Attempt to utilize A380 : A330 ratio to select for hydrocyanic acid potential in sudangrass



Attempt to utilize A380 : A330 ratio to select for hydrocyanic acid potential in sudangrass



Sorghum Newsletter 28: 26



Whereas the 330 nm spectral peak which represents p-hydroxybenzaldehyde, a hydrolysis product of the cyanogenic glycoside dhurrin, has been used effectively as an indicator of HCN potential in Sorghum bicolor seedlings, this peak is less clearly defined in low-HCN S. sudanense extracts and often suffers spectral interference from the 380 nm peak, which may be much higher in this material.
