The State Key Laboratory of Phytochemistry and Plant Resources in West China focuses on the search for bioactive molecules from natural sources. In this unique research facility, state-of-the-art interdisciplinary natural product research is combined with the screening of the vast biodiversity of the region and local ethnobotanical knowledge to discover compounds which can be developed into new drugs for unmet therapeutic needs and agrochemicals that do not harm the environment.

The Laboratory officially received accreditation as a CAS key laboratory in 2001 and already it has produced an astonishing volume of scientific paper published, patents and intellectual property rights for new drugs, making it a leader in the field of Phytochemistry in China and the world.

 

Main field of research:

  • Biofunctions and chemical composition of secondary metabolic products from non-tradition sources.
  • Medicinal constituents of plants and their bioactivity.
  • Bioactive substances of Higher Fungi of China.
  • New drugs and lead compounds from natural sources.
  • Structure and high selectivity of natural products.
  • Plant cyclopeptides.
  • Organic pesticides.
  • Chemical ecology
