November 3 – December 2. A senior researcher and head of Agrobiology Laboratory Dr. Karolina Barčauskaitė attended an internship at Wrocław University of Environmental and Life Sciences, Poland. The research under the ongoing postdoctoral fellowship project “Influence of agrotechnological measures on the phytochemical composition of fibrous hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) in morphological parts of the plant” was carried out.
During the internship, investigations on secondary metabolites in fibre hemp leaves and inflorescences were performed. The profile of volatile compounds, the composition of essential oils, the content of cannabinoids and the qualitative and quantitative analysis of fatty acids were carried out. The researcher’s analytical skills in GC-MS were improved. The obtained results will be publicized in joint publications.
