Representative Research Cases

Analytical technology for observing metabolic responses and mechanisms in the aorta of atherosclerosis patients

  • Metabolic and lipidomic changes were monitored in the aorta of atherosclerosis patients using LC-MS-based metabolite profiling and target analysis, and this is proposed as an analytical technology that allows to investigate the metabolic responses and mechanisms of the development of atherosclerosis and the plaque formation.
  • Multivariate analysis and metabolic pattern of polar/lipid metabolite profiling Multivariate analysis and metabolic pattern of polar/lipid metabolite profiling

Improving Na Ion Battery Electrode Activity of Layered Titanate

  • Among the n-alkylamine-intercalates, the n-pentylamine-intercalated titanate showed the largest discharge capacity with the best rate characteristics, which was explained with 23Na NMR spectra revealing the different Na ion sites in the electrode materials.
  • Superior capacities of Na batteries with titanate intercalated with n-pentyl amine (left) were explained with 23Na solid-state NMR spectra (middle) revealing Na ion
sites in the electrodes (right) corresponding synthetic peptide analysis.Superior capacities of Na batteries with titanate intercalated with n-pentyl amine (left) were explained with 23Na solid-state NMR spectra (middle) revealing Na ion sites in the electrodes (right) corresponding synthetic peptide analysis.
