
The symptoms of “color blindness” are due to an innate lack or deficit of cone cells that recognize colors. People with color blindness have difficulty discriminating combinations of specific colors. In this paper, we propose a novel color conversion algorithm for color blindness. In the proposed method, the difficult colors for discrimination(More)
