The influence of a series of organic solvents on the UV-VIS spectra of hot red pepper extracts was studied by implementing solvatochromic theory. As a part of our efforts to interpret the effects of solvent polarity and hydrogen bonding on the absorption spectra of extracted capsaicin and capsanthin, the study design was based on the linear solvation energy relationship (LSER) concept usingKamlet-Taft and Catalan solvatochromic multiparameter approach. Accordingly, by dividing the solvents into… CONTINUE READING
