Rapid Analysis of Limonin Citrus Extract Using the Hitachi LaChromUltra® Liquid Chromatography System

Limonin is a flavoring agent which also possesses the ability to suppress cancer formation in certain parts of the body. With the conventional method, the sample run for this compound could take up to 20 minutes. However, using the Hitachi LaChromUltra® U-HPLC system, its run time has been drastically cut by over 60%, while conserving acetonitrile, an increasingly rare commodity.
