The aim of food chemistry is to gain insight into the molecular composition of foods and to identify their biofunctional, physiological and technological properties. Thereto, bioanalytical and instrumental methods as well as biochemical and cytological procedures are used. The combination of food chemistry with pharmaceutical technology and medicinal chemistry builds a molecular bridge between the departments of medicine, of natural science and of technical science at the university of Erlangen-Nuremberg.
