Chemical characterization, isolation and fractionation of bark CT

Research goal To determine the CT concentration and their chemical characteristics in bark from various processing methods and seasons, and to develop a scalable extraction process Leader: SINTEF Materials and Chemistry

The CT in bark varies in quantity and quality. In the BarkCure project, we will test different ways to extract CT. Samples showing promising antiparasitic properties, will be further characterized, fractionated and tested biologically in the laboratory to find those extracts with the strongest antiparasitic effect.  Based on the biological tests (see activity 3 and 4), structure and quantities
