Biosynthesis of Cannabinoids

Time: 11:30 am
day: Day One Track B - morning


  • Discuss the creation, characterization, and stress-testing of a robust cannabidiol nanoemulsion created using GRAS (generally recognized as safe) ingredients
  • Examine how in a follow-up study, the energy-intensive homogenization step associated with nanoemulsion formation, which requires a specialized instrument leading to higher cost, will be replaced by a solventassisted homogenization protocol, producing a stable emulsion that can then be freeze-dried or spray-dried to form water-redispersible powder formulations
  • Explore the design, synthesis, and nanoformulationrelated applications of novel polyphenol-protein conjugate emulsifiers with intrinsic antioxidant properties
