Researcher Activities

Florinda Fratianni has always collaborated with the research unit of Biotechnology and Food Safety at Institute of Food Science and Technology-CNR in Avellino, Italy, she is a researcher only since 31/12/2013.

In all these years she has mainly worked on the qualitative and quantitative evaluation of some important biochemical parameters of foods. in fact she has considerable expertise in spectrophotometric procedures to evaluate polyphenols, lycopene, beta carotene, antioxidant activity (DPPH, FRAP, ABTS) and hydroperoxides content; knowledge of chromatographic methods for the evaluation of phenolic compounds (UPLC / HPLC) in addition to evaluation of the content of vitamins, anthocyanins, glucosinolates, allicin by HPLC, as well as protein and lipid extraction electrophoretic and chromatographic procedures to monitor the soluble N fraction and finally microbiology bases.

She has participated to different research projects, concerning food chemistry and safety.

She is author of publications on national and international journal and of different book chapters.
