Research area(s): Phytochemistry, Chemistry of Bioactive Compounds from Vegetal Origin

Current research focus: Our interest lies in substances of vegetable origin potentially therapeutic. Based on ethnobotanical knowledge and bioassay-guided fractionation of extracts we are engaged in the search for substances useful in inflammation, thrombosis, diabetes and parasitic diseases. Our group has extensive experience in the isolation and characterization of phenolic compounds, especially flavonoids, using chromatography and analytical methods for structural elucidation (NMR, UV, IR and MS).
