Separation from Matrix Peaks

The main peak (Oleuropein) was observed to be well Separated from matrix components in this HPLC based approach. This Method is useful for analysts that are not using LCMS and therefore need good Chromatographic Separation in order to perform accurate Quantitation. The matrix Peaks do not co-elute with the main Peak, which is required for UV-based Methods. The Method is highly reproducible (5-run overlay shown in the Figure below).

Note: Olive Leaves are food byproducts (after pruning of olive trees) which are full of bioactive compounds. These compounds are potent polyphenols, which show antibacterial, antiviral, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant activities. Different extraction procedures are used for selective extraction of polyphenols from olive leaves. An analytical method to monitor and evaluate the resulting extract is needed.
