We investigated the optical properties of a one-dimensional photonic crystal infiltrated with a bistable chiral tilted homeotropic nematic liquid crystal as the central defect layer. By modulating the nematic director orientation with applied voltage, the electrical tunability of the defect modes was observed in the transmission spectrum. The composite not(More)
Chemical investigation on the soft coral Sarcophyton ehrenbergi collected from the Xisha Islands of the South China Sea have led to the isolation of eight cembranoids including five new ones, sarcophytonoxides A-E (1-5). The structures of new cembranoids (1-5) were determined by spectroscopic analysis and comparison of the NMR data with those of related(More)
A new compound was isolated from the traditional Chinese folk herb Crotalaria ferruginea. The structure of the new compound was identified as (±)-crotaferruphenol (1) based on analyses of its spectroscopic data including NMR, MS, and specific rotation values. (±)-Crotaferruphenol was a novel heterodimer characteristic of a unique spiroketal moiety, which(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Salvia plebeia R. Brown, a traditional Chinese medicinal herb, has been used to treat inflammatory diseases such as cough, hepatitis, and diarrhea for a long history. AIM OF THE STUDY The aim of the present study was to isolate and identify potential anti-inflammatory agents from the herb of S. plebeia, which may have(More)
Eight previously undescribed diterpenoids, crolaevinoids A-H, including two halimanes, four clerodanes, and two laevinanes, along with six known analogues were isolated from the twigs of Croton laevigatus. The structures of the previously undescribed were elucidated by spectroscopic analysis, and their absolute configurations were determined by combination(More)
Two novel biscembranoids, sarelengans A and B (1 and 2), five new cembranoids, sarelengans C-G (3-7), along with two known cembranoids (8 and 9) were isolated from the South China Sea soft coral Sarcophyton elegans. Their structures were determined by spectroscopic and chemical methods, and those of 1, 4, 5, and 6 were confirmed by single crystal X-ray(More)
