Biological Activities of Essential Oils
In the modern sustainable industries, the “green products”, based on natural compounds, are of a highest importance. From this standpoint, essential oils are considered the most widely used natural products in many areas. Most of them have been used as fragrance, flavoring agents or as medicines since ancient times. Nowadays, a renaissance of the research on essential oils in the traditional, but also new industries, is observed. The essential oils are extensively studied to treat various human ailments, but also for crop protection, as so-called botanical pesticides. This conference aims to give an overview of the modern biological applications and activities of essential oils. Also, their phytochemistry and ecophysiological significances will be discussed.

The conference venue is unique. Located right next to the Orléans’ cathedral, the episcopal palace of Orléans, built between 1635 and 1641, locally known as the Hôtel Dupanloup, is a classical French building which served until 1905 of residence to the bishops of Orléans. Since 2014, the renewed palace hosts the International University Center for Research and Le Studium Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies.
Participants will be welcomed in this exceptional surrounding, blending Middle Age and Renaissance cultures with modern design and will have the opportunity to discover French cuisine and wines.
