Space-saving preparative HPLC

One manual injection can purify several hundred milligrams of a substance at up to 50 ml/min. Detection takes place via a variable wavelength UV/VIS detector. The intuitive preparative software PurityChrom controls the compact HPLC system and manages fraction collection via a 12-port fractionating valve. Thanks to its compact design, the AZURA Prep Compact system finds its place in every laboratory. Units can easily be stacked.

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.
