Thin Layer Chromatography in Phytochemistry is the first source devoted to supplying state-of-the-art information on TLC as it applies to the separation, identification, quantification, and isolation of medicinal plant components. Renowned scientists working with laboratories around the world demonstrate the applicability of TLC to a remarkable diversity of fields including plant genetics, drug discovery, nutraceuticals, and toxicology.
Elucidates the role of plant materials in the pharmaceutical industry...
Part I provides a practical review of techniques, relevant materials, and the particular demands for using TLC in phytochemical applications. The text explains how to determine the biological activity of metabolites and assess the effectiveness of herbal medicines and nutritional supplements. Part II concentrates on TLC methods used to analyze specific plant-based metabolite classes such as carbohydrates, proteins, alkaloids, flavonoids, terpenes, etc. Organized by compound type, each chapter discusses key topics such as sample preparation, plate development, zone detection, densitometry, and biodetection.
Demonstrates practical methods that can be applied to a wide range of disciplines...
From identification to commercial scale production and quality control, Thin Layer Chromatography in Phytochemistry is an essential bench-top companion and reference on using TLC for the study of plant-based bioactive compounds.
