Series of talks related to the isolation, synthesis, characterization and evaluation of chemical compounds with antioxidant activity. Additionally, discuss the necessary studies for industrial scale production of these compounds or natural extracts rich in antioxidants.

In this proposal, is intends to conduct a meeting to address issues related to in vitro or in vivo studies of chemical and phytochemicals antioxidants. In studies of phytochemicals and chemicals phenolics has been determined that there is a direct relationship between the structure of phenolic compounds and their antioxidant activity. Today there are antioxidant compounds that are added to food or polymeric materials to prolong his life. Some examples of these compounds are BHT and BHA are used in a myriad of processed foods. Flavonoids are a group of phytochemicals with phenol structure that are being marketed as antioxidants and promoters of anti-cancer properties. This may be the background of a more extensive analysis of recent studies in the area of antioxidants.
