Methods for the separation of limonoids from citrus Conference Paper uri icon


  • Limonoids are naturally occurring triterpenes found in Rutaceae and Meliaceae family plants. Many citrus limonoids have proved to be particularly difficult to purify using conventional methods. This chapter provides an overview of the methods used to extract and purify limonoid aglycones and limonoid glucosides from citrus, including solid liquid extraction, column chromatography, preparative HPLC and flash chromatography. Furthermore, recent literature on analytical methods such as HPLC and LC-MS for the separation and identification of limonoids have been discussed. © 2006 American Chemical Society.
