1H-NMR spectroscopy was successfully applied to the quantitative determination of atractylon in Atractylodis Rhizoma (dried rhizomes of Atractylodes ovata and A. japonica) and Atractylodis Lanceae Rhizoma (dried rhizomes of Atractylodes lancea and A. chinensis). The analysis was carried out by comparing the integral of the H-12 singlet signal of atractylon,(More)
The protective effects of cyclic dipeptides in alcoholic beverages were investigated in the perfused guinea-pig hearts subjected to ischemia and reperfusion. Subsequently, in order to determine the importance of cyclic dipeptide structure, the effects of cyclo(L-Leu-L-Tyr) (cLY) were compared with those of the newly synthesized non-cyclic dipeptides,(More)
Berberine, palmatine, and coptisine are major pharmacologically active protoberberine alkaloids in Coptidis Rhizoma, and have been used as indices for chemical evaluation of the crude drug. 1H-NMR spectroscopy was applied to determination of purities of commercial reagents of protoberberine alkaloids. The purities of the alkaloids were calculated from the(More)
A quantitative 1H-NMR method (qHNMR) was used to measure paeoniflorin content in Paeoniae radix (dried root of Paeonia lactiflora), of which paeoniflorin is a major component. The purity of paeoniflorin was calculated from the ratio of the intensity of the H-9 signal at δ 5.78 ppm of paeoniflorin to that of a hexamethyldisilane (HMD) signal at 0 ppm. The(More)
A new structure for an adenine-selective host molecule, featuring the pertinent link of five-six-five-membered heteroaromatic rings and two carbamoyl NH sites, was developed. This structure provides a correctly oriented array of complementary hydrogen bonding sites for the adenine nucleobase, which exploits both Watson-Crick and Hoogsteen-type interactions.(More)
