Evaluation of different chromatographic techniques for resolution of pigments in extract from annatto (Bixa orellana L.) seeds



Evaluation of different chromatographic techniques for resolution of pigments in extract from annatto (Bixa orellana L.) seeds



Journal of Dairying, Foods and Home Sciences 17(3/4): 211-215



Chromatographic techniques such as paper, column and thin-layer (TLC) were employed for resolving pigments of annatto seeds. The TLC technique on a silica gel G layer in a solvent system consisting of chloroform, ethanol and acetic acid (80:2:1, v/v) gave the best performance.
