One Day Symposium Focussing on Advances in Natural Product Analysis

Nov 22 2013

The Chromatographic Society has announced a one day symposium focussing on advances in natural product analysis, titled 'Separating the Wheat from the Chaff', to be held as Syngenta Research Labs on April 9th 2014.

Chromatographic and mass spectrometric analysis in vegetable matter, natural and food products will be explored by specialists from a variety of industries and an exhibition of analytical instrumentation and presentations by leading manufacturers will form an important element of the symposium. 

Special guest speakers include:

  • Professor Pat Sandra - The Research Institute for Chromatography (R.I.C.), aspects of advanced chromatography in food safety analysis.
  • Professor Sandra has a wealth of chromatographic and analytical experience speaking with great authority whether it is around techniques or applications.
  • Paul Russell (Unilever) - Natural product analysis - challenges and the use of statistical data analysis to characterise and demonstrate consistency. A food industry point of view from the growing use of natural product extracts in food and flavour applications.
  • Robin Clery (Natural Products Group, Fragrance Research, Dübendorf, Givaudan Schweiz AG) – 'Impact odourants in natural products - how to know what the nose knows'. The techniques and applications in detecting and measuring trace flavour and aroma impact materials.
  • Geoff Kite (Kew Gardens, London) – Geoff will present his work on flavonoid analysis by LC and LCMS and discuss the difficulties around correctly identifying these species which often predominate in plant extracts.

Syngenta’s scientific staff are also supporting the meeting with the following presentations from three of their scientists:

  • Phil Clarke presents: 'How U is Your UHPLC?'; 
  • Brian Kemp present: 'Isolating the needle from the haystack'; and
  • Aniko Kende present: 'Carotenoids in vegetables – they’re good for you'.
