Droplet counter current chromatography of the carotenoids of parsleyPetroselinum crispum

Summary

The application of droplet counter current chromatography to the separation of the carotenoids of parsley, β-carotene, lutein, violaxanthin and neoxanthin, is described. The solvent system consists of petroleum spirit bp 40–60°C: acetonitrile: methanol in the proportions 50∶10∶40. The upper layer is used as the mobile phase and the lower layer as the stationary phase.
