Patent
Chubu University and PRADEEP METALS Ltd | Date: 2015-07-31

The present invention addresses the problem of providing a heating furnace that sufficiently exhibits the microwave effect produced by microwave heating and allows economical heating taking advantage of the characteristics of each heating method. The provided microwave composite heating furnace (1) is equipped with: a housing (10); a heating container (11) for accommodating and heating an object to be heated; a heating means (12) for heating the heating container (11) from the outside; a microwave irradiation device (13); a to-be-heated object supplying device (14) that supplies the object to be heated to the inside of the heating container (11); a gas introducing means (15) for introducing gas into the heating container (11); and a gas recovery means (16) for recovering the gas generated when heating the object to be heated. The heating container (11) comprises a material that has high electrical conductivity so as to reflect microwaves and confine the microwaves inside and that has high heat resistance so as not to react with the heated object, thereby confining microwaves irradiated into the heating container (11) not through the outer wall of the heating container, and allowing an improvement in electromagnetic field density.

We analyzed the S 3 invariant Higgs potential with S 3 singlet and doublet Higgs. We obtained a relation (|v 1|/|v 2|)2=-sin 2φ 2/sin 2φ 1 from this S 3 invariant Higgs potential, where v 1, v 2 and φ 1, φ 2 are vacuum expectation values and phases of S 3 doublet Higgs, respectively. This relation could be satisfied exactly by the results |v 1|/|v 2|=0.207, φ 1=-74.9°, and φ 2=0.74° obtained from our previous work analyzing the quark/lepton mass and mixing in the S 3 invariant Yukawa interaction. Furthermore, the relation v S∼v D=√|v 1|2+|v 2|2=174GeV is obtained, and then the coupling strength of the Higgs to the top quark gH Stt=m t/v S is altered by a factor √2 from the standard value. Introducing the S 3 doublet Higgs, flavor changing neutral currents are produced at tree level. The predicted branching ratios for rare decays μ -→e -e +e -, KL0→μ +μ -, etc., induced by the flavor changing neutral currents, are sufficiently below the present experimental upper bounds. © 2012 American Physical Society.

Anthocyanins are one type of flavonoid phytopigment. Although the role of anthocyanins as a functional food factor remains relatively less established than that of other flavonoids, progress in this area has been made at the molecular level in recent years. This review discusses the potential health benefits of plant-derived anthocyanin-rich foods, with a focus on the role of anthocyanins in obesity control, diabetes control, cardiovascular disease prevention, and improvement of visual and brain functions, areas that have attracted much attention. Such health benefits are not necessarily derived from the antioxidant effect of anthocyanins, but in fact are produced by currently unestablished chemical properties beyond the antioxidant capacity of the molecules. However, a better understanding of the physiological functionality of anthocyanins remains to be elucidated. It is desirable, therefore, to clarify the molecular type and composition of the anthocyanins that confer specific health benefits and to conduct further investigation into the underlying molecular mechanisms. The pharmacological actions of anthocyanins could not be fully established without knowledge on the effects of treatment of anthocyanins alone, the effects of non-anthocyanin components, and the possible interactions between anthocyanin and non-anthocyanin species. © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

A highly enantioselective method (up to 98% ee) for the preparation of β-amino alcohols was achieved by using the readily available proline-tetrazole as the catalyst for the N-nitroso aldol reaction of aldehydes with in situ generated nitrosocarbonyl compounds. The key to success of this reaction is the use of MnO2 as an oxidant and catechol as a Brønsted acid additive. © 2014 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.


Patent
Chubu University | Date: 2013-08-09

The present invention addresses the problem of providing a means which is effective for the induction of the differentiation of a brown adipocyte and therefore enables a brown adipocyte to be used for and applied to, for example, the prevention/treatment of obesity or metabolic syndrome. Provided is a brown adipocyte differentiation-inducing agent containing, as an active ingredient, (1) CREG1 protein or (2) an expression vector carrying CREG1 gene.


Patent
Denso Corporation and Chubu University | Date: 2014-08-21

An antiviral agent according to the present disclosure includes, as an active ingredient, an extract extracted from a microalga Pseudochoricystis ellipsoidea Sekiguchi et Kurano gen. et sp. nov. MBIC11204 strain. The microalga may be cultured in a culture medium comprising sufficient nitrogen or may be cultured in a nitrogen-deficient medium thereafter. The extract is extracted from the microalga with alcohol, hot water, or the like as an extraction solvent. The extract may be extracted from the residue thereof with hot water. The antiviral agent may include the extract obtained using one extraction solvent, or may include a mixture of the extracts obtained using multiple extraction solvents.
