Comparison of Natural Product Isolation Techniques

Alvin Sherman Library 2053

Isolation techniques are used to separate compounds from a mixture. Natural products are isolated by a variety of methods depending on the property of the compound being isolated. This study attempted to evaluate isolation techniques and their efficiency and applicability. Two isolation techniques were used on five natural product samples that often possess medicinal uses. The two techniques were extraction with methylene chloride and simple distillation. The isolated products were partially characterized with the use of IR spectroscopy.
