Using two-dimensional thin layer chromatography more than 20 constituents have been separated in the extracts of Sri Lanka chillies before and after saponification. Many of these compounds were tentatively identified by co-chromatography with authentic samples and by ultraviolet spectrophotometry.

Mit Hilfe zweidimensionaler Dünnschicht-Chromatographie wurden aus dem Extrakt von Sri Lanka-Paprika vor und nach der Verseifung mehr als zwanzig Komponenten abgetrennt. Viele davon wurden UV-spektrophotometrisch und durch Vergleich ihrer Chromatogramme mit solchen von Testsubstanzen zu identifizieren versucht.
