Laboratory for qualitatively and quantitatively characterization of molecules and proteins in food and plant matrices

Research activities of the Laboratory of NMR Spectroscopy are mainly focused on the qualitatively and quantitatively characterization of a variety of molecules (from small molecules to large proteins present in food and biological matrices) using high-resolution NMR methods. NMR Spectroscopy provides a fast and extremely powerful method for “fingerprint’’ identification of compounds in complex matrices as well as a tool for determining structure and dynamics of low-, intermediate-molecular weight biomolecules. Our research is primarily focused on the field of food chemistry and natural products of our territory, by exploiting NMR spectroscopy as a powerful method in the field of food quality, authenticity and typicity purposes, and determination of origin of agricultural products.
