2023 - Research.com Biology and Biochemistry in South Africa Leader Award
Alvaro Viljoen focuses on Antimicrobial, Traditional medicine, Essential oil, Pharmacology and Organic chemistry. Alvaro Viljoen interconnects Officinalis, Ingredient and Biotechnology in the investigation of issues within Antimicrobial. His Traditional medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Indigenous and Botany.
His Essential oil research incorporates elements of Eugenol, Yeast, Cryptococcus neoformans and Staphylococcus aureus. His study in the field of Anti-inflammatory also crosses realms of Sceletium tortuosum and Mesembrenone. His study in the field of Terpene and Trolox is also linked to topics like Biological property.
His main research concerns Traditional medicine, Botany, Essential oil, Antimicrobial and Chromatography. His Traditional medicine study incorporates themes from Indigenous and Pharmacology. His study in Botany focuses on Myrcene, Genus, Rutaceae, Asteraceae and Phytochemistry.
His Essential oil study is related to the wider topic of Food science. His Antimicrobial study is concerned with the larger field of Microbiology. As a part of the same scientific family, Alvaro Viljoen mostly works in the field of Chromatography, focusing on Partial least squares regression and, on occasion, Principal component analysis.
His primary scientific interests are in Traditional medicine, Antimicrobial, Food science, Essential oil and Botany. His work on Phytochemical, Sclerocarya birrea and Croton gratissimus as part of general Traditional medicine research is frequently linked to Health benefits, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His studies examine the connections between Antimicrobial and genetics, as well as such issues in Antibacterial activity, with regards to Combretaceae.
His work deals with themes such as Eugenol, Hexanoic acid and Exudate, which intersect with Food science. His study looks at the relationship between Essential oil and topics such as Gas chromatography, which overlap with Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry. His study in Botany is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ingredient, Palmitic acid, DNA barcoding and Linoleic acid.
Alvaro Viljoen mainly focuses on Traditional medicine, Antimicrobial, Food science, Essential oil and Minimum inhibitory concentration. In his research on the topic of Traditional medicine, Athrixia phylicoides is strongly related with Botany. His Antimicrobial research includes elements of Biofilm, Propolis, Antiseptic and Chrysin.
In general Food science, his work in Ingredient is often linked to Mathematics linking many areas of study. Alvaro Viljoen has included themes like Salvia chamelaeagnea, Gas chromatography, Broth microdilution and Salvia in his Essential oil study. The Gas chromatography study combines topics in areas such as Caryophyllene oxide, Limonene and Germacrene D.
