Data on hadron production by e+e- annihilation at c.m. energies between 12 and 36.6 GeV have been collected using the JADE detector. They have been analysed in terms of single-photon and weak neutral-current exchange assuming production of quark-antiquark pairs with only d, u, s, c and b quarks to produce values for the quark weak neutral-current couplings. A further analysis in terms of the Glashow-Salam-Weinberg theory produced the result, sin2θW = 0.22 ± 0.08. The theory has therefore been tested in a new energy domain and within the context of the neutral weak couplings of the first, second and third generation quarks.
