    Wine's polyphenols improve semi-conduction. Why? Polyphenols in wine are quantum dots. Quantum dots are particles of semiconductor material only a few nanometres in diameter that have many potential uses. When stimulated by a light source, they fluoresce strongly.

    The French Paradox refers to the contradictory phenomenon whereby the French has few patients with arteriosclerosis and remarkably low mortality from heart disease, despite the fact that they eat a high-fat diet rich in cheese, butter, other dairies, and meat on par with the US and other European countries.

    In addition to red wine polyphenols, we were also looking at the ones in oolong tea. The varieties of polyphenols in oolong tea number in the hundreds or thousands, and there is simply no way to identify everyone—even using modern analytical technologies.

    While being faced with this difficult and complex problem, as research progressed our attention began to shift towards a type of oolong tea polyphenol with a distinctive structure: oolong tea polymerized polyphenols (OTPPs). While the catechin found in green tea is an extremely small polyphenol molecule, research has found that the complex chemical reactions that take place during the special manufacturing process used to make half-fermented oolong tea cause multiple catechin molecules to bind together in a characteristic structure.
