The Effective Catalyst (Cobalt Salt/Lewis Acid) for Beckmann Rearrangement of Cycloalkanone Oximes to Lactams under Mild Conditions  [PDF]
Masahiro Komeda, Ayana Ozaki, Keita Hayashi, Michinori Sumimoto, Kenji Hori, Tsunemi Sugimoto, Hidetoshi Yamamoto
International Journal of Organic Chemistry (IJOC) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ijoc.2015.52007
Abstract: The Beckmann rearrangement of cyclohexanone oxime was achieved by the combined use of cobalt salt and Lewis acids co-catalysts (each 10 mol%). Various combinations of cobalt salts and Lewis acids gave lactams in a satisfactory yield under mild conditions. This method makes it possible to reduce undesirable byproducts.
Low Environmental Load Process for the Beckmann Rearrangement of Cycloalkanone Oximes by Br?nsted Acid Catalyst with Cobalt Salts  [PDF]
Hidetoshi Yamamoto, Masahiro Komeda, Ayana Ozaki, Michinori Sumimoto, Kenji Hori, Tsunemi Sugimoto
International Journal of Organic Chemistry (IJOC) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ijoc.2015.53016
Abstract: Beckmann rearrangements of oximes to lactams often require harsh conditions and/or the use of large amounts of acid catalyst. To reduce the amount of Bronsted acid required, and to avoid the formation of a large amount of undesirable byproducts under mild reaction conditions, a low environmental load process was developed. Beckmann rearrangements of cyclohexanone oxime and cyclooctanone oxime were achieved using a combination of a Bronsted acid and cobalt tetra-fluoroborate hexahydrate. Various Bronsted acid catalysts (10 - 20 mol%) were used to obtain the corresponding lactams in high yields at 80℃.
On the Convergence of Observed Partial Likelihood under Incomplete Data with Two Class Possibilities  [PDF]
Tomoyuki Sugimoto
Open Journal of Statistics (OJS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojs.2014.42012

In this paper, we discuss the theoretical validity of the observed partial likelihood (OPL) constructed in a Coxtype model under incomplete data with two class possibilities, such as missing binary covariates, a cure-mixture model or doubly censored data. A main result is establishing the asymptotic convergence of the OPL. To reach this result, as it is difficult to apply some standard tools in the survival analysis, we develop tools for weak convergence based on partial-sum processes. The result of the asymptotic convergence shown here indicates that a suitable order of the number of Monte Carlo trials is less than the square of the sample size. In addition, using numerical examples, we investigate how the asymptotic properties discussed here behave in a finite sample.

The Radial Structure of the Cygnus Loop Supernova Remnant --- Possible evidence of a cavity explosion ---
Emi Miyata,Hiroshi Tsunemi
Physics , 1999, DOI: 10.1086/307870
Abstract: We observed the North-East (NE) Limb toward the center region of the Cygnus Loop with the ASCA Observatory. We found a radial variation of electron temperature (kTe) and ionization timescale (log(\tau)) whereas no variation could be found for the abundances of heavy elements. In this paper, we re-analyzed the same data set and new observations with the latest calibration files. Then we constructed the precise spatial variations of kTe, log(\tau), and abundances of O, Ne, Mg, Si, and Fe over the field of view (FOV). We found a spatial variation not only in kTe and in log(\tau) but also in most of heavy elements. As described in Miyata et al. (1994), values of kTe increase and those of log(\tau) decrease toward the inner region. We found that the abundance of heavy elements increases toward the inner region. The radial profiles of O, Ne, and Fe show clear jump structures at a radius of 0.9 Rs, where Rs is the shock radius. Outside of 0.9 Rs, abundances of all elements are constant. On the contrary, inside of 0.9 Rs, abundances of these elements are 20--30 % larger than those obtained outside of 0.9 Rs. The radial profile of kTe also shows the jump structure at 0.9 Rs. This means that the hot and metal rich plasma fills the volume inside of 0.9 Rs. We concluded that this jump structure was the possible evidence for the pre-existing cavity produced by the precursor. If the ejecta fills inside of 0.9 Rs, the total mass of the ejecta was roughly 4\Msun. We then estimated the main-sequence mass to be roughly 15\Msun, which supports the massive star in origin of the Cygnus Loop supernova remnant and the existence of a pre-existing cavity.
