  • Making use of anthocyanin copigmentation, it is possible to effectively improve color quality and stability of red wines and other foods. This can be done by selecting strong copigments, but a 1-fold experimental screening usually entails a high cost and a low efficiency. The aim of this work is to show how a theoretical model based on density functional theory can be useful for an accurate and rapid prediction of copigmentation ability of a copigment. The present study, concerning the… CONTINUE READING
