Diet samples were collected to estimate dietary intakes of 232Th, 238U, cesium, and strontium for Vietnamese adults using duplicate portion studies and market basket studies. Average concentrations of 232Th, 238U, cesium, and strontium in diet samples were 4.0 ng/g-dry, 2.5 ng/g-dry, 41 ng/g-dry, and 4.5 ng/g-dry, respectively. Daily intakes per person for… (More)
Although both high maturity and agility appeared as different ways to address and overcome issues related to software development (including maximizing resources and minimizing risks), there has been a mixed understanding about the possibility for their co-existence within an organization. Outside of the dogmatic debate regarding their co-existence,… (More)
A chemical investigation of the fruiting bodies of Hexagonia apiaria resulted in the identification of nine compounds including five new triterpenoids, hexagonins A-E (1-5), along with four known compounds. The purified constituents were examined for their anti-inflammatory activity. Among the tested compounds, hexatenuin A displayed the most significant… (More)
Chemical profiles of essential oils from four Fissistigma species: Fissistigma bracteolatum Chatt., Fissistigma villosissimum Merr., Fissistigma latifolium (Dunal) Merr. and Fissistigma glaucescens (Hance) Merr. were analysed by gas chromatography-flame ionisation detector and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Fissistigma essential oils consist mainly… (More)
This paper is concerned with the asymptotic behavior of solutions of linear differential-algebraic equations with asymptotically constant coefficients. Some results of asymptotic integration which are well known for ordinary differential equations (ODEs) are extended to differential-algebraic equations (DAEs).
One new schiartane-type triterpene, heteroclitalactone N (1), and four known compounds (2-5), seco-coccinic acid F, dihydroguaiaretic acid, schizanrin F, and kadsuralignan B were isolated from the stems of Kadsura heteroclita. Their structures were determined by the combination of spectroscopic and chemical methods, including 1D-, 2D-NMR, and CD spectra as… (More)
