Preparative Isolation of Piperine from Black Pepper Extracts

Find out how AZURA preparative HPLC systems work together hand in hand in one whole process of the method development, purification and purity control of Piperine from black pepper extracts.
Black pepper (piper nigrum) is a widely used hot spice. Furthermore it is used in the traditional medicine1 . Piperine is the main compound leading to bioactivity of black and white pepper. His pungency has been estimated as 100000-200000 Scoville Unit. Piperine is an alkaloid and it is the carboxamide of Piperic acid and Piperidine. It shows low solubility in water, but ethanol and other organic solvent are suitable for solving this substance. In recent decades, Piperine came into the focus of pharmaceutical research. It has antibacterial , antioxidant , anti-inflammatory , antiarthritic and other effects. The most interesting point is that Piperine increases the bioavailability of a number of therapeutic drugs as well as phytochemicals.
