This cover film is suppressed in variation in release strength when separated from the carrier tape, and is capable of reducing problems in the mounting process of electronic components such as rupture of the cover film during the separation..
|Polarizing plate and liquid crystal display device|
A polarizing plate includes, in the following order: a transparent protective film; an adhesive layer; and a polarizer, and the transparent protective film has a thickness of from 5 to 60 μm and contains at least one resin and a compound (a) having at least one hydrogen bond-forming hydrogen-donating group and a ratio of a molecular weight to an aromatic ring number of 190 or less.. .
|Methods of decreasing sebum production in the skin|
Provided herein are methods of using gaseous nitric oxide and/or at least one nitric oxide source to or decrease sebum production in the skin of a subject. In some embodiments, the nitric oxide source includes small molecule and/or macromolecular no-releasing compounds,.
