To develop effective skin-lightening agents, we tested medicinal herbal extracts for their melanogenic-inhibitory activities. We isolated a sesquiterpenoid compound from the extract of Atractylodis Rhizoma Alba using the bioactivity-guided fractionation and identified it as selina-4(14),7(11)-dien-8-one (compound 1) with spectroscopic methods. Compound 1(More)
due to the destruction of the ozone layer. Our skin is more exposed to UV radiation and often suffers from various harmful effects of UV. Melanin prodcution in human skin is an important defense mechanism against UV and a major determinant of skin color. Melanocytes residing within the basal layer of the epidermis synthesize melanin in specialized(More)
The crystallinity of polyethylene, which significantly affects the properties of the polymer, is quite sensitive to the concentration of its branches. Thus, it is necessary to estimate branch concentration with reasonable accuracy. Currently, (13)C NMR and gel permeation chromatography-Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy are widely-used analysis methods(More)
