Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is credited with the majority of the health benefits associated with green tea consumption. It has a high economic and medicinal value. The feasibility of using different variable selection approaches in Fourier transform near-infrared (FT-NIR) spectroscopy for a rapid and conclusive quantitative determination of EGCG in(More)
To rapidly and efficiently measure antioxidant activity (AA) in green tea, near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy was employed with the help of a regression tool in this work. Three different linear and nonlinear regressions tools (i.e. partial least squares (PLS), back propagation artificial neural network (BP-ANN), and support vector machine regression (SVMR)),(More)
High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was identified green tea's quality level by measurement of catechins and caffeine content. Four grades of roast green teas were attempted in this work. Five main catechins ((-)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), (-)-epigallocatechin (EGC), (-)-epicatechin gallate (ECG), (-)-epicatechin (EC), and (+)-catechin (C))(More)
A fantastic resonance light scattering (RLS) enhancement phenomenon was found when the interaction between the metal ion Cu (II) and a natural antioxidant curcumin (C(21)H(20)O(6)) occurred in certain conditions. Based on this phenomenon, a novel and convenient assay of curcumin was developed and successfully applied on the determination of curcumin in(More)
In this paper, we derive and analyze an infectious disease model containing a fixed latency and non-local infection caused by the mobility of the latent individuals in a continuous bounded domain. The model is given by a spatially non-local reaction-diffusion system carrying a discrete delay associated with the zero-flux condition on the boundary. By(More)
Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) biosensors have promising potential in the field of antibiotics detection because of their ultrahigh detection sensitivity. This paper reports a rapid and sensitive SERS-based magnetic nanospheres-targeting strategy for sensing tetracycline (TTC) using aptamer-conjugated magnetite colloid nanocrystal clusters(More)
