The development of a simple electrochemical method based on molecularly imprinted polymers for the selective determination of caffeic acid in wine

Abstract

Caffeic acid (CA) is an antioxidant of great importance in the food sector, such as wine, where it acts as a marker of wine ageing, as well as in the health sector due to its antioxidant properties and beneficial effects including the prevention of inflammation, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and diabetes. A simple and fast electrochemical method was developed for the determination of caffeic acid in a hydroalcoholic medium, based on a molecular imprinted polymer (MIP) in order to highlight the specificity and selectivity of the polymer. A MIP specific to CA was synthesized by the radical polymerization process, using N-phenylacrylamide (N-PAA), tetraethoxysilane (TEOS), ethylene glycol dimerhacrylate (EGDMA) and azobisisobutyronitrile (AIBN) in the presence of CA as template molecule and under thermal conditions (60°C). Screen-printed carbon electrodes were used in the electrochemical measurements without any pre-treatment or modification of their surface, in order to ensure the simplicity of the method. Cyclic voltammograms were applied at a scan rate of 50mV/s, from -0.4 to 0.8 V, and showed that, at pH3, the polymer presented good stability and repeatability regarding CA determination. In addition, it exhibited high selectivity towards CA compared to other interferents with similar structures. Furthermore, the polymer was successfully tested for the detection of CA in wine.

A applied viticultural zoning, based on the “secteurs de la reference” methodology, in the Cognac vineyard (France)

Dans les Charentes, en réponse à une crise de production du vignoble destiné à la production de Cognac, un plan de diversification viticole pour des vins de pays de qualité est mis en place. Il nécessite une connaissance des sols et de leurs caractéristiques viticoles pour orienter le choix des types de vins et adapter l’itinéraire technique de production.

Rootstock effects on cv. Ugni blanc berry and wine composition

In the Cognac region in France, Ugni blanc is the most planted grape variety (98% of the 80 500 ha). This vine region is in expansion due to the success of the associated well-known brandy and the need of high grape yield to guarrantee the production of base wine for distillation. About 2 to 3000 ha are newly planted each year and rootstocks are one powerfull tool for vineyard adaptation to soil or climate change. As rootstocks ensure water and mineral nutrient supplies to the scion, it is important to better understand their effect on berry compostionnal parameters such as sugars and nitrogen compounds, which are the main precursors for fermentary aroma metabolites, the latter being quality markers for Cognac after distillation.

PAIRING WINE AND STOPPER: AN OLD ISSUE WITH NEW ACHIEVEMENTS

The sensory characteristics of wine are a topic studied by several researchers over time, but it continues to be a current and challenging subject. These characteristics are fundamental for the consumer acceptability, which has increasingly aroused their interest to modulate them in line with current market trends and innovation demands. The wine physical-chemical and sensory properties depend on a wide set of factors: they begin to be designed in the vineyard and are later constructed during the various stages of winemaking. Afterwards, the wine is placed in bottles and stored or commercialized.

Testing the pathogen e-learning and field training course on grapevine virus knowledge and management

One of the reasons of the spread of grapevine virus diseases in
vineyards around the world is the lack of knowledge by the main actors of the wine sector. To face this problem, five partners worked together to develop the PAThOGEN project, a training program aimed to improve grapevine virus knowledge and management. The partnership gathers one French technical center (IFV), one Spanish university (USC), one Italian applied research center (CREA), one Spanish foundation
specialized in training and technology transfer (FEUGA) and one Italian SME specialized in the development of informatics tools and in knowledge transfer (HORTA).The objectives of PAThOGEN are: (i) to develop and
maintain a high-quality work-based Vocational and Education Training program, (ii) to improve the skills of professionals of the wine sector.
