- Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol found in various plants, mainly in the bark of the red grapes. It has been widely studied due to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer and anti-aging properties. The thermal behavior of resveratrol was investigated by using simultaneous thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry (TG-DSC), evolved gas analysis (TG-DSC-FTIR) and High-resolution mass spectra (HRMS). The results provided information concerning the thermal stability, thermal decomposition, identification of the main gaseous products evolved and intermediate compounds formed during the thermal decomposition.
