Xheme, Inc. and the University of Bologna to Present on New Antioxidant Technology That Stops Auto-Oxidation in Its Tracks at the First International Conference on Antioxidants

Xheme, Inc. and the University of Bologna announced today that they will be presenting on a promising additive with a novel auto-oxidation inhibition mechanism at the First International Conference on Antioxidants in Barcelona, Spain on Friday, May 12, 2023.

Lipid peroxidation represents a major hurdle in fields ranging from food storage to biomedical applications. Many antioxidant strategies have been put forward to address this challenge. Interest first focused on the use of synthetic additives, but more recently it has turned to natural inhibitors—such as essential oils—with a food-grade or GRAS status, especially for food and pharmaceutical applications. Antioxidants present in oregano and citrus essential oils have demonstrated antioxidant activity but are also unstable and degrade quickly. Adding the inorganic Xheme Nano Additive to organic additives that release gamma-terpene—such as oregano and citrus essential oils—reduces oxidation without degradation, can be incorporated into packaging, and will not migrate into protected material.

These findings are important to understand the mechanism of the antioxidant activity of nanomaterials and for future practical exploitation of the potential antioxidant activity of essential oils. The discovery has multiple technological applications, such as reducing the oxidation under
an air of varnishes and paints, avoiding rubber perishing, and protecting oils and food from going rancid or spoiling. Patents for the joint technology for polymers, resins, plastics, and packaging materials have been applied for: #17/664,253 and #17/817,858.
