To quantify antioxidants in natural sources, the application of chromatography techniques with different detectors followed by skillful sample preparation is necessary. Analysis of Antioxidant-Rich Phytochemicals is the first book that specifically covers and summarizes the details of sample preparation procedures and methods developed to identify and quantify various types of natural antioxidants in foods. Focusing on the principle of quantification methods for natural antioxidants, the book reviews and summarizes current methods used in the determination of antioxidant-rich phytochemicals in different sources. Chapter by chapter, the distinguished team of authors describes the various methods used for analysis of the different antioxidant-rich phytochemicals – phenolic acids; carotenoids; anthocyanins; ellagitannins, flavonols and flavones; catechins and procyanidins; flavanones; stilbenes; phytosterols; and tocopherols and tocotrienols. Going beyond extensive reviews of the scientific literature, the expert contributors call on their accumulated experience in sample extraction and analysis to outline procedures, identify potential problems in dealing with different samples, and offer trouble-shooting tips for the analysis. Analysis of Antioxidant-Rich Phytochemicals covers the important food applications and health-promoting functions of the major antioxidant phytochemicals, presents general analysis principles and procedures, and systematically reviews and summarizes the various analytical methods necessary for each type of natural antioxidant in different food sources.

Body Vase is a perfect marriage of Gudnason's most prolific inspirations – the human form and the natural and organic. By looking at one of the oldest sources of inspiration in history, the natural world, and combining it with the purity and neutrality of the nude, these photographs explore the diverse range of human emotion and create a new relationship between the figure and the natural world. The photographer aims to present his audience with a new light – to express the banal in a new way. Through this eclectic mixture of classical subject matter, Gudnason has created new compositions with the use of symbolism that fall in line with the history of the nude but grow and progress in fresh and expressive directions.

The State Hermitage Museum founded in 1764 by the Russian Empress Catherine the Great in the heart of historic St. Petersburg occupies an ensemble of magnificent buildings on the bank of the River Neva. The grandest of all is the Winter Palace - the former residence of the Russian tsars - designed by Francesco Bartolomeo Rastrelli. Within the walls of this artistic enclave reside the Hermitage collections, about three million works that trace the development of world art and culture from the Stone Age to today. Throughout the ages people have admired the perfect shapes of flowers and the natural grace of birds. They became the subjects of countless myths and legends; their images have appeared on walls and canvases; their exquisite lines have been borrowed for the creation of jewellery and architecture. The Hermitage's extremely rich collection makes it possible to explore how artists in different countries and eras have treated this eternal theme, striving to capture the fragile harmony and natural perfection of the world's flora and fauna.
