Rosmarinic acid is a natural product widely spread over different plant families. Preparative reversed-phase chromatography was used for the mass-directed purification of rosmarinic acid from a lemon balm extract. The AZURA® Prep System together with the 4000 MiD mass spectrometer was showed to be well suited for this application.
