Laboratory report on quantification of anacardic acids from pistachio hulls
Pistachio hull contains anacardic acids. It is a salicylic acid with a side chain either saturated or unsaturated. This work focused on the efficient extraction of anacardic acids using solvent. Six aliquots were weighed and extracted with hexane, ethyl acetate, and mixture of H2O/MeOH/HCl. Hexane was the most efficient solvent due to its ability to dissolve the anacardic acids. Only one anacardic acid standard was used...
Ear and eye training: Algorithms for the advanced student of audio, image, and video engineering
A lot of research has been taking place when it comes to audio, image, and video processing. Whereas the algorithms involved are very sophisticated, there is still an issue when they need to be taught to students, mainly because they are difficult to comprehend and they require an experienced trainer to guide the students. This article presents an analysis of two of our algorithms designed for ear and eye training, for...
