Abstract

Seven solvent systems of varying suitability are reported for the thin-layer chromatographic separation of lantadenes isolated from the heptatotoxic plant Lantana camara var. aculeata. Hexane-methanol-ethyl acetate (85:10:5) was found to be the most suitable for the separation of lantadene A, B, C, D, reduced lantadene A and reduced lantadene B. Lantadenes could be detected on thin layers of silica gel G using Liebermann-Burchard reagent, vanillin-sulphuric acid and primulin sprays.
