Summary Present study describes the determination of nicotine in various plant samples with a low content of this compound. Nicotine is found naturally in plants from the Solanaceae family. The plants from Nicotiana genus contain large levels of nicotine. However, only low levels are present in plants from Solanum genus including potato, tomato, eggplant, and from Capsicum genus, which are used as food. Because the levels of nicotine in these materials are in the range of parts per billion, the… Expand

Determination of Nicotine Extracted from Eggplant and Green Pepper by HPLC
Nicotine was separated from eggplant and green pepper seeds (Solanaceous) by High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC).The concentration of nicotine in the eggplant extract (0.871-0.877 μg/ml)Expand
HILIC HPLC-ESI-MS/MS identification and quantification of the alkaloids from the genus Equisetum.
All Equisetum species occurring worldwide were successfully subjected to a detailed qualitative and quantitative alkaloid analysis using a newly developed HILIC-HPLC-ESIpos-MS/MS approach, which can be used to distinguish different Equisettum-chemotypes. Expand
Pyrrolidine alkaloids and their promises in pharmacotherapy
Pyrrolidine alkaloids can be some of the best sources of pharmacologically active lead compounds and have shown to possess several important biological activities, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic and anthelmintic. Expand
Application of Novel Pyrolysis Reactor Technology to Concentrate Bio-oil Components with Antioxidant Activity from Tobacco, Tomato and Coffee Ground Biomass
To make biomass conversion to fuels more cost-effective, value-added products, including pharmaceuticals, should be produced from agricultural residues. The objectives of this study were (1) toExpand
Simple Purification of Nicotiana benthamiana-Produced Recombinant Colicins: High-Yield Recovery of Purified Proteins with Minimum Alkaloid Content Supports the Suitability of the Host for Manufacturing Food Additives
A simple and inexpensive purification method based on specific acidic extraction followed by one chromatography step is described that allows production of the colicin products at a commercially viable cost of goods and might be broadly applicable to other cost-sensitive proteins. Expand
Complex estimation system for smokeless nicotine containing products
Smokeless nicotine containing products are very diverse and offered in flavored tobacco/non tobacco forms, packed in portioned sachets of different mass, dimensions, and colors, with differentExpand
Plant‐derived protein bodies as delivery vehicles for recombinant proteins into mammalian cells
Fluorescent PBs show that fluorescent PBs were efficiently internalized into intestinal epithelial cells and antigen‐presenting cells (APCs) at a higher rate than polystyrene beads of comparable size, and zein fusion proteins stimulated cytokine secretion by epithelial Cells, a characteristic that may confer vaccine adjuvant activities through the recruitment of APCs.

Determination of the nicotine content of various edible nightshades (Solanaceae) and their products and estimation of the associated dietary nicotine intake.
A distributive analysis of the results suggests that the mean daily dietary nicotine intake for the population of the countries for which consumption data were available is approximately 1.4 microg/day, 2.25 microG/day at the 95th percentile. Expand
Detection of Nicotine in Foods and Plant Materials
Nicotine at several ppm was detected in the dehydrated fresh produce of the Solanaceae species including tomato, potato peel, eggplant and green pepper. Its identity was verified by GLC, TLC andExpand
Dietary nicotine: a source of urinary cotinine.
Because of the potential for exposure to nicotine by way of these routes, the use of urinary cotinine as a biomarker of exposure to environmental tobacco smoke may be compromised. Expand
Analysis of Minor Alkaloids in Tobacco: A Collaborative Study
Abstract A collaborative study regarding the analysis of minor alkaloids in tobacco and tobacco products was initiated by the Analytical Methods Committee of the Tobacco Science Research ConferenceExpand
The nicotine content of common vegetables.
There is considerable evidence that nicotine is present in certain human foods, especially plants from the family Solanaceae (such as potatoes, tomatoes, and eggplant), and the presence of nicotine and its metabolite cotinine in the body fluids of nonsmokers is usually taken as evidence of exposure to environmental tobacco smoke.

Determination of Nicotine in Dried Mushrooms by Using a Modified QuEChERS Approach and GC–MS–MS
Levels of nicotine higher than the maximum residue level were detected in edible mushrooms. Analyses of self-collected and purchased dried mushrooms were performed with a QuEChERS approach. A smallExpand
Comparison of methods for extraction of tobacco alkaloids.
The ultrasonic and the proposed modified-AOAC extraction method were the more convenient with regard to practicability and precision. Expand
Comparison of Methods for Extraction of Tobacco Alkaloids
Ultrasound and microwave techniques were used to extract tobacco alkaloids, and response surface methodology was used to optimize extraction conditions. Ultrasonic technique factors were temperature,Expand
Development of a simple sample preparation technique for gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric determination of nicotine in edible nightshades (Solanaceae).
The purpose of this study was to develop a rapid analytical method for the reliable determination of low concentrations of nicotine in foods for large numbers of samples using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Expand
