Rapid Purification of Tocopherols by Flash Chromatography
28 July 2015

Tocopherols are fat soluble vitamins with antioxidant activity found in most vegetable oils and in many edible plants. However, analysis and purification of tocopherols presents a challenge due to their relatively low concentration and chromatographic similarity to the oil matrix. This application note describes a single-step method using an automated flash chromatography system to remove the tocopherols from the oil matrix.
