Prof. Dr. Antonio Salatino
My group performs research on chemical ecology, chemotaxonomy and molecular systematics of plants. In addition, research on applied botany focuses on natural waxes, medicinal plants, flavonoids and propolis.

Phenolic Compounds
My group works on the identification and quantification of natural products, with a major focus on phenolic compounds. Two aspects are of our interest: 1. How abiotic (ozone, higher concentrations of CO2) and biotic (plant parasitism and herbivory) stresses could influence the composition and contents of plant phenolic compounds (phenylpropanoids, flavonoids and tannins); 2. Chemical characterization of native Angiosperms with the aim to identify potentially bioactive natural products.

Prof. Dr Deborah Yara Alves Cursino dos Santos
My group analyzes the influence of biotic and abiotic factors on plant metabolism and works on the identification and characterization of bioactive compounds with ecological and economical relevance. We employ techniques of natural products research to characterize signaling molecules and secondary metabolites, with a major focus on native species.

Prof. Dr Marcelo José Pena Ferreira
Natural Products from Plants and Microorganisms
The group studies and describes the metabolome of native plants and endophytic microorganisms, including aspects of isolation, structure elucidation, biosynthesis, bioactivity and biotransformation of the produced secondary metabolites.

Maria Luiza Faria SalatinoProf. Dr Maria Luiza Faria Salatino
The research in my group is focused on i) chemotaxonomy, chemical ecology and molecular systematics of native plant species; and ii) chemical characterization of cuticular waxes, flavonoids and alkanes. Recently, the group incorporated another research topic based on the chemical characterization of propolis and isolation of its bioactive compounds.
