The crosslinkers HDI isocyanurate and IPDI trimer were procured from Bayer Corporation (Desmodur N-3300 and Desmodur Z-4470.
The total adiponectin ELISA for FPLC fractions of untreated samples detected 3 distinct peaks for the HMW, hexamer, and trimer isoforms.
for PET these are the tetramer and lower including cyclic trimer) and large chains respectively.
Using the radiosotope method (Method RI) as described previously (13,14), we observed that styrene dimers and trimers did not show statistically significant inhibitory action against the binding of [[sup.3]H]-17[beta]-estradiol ([E.sub.2]) to ER.
Monomeric catechins and their methylated metabolites, and proanthocyanidins up to trimers were detected in blood samples treated with GSE using LC-MS/MS operating in the multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode.
Aliquots (50 [micro]L) of [sup.68]Ga- and [sup.89]Zr-labelled mono-, di-, and trimer (10 [micro]M) were diluted in 450 [micro]L PBS.
Ions for a procyanidin dimer (m/z 579.1), a procyanidin trimer (m/z 867.2), and a procyanidin tetramer (m/z 1153.2) were detected and positively identified by MS/MS fragmentation (Figure 2).
In the predicted results of the equilibrium composition of the molten alkali metal salts, metal chloride species mainly evaporates into monomer (CsCl, LiCl, and NaCl), dimer ([Cs.sub.2][Cl.sub.2], [Li.sub.2][Cl.sub.2], and [Na.sub.2][Cl.sub.2]), and trimer ([Li.sub.3][Cl.sub.3]) and then become dominant species of the equilibrium gas phase.
In the absence of OPP (0 mcg/ml), we see that there are 3 species of the peptide found: the monomer, the dimer, and the trimer. At a concentration of 0.9 [micro]g/ml OPP, we see that only 2 species are found: the monomer and the dimer.
ULTRA[R] is the result of polyaspartic esters blended with a hexamethylene diisocyanate trimer utilized as a hardener.
