Centre of Expertise for Plant Compounds

'The Centre of Expertise for Plant Compounds initiates and facilitates the development of new commercial applications for plant compounds in various markets.

The Centre has produced a unique and diverse collection of extracts of over 1,200 plants grown on a commercial basis, such as vegetables, herbs, flowers, trees, bulbs, mushrooms and potted plants. The Library consists of approximately 2,500 crude and cleaned extracts which can be screened for bio-activity and required molecules. This provides targeted opportunities for new product developments with plant compounds for pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, crop protection and feed, food, flavour and fragrances.
