Development of a quinoxaline-based fluorescent probe for quantitative estimation of protein binding site polarity.
The compound 2-[(1E)-2-(1H-pyrrol-2-yl)ethenyl]-quinoxaline (PQX) is a promising fluorescent chromophore for the estimation of protein binding site polarity, due to its full-color solvatochromicExpand

Environmental polarity estimation in living cells by use of quinoxaline-based full-colored solvatochromic fluorophore PQX and its derivatives.
Fluorosolvatochromic probes have recently attracted interest for live cell imaging. We recently tested our quinoxaline-based fluorosolvatochromic probes, PQX and MPQX, for in vivo imagingExpand

Intramolecular Condensation of 1,2-C6H4(CH2RH)2 (R = O, S, and NH) to Yield Heterocyclic Compounds over Halide-cluster Catalysts
1,2-Benzenedimethanol was reacted under a helium stream in the presence of [(Nb6Cl12)Cl2(H2O)4]·4H2O supported on silica gel. When the temperature was raised above 200 °C, catalytic activity of the...

New Approach for Estimation of Pollutant Load by Using Artificial Neural Network
Pollutant load transported by rivers from non-point sources in watersheds is the major cause of eutrophication of closed water bodies such as lakes, reservoirs, and inner bays. Because itExpand

Development of multilayer imprint process for solid oxide fuel cells
Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are fuel cells made of ceramics. To increase the SOFC energy density, we developed an SOFC with a wavy electrolyte layer. As a wavy electrolyte has a larger reactionExpand

Development of corrugated ceramic sheet for SOFC electrolyte by micro imprint process
Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) has been used for an electrolyte of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC). To enhance the efficiency of SOFC, we developed a corrugated, or wavy-shaped, YSZ sheet for theExpand
