Isolation of polyprenols from tobacco and their separation by adopting new chromatographic techniques*


In recent times polyprenols attract the attention of bio-chemists because of their significant value as source of isoprene units for the synthesis of metabolically active quinones and Vitamin K analogues. The present investigative study aims at the isolation of solanesol a polyprenol from tobacco. The principle of isolation includes the extraction at 50oC… (More)
