Analysis of enantiomeric flavanones in plant extracts by high-performance liquid chromatography on a cellulose triacetate based chiral stationary phase

  • M. Krause
  • R. Galensa


Flavanones ofArachis hypogaea, Hemizonia increscens, Eriodictyon glutinosum andThymus vulgaris extracts have been stereospecifically analysed by gradient elution on a column of cellulose triacetate supported on silica gel diol. The stereochemistry of naringenin, eriodictyol and homoeriodictyol was in favour of the 2S-configurated flavanones.
