  • Patent number: 11187318
    Abstract: A vehicle includes an engine; a continuously variable transmission; an output clutch disposed between the continuously variable transmission and the drive wheel; a drive motor coupled between the output clutch and the drive wheel; a traveling mode controller; and a speed ratio controller. In a case where required driving power based on an accelerator position is less than a first threshold, the traveling mode controller switches a traveling mode to a first traveling mode. In a case where the required driving power is equal to or greater than the first threshold, the traveling mode controller switches the traveling mode to a second traveling mode. In a case where the required driving power is less than the first threshold and equal to or greater than a second threshold, the speed ratio controller causes a speed ratio of the continuously variable transmission to change depending on a vehicle speed.

  • Patent number: 11174279
    Abstract: The present invention pertains to a method for synthesizing a ribonucleic acid H-phosphonate monomer, and a method for performing oligonucleotide synthesis in which said monomer is used. The present invention pertains to a method for manufacturing an inexpensively manufacturable H-phosphonate nucleoside derivative in which selective protection is provided to position 2? of a ribonucleoside monomer required in RNA oligonucleotide synthesis. The present invention is characterized in that: hydroxyl groups in position 2? and position 3?, which have slightly different reactivity, are caused to react with an aromatic acyl halide at low temperature to selectively esterify position 2?; and subsequently the hydroxyl group at position 3? in one pot is captured by a phosphityl group to prevent position 2? and position 3? transfer of the acyl group.

  • Publication number: 20210305530
    Abstract: Provided is a light-emitting element with high external quantum efficiency, or a light-emitting element with a long lifetime. The light-emitting element includes, between a pair of electrodes, a light-emitting layer including a guest material and a host material, in which an emission spectrum of the host material overlaps with an absorption spectrum of the guest material, and phosphorescence is emitted by conversion of an excitation energy of the host material into an excitation energy of the guest material. By using the overlap between the emission spectrum of the host material and the absorption spectrum of the guest material, the energy smoothly transfers from the host material to the guest material, so that the energy transfer efficiency of the light-emitting element is high. Accordingly, a light-emitting element with high external quantum efficiency can be achieved.
