A system which consists of chitosan (CS) microcores entrapped within enteric polymer is investigated. Vitamin D2 (VD2) used as a model drug, was efficiently entrapped in CS microcores using spray drying and was microencapsulated by coating of ethylcellulose. The morphology and release properties of microcapsules were tested. The factors which influenced the(More)
The feasibility of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) for chlorogenic acid content analysis in ethanol precipitation process of water extract of Lonicera japonica was verified in this work. A calibration and validation set was designed for the conception and evaluation of the method adequacy. An experimental protocol was then followed, involving two(More)
This study demonstrated that near-infrared chemical imaging (NIR-CI) was a promising technology for visualizing the spatial distribution and homogeneity of Compound Liquorice Tablets. The starch distribution (indirectly, plant extraction) could be spatially determined using basic analysis of correlation between analytes (BACRA) method. The correlation(More)
It has been reported that hyperspectral data could be employed to qualitatively elucidate the spatial composition of tablets of Chinese medicinal plants. To gain more insights into this technology, a quantitative profile provided by near infrared (NIR) spectromicroscopy was further studied by determining the glycyrrhizic acid content in licorice,(More)
A methodology is proposed to estimate the multivariate detection limits (MDL) of on-line near-infrared (NIR) model in Chinese Herbal Medicines (CHM) system. In this paper, Lonicera japonica was used as an example, and its extraction process was monitored by on-line NIR spectroscopy. Spectra of on-line NIR could be collected by two fiber optic probes(More)
Ethanol precipitation plays a major role in the pretreatment of Flos Lonicerae Japonicae of Qingkailing injection, and is also one of the most popular purification techniques in Chinese herbal medicines. In order to monitor and have a better understanding of the ethanol precipitation process, a PLS model was built based on NIR spectroscopy and HPLC analysis(More)
Our previous work had proved that accuracy profile theory could be employed as a means of validating one PLS model in Chinese material medica system. In this paper, accuracy profile theory is proposed as a powerful decision tool to demonstrate the prediction performance of multi-model at each concentration level rather than all concentration levels. Partial(More)
Menthol is a widely used penetration enhancer in clinical medicine due to its high efficiency and relative safety. Although there are many studies focused on the penetration-enhancing activity of menthol, the details of molecular mechanism are rarely involved in the discussion. In this study, we present a series of coarse-grained molecular dynamics(More)
Surface water and sediment samples concurrently collected in Songhua River in northeastern China from May to October 2006 were analyzed for Dechlorane Plus (DP), a chlorinated flame retardant. Samples were obtained from three main areas: SHR-Rul (rural area of Songhua River), SHR-Hrb (the section of the river within the city of Harbin), and Hrb (urban(More)
In multivariate calibration using a spectral dataset, it is difficult to optimize nonsystematic parameters in a quantitative model, i.e., spectral pretreatment, latent factors and variable selection. In this study, we describe a novel and systematic approach that uses a processing trajectory to select three parameters including different spectral(More)