Reflection Shocked Gas in the Cygnus Loop Supernova Remnant
Emi Miyata,Hiroshi Tsunemi
Physics , 2001, DOI: 10.1086/320564
Abstract: We performed spectroscopic X-ray observations of the eastern and northern regions of the Cygnus Loop with the ASCA observatory. The X-ray surface brightness of these regions shows a complex structure in the ROSAT all-sky survey image. We carried out a spatially-resolved analysis for both regions and found that $kT_{\rm e}$ did not increase toward the center region, but showed inhomogeneous structures. Such variation cannot be explained by a blast wave model propagating into a homogeneous interstellar medium. We thus investigated the interaction between a blast wave and an interstellar cloud. Two major emission mechanisms are plausible: a cloud evaporation model and a reflection shock model. In both regions, only a reflection shock model qualitatively explains our results. Our results suggest the existence of a large-scale interstellar cloud. We suppose that such a large-scale structure would be produced by a precursor.
Role of STAT3 in inflammatory bowel disease
Ken Sugimoto
World Journal of Gastroenterology , 2008,
Abstract: Signal transducers and activators of transcription 3 (STAT3) play an important role in various autoimmune disorders including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Recent studies have revealed that STAT3 activation plays distinctly different roles between innate immune responses and acquired immune responses in colitis. STAT3-mediated activation of acquired immune responses plays a pathogenic role in colitis by enhancing the survival of pathogenic T cells. In contrast, STAT3-mediated activation of innate responses contributes to the suppression of colitis. This review will summarize the current understanding of the roles of STAT3 in IBD and the potential of targeting STAT3 for the treatment of IBD, emphasizing recent observations.
Comments on Duality in MQCD
Shigeki Sugimoto
Physics , 1998, DOI: 10.1143/PTP.100.123
Abstract: We clarify some ambiguous points in a derivation of duality via brane exchange using M-theory language, and propose a ``proof'' of duality in MQCD. Actually, duality in MQCD is rather trivial and does not need a complicated proof. The problem is how to interpret it in field theory language. We examine BPS states in N=2 theory and find the particle correspondence under duality. In the process, we also find some exotic particles in N=2 MQCD, and we observe an interesting phenomenon in type IIA string theory, namely, that fundamental strings are converted into D2-branes via the exchange of two NS5-branes. We also discuss how we should understand Seiberg's N=1 duality from exact duality in MQCD.
Anomaly Cancellations in the Type I D9-anti-D9 System and the USp(32) String Theory
Shigeki Sugimoto
Physics , 1999, DOI: 10.1143/PTP.102.685
Abstract: We check some consistency conditions for the D9-anti-D9 system in type I string theory. The gravitational anomaly and gauge anomaly for SO(n) x SO(m) gauge symmetry are shown to be cancelled when n-m=32. In addition, we find that a string theory with USp(n) x USp(m) gauge symmetry also satisfies the anomaly cancellation conditions. After tachyon condensation, the theory reduces to a tachyon-free USp(32) string theory, though there is no spacetime supersymmetry.
Tiling Problem: Convex Pentagons for Edge-to-Edge Monohedral Tiling and Convex Polygons for Aperiodic Tiling
Teruhisa Sugimoto
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: We show that convex pentagons that can generate edge-to-edge monohedral tilings of the plane can be classified into exactly eight types. Using these results, it is also proved that no single convex polygon can be an aperiodic prototile without matching conditions other than "edge-to-edge."
Species Delimitation and Morphological Divergence in the Scorpion Centruroides vittatus (Say, 1821): Insights from Phylogeography
Tsunemi Yamashita, Douglas D. Rhoads
PLOS ONE , 2013, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0068282
Abstract: Scorpion systematics and taxonomy have recently shown a need for revision, partially due to insights from molecular techniques. Scorpion taxonomy has been difficult with morphological characters as disagreement exists among researchers with character choice for adequate species delimitation in taxonomic studies. Within the family Buthidae, species identification and delimitation is particularly difficult due to the morphological similarity among species and extensive intraspecific morphological diversity. The genus Centruroides in the western hemisphere is a prime example of the difficulty in untangling the taxonomic complexity within buthid scorpions. In this paper, we present phylogeographic, Ecological Niche Modeling, and morphometric analyses to further understand how population diversification may have produced morphological diversity in Centruroides vittatus (Say, 1821). We show that C. vittatus populations in the Big Bend and Trans-Pecos region of Texas, USA are phylogeographically distinct and may predate the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). In addition, we suggest the extended isolation of Big Bend region populations may have created the C. vittatus variant once known as C. pantheriensis.
