In plants, environmental adversity often leads to the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) because of excess light energy. We found that incubation of rice leaves under high light intensity together with CO2-depleted air seriously damaged photosynthesis; however, the application

It was shown that ubiquinone (CoQ(10)) and ubiquinol (CoQ(10)H(2)) produce fluorescence products under alkaline conditions when reacted with 2-cyanoacetamide. The reaction mixture from CoQ(10) gave fluorescence with excitation and emission maximum wavelengths at 442 nm and 549 nm, respectively. This

This paper described a sensitive and rapid method based on ultra-performance liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) for the determination of phenylephrine in human plasma. Plasma samples were pre-purified by solid-phase extraction (SPE). The chromatographic separation was achieved

A simple multiple-contact cross-polarization (CP) scheme is applied to a powder sample of ferrocene and β-calcium formate under static and magic-angle spinning (MAS) conditions. The method is described analytically through the density matrix formalism. We show that multiple equilibrations-re-equilibrations with
