Commercial Rice Extract Analyzed Easily.
Click HERE for Column Ordering Information.

A commercial rice extract was analyzed and peaks were assigned based on retention times and m/z values for the compounds of interest using the Cogent Phenyl Hydride Column . After method validation the developed procedure can be used to evaluate the quality of rice and to develop the best extraction procedure.
