A water-soluble polysaccharide (MCP) was isolated from the fruits of Momordica charantia L., and the hypoglycemic effects of MCP were investigated in both normal healthy and alloxan-induced diabetic mice. MCP was orally administered once a day after 3 days of alloxan-induction at 100, 200 and 300mg/kg body weight for 28 day. Results showed that fasting(More)
The contents of 18 kinds of mineral elements in Cyclocarya paliurus polysaccharide samples were determined by ICP-AES. The limits of detection (LOD) of the method for 18 elements were in the range of 0.01-3.80 mg/kg. The average recoveries obtained by the standard addition method were found between 94.34% and 105.69% (RSD, 1.01-4.23%). The results showed(More)
A Cyclocarya paliurus (Batal.) Iljinskaja polysaccharide (CPP) was isolated and purified by hot water extraction, ethanol precipitation, deproteinisation and anion-exchange chromatography. Its physicochemical properties were characterised by gel permeation chromatography (GPC), gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), thermal gravimetric analysis(More)
A total of 120 patients with advanced schistosomiasis were divided into two groups. Group A (60 patients) were treated with Anluo Huaxian Wan. Group B (60 patients) were treated with routine liver protection drugs. After 12-month treatment, not only the symptoms and abnormal signs of the patients in Group A improved greatly, but also the level of markers of(More)
Recently, renewed interest has grown in the use of ultrasonic-assisted extraction as an alternative approach to the traditional extraction methods. In this study, this novel extraction method was used to isolate polysaccharides from Cyclocarya paliurus (Batal.) Iljinskaja, and response surface methodology (RSM) was employed to optimize the extraction(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclocarya paliurus (Batal.) Iljinskaja is a well-known edible and medicinal plant in China and is commonly called the 'sweet tea tree'. It has been reported to have a broad range of therapeutic and nutritional values in lowering blood sugar, blood lipids and blood pressure. However, much of the annual C. paliurus production is wasted. Recent(More)
The highly efficient asymmetric hydrogenation of alpha-arylmethylene cycloalkanones catalyzed by Ir-complexes of chiral spiro aminophosphine ligands was developed, providing chiral exo-cyclic allylic alcohols at high yields with excellent enantioselectivities (up to 97% ee) and high turnover numbers (S/C up to 10,000). This new reaction provided an(More)
The optimization of extraction conditions, physicochemical characterizations and antioxidant activities of polysaccharide from Mesona chinensis (MCP) were investigated. Optimal extraction conditions of MCP with the highest yield of 7.05±0.12% was obtained by response surface methodology (RSM). The physicochemical characterizations of MCP obtained at the(More)
A feedback control method is proposed to create a degenerate Hopf bifurcation in three-dimensional maps at a desired parameter point. The particularity of this bifurcation is that the system admits a stable fixed point inside a stable Hopf circle, between which an unstable Hopf circle resides. The interest of this solution structure is that the asymptotic(More)
The production of enantiopure chiral compounds is important for pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries because enantiomers can exhibit distinct biological activities. Therefore, processes that directly produce the desired enantiomer are desirable. First reported by Knowles, Horner et al. in 1968, catalytic asymmetric hydrogenation of unsaturated(More)
