  • Publication number: 20150030784
    Abstract: In a conductive film forming method using photo sintering, a conductive film having low electric resistance is easily formed. The conductive film forming method is a method in which a conductive film is formed using photo sintering. This method includes the steps of forming a layer made of a sintering promoter on a substrate, forming a liquid film made of a copper particulate dispersion on the layer of the sintering promoter, drying the liquid film to form a copper particulate layer, and subjecting the copper particulate layer to photo sintering. The sintering promoter is a compound which removes copper oxide from metallic copper. Thereby, the sintering promoter removes a surface oxide film of copper particulates in photo sintering.

    Abstract: Provided is an age-related apolipoprotein B oxidase (apoBNOX) found tightly associated with the low-density lipoprotein particles and believed to be responsible for oxidizing lipoprotein particles and initiating atherogenesis. It causes damage by directly oxidizing the apolipoprotein B protein and indirectly oxidizing the lipids in the particles due to superoxide formation by the apoBNOX and its conversion into hydrogen peroxide. apoBNOX activity is inhibited by tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol and components of white wine, important components of French and Mediterranean diets, which seem to be a very good source of inhibitors of the apolipoprotein B oxidase. Agents comprising at least one naturally-occurring apoBNOX inhibitor and compositions lessen, ameliorate or treat disorders and complications resulting from cell damage caused by oxidation of apolipoprotein B.

  • Publication number: 20110064950
    Abstract: The subject of the present invention is a method for preparing pyrocatechol from which the impurities resulting from the method for the preparation thereof have been removed. The method for preparing purified pyrocatechol from a crude pyrocatechol containing essentially pyrocatechol, small amounts of impurities including dihydroxybenzoquinone, and traces of hydroquinone and of phenolic compounds, is characterized in that it comprises at least the following steps: dissolution of the crude pyrocatechol in water, crystallization of the pyrocatechol, separation of the purified pyrocatechol and, optionally, a step of drying the purified pyrocatechol. The method of the invention may include other steps and, depending on the embodiment chosen, that may comprise a different series of steps, it is possible to obtain pyrocatechol with various degrees of purity.
