Compounds in Olive Leaves Extract
A commercial Olive Extract was analyzed using the Cogent Phenyl Hydride Column. Only one Oleuropein Peak was detected and it was Symmetrical and well Retained. The results were reproducible (%RSD = 0.2 for Retention Times).
According to the literature  the extract from Olive leaves should contain additional compounds. To confirm that the extract doesn’t contain these compounds, spiked Olive leaves extract was analyzed. All these reported, Phenolic compounds were detected and Separated.
