The study of the putative health benefits of plant-derived polyphenolic compounds is an active research area in food chemistry. HPLC and LC-MS play an important role in the characterization of plant extracts, and both benefit from the sensitivity and resolving power provided by highly efficient Ascentis Express HPLC columns. These columns, along with our sample prep products and analytical standards, have been used to analyze a wide-range of nutraceuticals, such as vanillin, catechin, resveratrol, Withania, ginsenosides, taxols, steroildal glycosides, digoxins, silymarin, phytonutrients, spice cannabinoids, flavonoids, catechols, resorcinals, ephedrine alkaloids, hyerpericum, and tamoxifen.
