Exploring the molecular diversity of grape, a source of natural ingredients

Grapevines and their byproducts produce a broad range of specialized metabolites, including flavonoid- and stilbenoid-type compounds, that exhibit diverse biological activities highly sought by biomass-based industries. Among the large molecular diversity present in grape, only few lead molecules are exploited. This is the case for resveratrol; currently exploited as food supplements and cosmetics ingredient for its anti-aging properties and for oligomeric pro-anthocyanidins (OPCs) that are used for several health purposes including the prevention of cardiac and Alzheimer diseases. Beyond these two well-known lead molecules, grapevine is a natural source for a myriad of other biomass-derived molecules that remains underexplored. The objective of the present workshop is to build-up a transversal platform for the development of novel grape biomass-derived chemicals with outputs in pharmacy, cosmetics and sustainable agriculture. Several aspects will be covered in a top-down approach such as impact of climate change on phytochemicals, green extraction technologies, comprehensive analytical tools and biological activities.

This international conference is organised in the framework of the COSMETOSCIENCES ARD 2020 Programme.
