ANTIOX is a research group from the University of Barcelona run by Prof. Sergi Munné-Bosch. The group is studying the antioxidants obtained from plants such as vitamin E (tocopherols and tocotrienols), vitamin C (ascorbic acid), pro-vitamin A and other carotenoids, flavonoids (anthocyanins) and phenolic diterpenes.
Our research is split in two areas: plant ecophysiology and agri-food biotechnology. Studies on plant ecophysiology focus on mechanisms of abiotic stress tolerance, the ecophysiology of invasive plants, proxies of mortality at the ecosystem level, seed banks, sexual dimorphism in plants, and hormonal profiling.
