Sustainable synthetic aopproaches for natural products and their analogues of biointerest (lignans, glycosides, nucleosides)
Photochemistry of bioactive compounds (drugs, pesticides)
Isolation and structural characterization of secondary metabolites
The research ofSCFgroup, based on the different and complementary experiences of their components, is in the field of organic chemistry, mainly in the development of new sustainable synthetic methodologies for bioactive natural products (lignans, glycosides, nucleosides) and/or their analogues.
Another research line is focused on the study of the action of light and oxygen, mediated by natural or synthetic sensitizers, on bioactive molecules and/or pollutants (pesticides, phenolic derivatives, drugs), with particular attention to the investigation of photochemical mechanisms and isolation and characterization of photoproducts.
One member of the group (Della Greca) has a long-lasting experience in the field of isolation and structural characterization of natural substances from plants and, recently, from fungi. Such studies are finalized to find new allelochemicals as alternative to synthetic pesticides.
Collaborations are constantly active with national or international research groups working in other disciplines as biology, ecotoxicology, pharmacy to test the synthetized or isolated products.
