Abstract: A rear gear for a bicycle, in which a driving member having two or more sprockets is supported rotatably and axially movably with respect to a driven member. Clutch mechanisms are provided at the axially opposite surfaces between the driving and the driven members so that the driving member may be axially moved to cooperate with the driven member through the connection of each of the clutch mechanisms, thereby permitting rotation of the driving and driven members together.
Abstract: Bisphenoxy carboxylic acid derivatives useful as an antiarteriosclerosis agent with good absorbability and low toxicity, which are novel compounds represented by the general formula, ##STR1## wherein R.sub.1 and R.sub.2 represent hydrogen atoms or lower alkyl groups and A preresents ##STR2## (wherein in case R.sub.3 is a hydrogen atom, R.sub.4 represents an amino-lower-alkyl group, an N-lower-alkylaminoalkyl group, a heterocyclic group, or a heterocyclic group-substituted alkyl group; or R.sub.3 and R.sub.4 may join through an intermediary hetero atom to form a heterocyclic group and if said hetero atom is a nitrogen atom, this nitrogen atom can bear a lower alkyl group as a substituent) or ##STR3## (wherein R.sub.5 represents a hydrogen atom, a hydroxyalkyl group or a derivative thereof, and R.sub.6 represents a hydroxyalkyl group or a heterocyclic group; or R.sub.5 and R.sub.
Abstract: A novel substituted-arylacetic acid ester of the formula, ##STR1## wherein R.sub.1 and R.sub.2 are each hydrogen or a halogen atom, a C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl, C.sub.2 -C.sub.4 alkenyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkoxy, cyano, nitro, methylthio, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkanoyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkanoyloxy, or C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkoxycarbonyl group, or R.sub.1 and R.sub.2, taken together, may form methylenedioxy, a C.sub.3 -C.sub.5 alkylene or butadienylene (--CH.dbd.CH--CH.dbd.CH--) ring; R.sub.3 is a C.sub.2 -C.sub.4 alkyl, C.sub.2 -C.sub.4 alkenyl, propargyl, C.sub.3 -C.sub.6 cycloalkyl or cyclopropylmethyl group; R.sub.4 is hydrogen or a halogen atom, methyl or ethyl group; R.sub.5 is allyl, propargyl, 3-butenyl, 3-butynyl, phenyl or benzyl group; and A is oxygen or sulfur atom or --CH.dbd.CH-- group, which possesses various useful insecticidal and acaricidal activities and can be prepared by reacting a substituted-arylacetic acid of the formula; ##STR2## wherein R.sub.1, R.sub.2, R.sub.
Abstract: A cation exchanger in paper-like or felt-like form is obtained by making a fibrous sheet from a blend of polyethylene fibers into which sulfonic groups have been introduced with 0.1 to 50% by weight of thermoplastic resin fibers and heating the sheet at the softening temperature of said thermoplastic resin or higher temperatures. This cation exchanger is useful in softening or desalination of raw water, separation and recovery of various metals, and adsorption of basic dyestuffs and cationic dyestuffs.
Abstract: Carboxylated pullulan obtained by oxidizing pullulan with an oxidizing agent is readily soluble in cold water and has favorable film-forming property, yielding a film having high mechanical strengths, high modulus of elasticity and good transparency.

Abstract: In block-copolymerizing a vinyl aromatic compound and a conjugated diene in a hydrocarbon solvent using an organolithium compound as initiator, a transparent block copolymer resin characterized by having elastomeric random copolymer blocks may be produced by continuously adding a mixture of the vinyl aromatic compound and the conjugated diene. The block copolymer resin thus obtained is transparent, excellent in mechanical characteristics and may be used in the fields of sheetings, films, and various molded articles.
Abstract: Novel 1-substituted benzodiazepine derivatives and salt thereof having the formula, ##STR1## wherein R.sub.1 is a hydrogen atom, a halogen atom, a nitro group, a cyano group, a lower alkoxy group or a trifluoromethyl group; R.sub.2 is a pyridyl group or a group of the formula ##STR2## wherein R.sub.5 and R.sub.6 represent individually a hydrogen atom, a halogen atom, a lower alkyl group or a trifluoromethyl group); R.sub.3 is a hydrogen atom or a lower alkyl group; R.sub.4 is a lower alkyl, cycloalkyl, cycloalkylalkyl, aryl or aralkyl group; m is 1 or 2; and n is an integer of 1 to 4, and a process for preparation thereof and pharmaceutical use of the same.The benzodiazepine derivatives are effective as tranquillizers, muscle-relaxants and hypnotics.
Abstract: New flavone derivatives to be used as analeptics having the formula ##STR1## wherein R.sub.1 and R.sub.2 are both methyl or ethyl, or taken together with the nitrogen atom to which they are attached represent a mononuclear 5- or -6 membered heterocyclic ring which may contain an oxygen atom as further hetero atom; R.sub.3 and R.sub.4 are hydrogen or methyl, provided that at least one of them is hydrogen, and process for the preparation thereof starting from resorcinol and phenylacetonitrile or a phenylacetonitrile derivative.
