The effects of the removal of 18-MEA on the dynamic contact angle (advancing contact angle and receding contact angle) and friction force (friction force microscopy (FFM)) were examined in the present study. Chemically untreated hair tresses formed more finely ordered bundles, with the fibers aligned more parallel to each other, in the wet state, and lying(More)
Abstract: In recent years, investigations into the changes in the microstructure during the processing of functional metal materials have been carried out by many researchers. Therefore, it is required that the change in the material characteristic during processing by a nondestructive evaluation method be evaluated. However, conventional technology has(More)
Applicability of high-performance frontal analysis (HPFA) to the stereoselective study of drug-drug interaction upon plasma protein binding has been investigated. Racemic warfarin and phenylbutazone were used as model drugs. An on-line HPFA/HPLC system consisting of a HPFA column (diol-silica column), an extraction column, and a chiral separation column was(More)
The effect of the anteiso-branch moiety of 18-MEA (18-methyleicosanic acid) to create a persistent hydrophobicity of alkaline-color-treated weathered hair treated with 18-MEA/SPDA (stearoxypropyldimethylamine) was investigated by comparing a straight-chain fatty acid (n-heneicosanoic acid, n-HEA) and an iso-branch fatty acid (19-methyleicosanic acid,(More)
A technology for the deposition of a persistent hydrophobicity to alkaline-color-treated weathered hair surfaces using 18-MEA (18-methyleicosanoic acid) is presented. Two approaches were examined in order to make 18-MEA bind tightly to the alkaline-color-treated weathered hair surface. One was to apply 18-MEA as an acid form and the other was to apply(More)
