Colored grains including red, purple, and black rice, purple corn, black barley, and black soybean contain anthocyanins. The present study was designed to (i) identify and quantify the individual anthocyanins and measure the total phenolic content (TPC), (ii) evaluate the antioxidant and alpha-glucosidase inhibitory activity, and (iii) correlate the TPC(More)
Eleven cultivars of celery, belonging to 2 species, were collected and analyzed for their phenolic compound composition and antioxidant activities. Major phenolic acids identified in the extracts of these celeries were caffeic acid, p-coumaric acid, and ferulic acid, while the identified flavonoids were apigenin, luteolin, and kaempferol. The contents of(More)
Most existing works investigate consensus with noise following a certain distribution, e.g., Gaussian distribution, with fixed expectation and variance, which may not be satisfied in practical applications. This paper investigates the discrete system consensus under bounded noise, which is important and practical problem. We first provide necessary and(More)
The internet enables the rapid and easy creation, storage, and transfer of knowledge; however, services that transfer geographic knowledge and facilitate the public understanding of geographic knowledge are still underdeveloped to date. Existing online maps (or atlases) can support limited types of geographic knowledge. In this study, we propose a framework(More)
In recent years, SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) has been widely used in the real-time guidance system. As the foundation of system, SAR image registration directly affects the guidance performance. In order to achieve the high precision and low computation, in this paper, we adopt well-known FAST (Features from Accelerated Segment Test) for feature(More)
A pair of novel chiral compounds based on homochiral 8-fold interpenetrated metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and chiral polyoxometalates (POMs), formulated as d-[Cu(4,4'-bipy)1.5]4[Mo8O26] (d-1) and l-[Cu(4,4'-bipy)1.5]4[Mo8O26] (l-1) (4,4'-bipy = 4,4'-bipyridine), have been successfully synthesized and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction,(More)
