ABSTRACT
Propanol appeared better than ethanol for the long-term
storage of spinach leaves, followed by hexanol and pentanol. The
lowest molecular weight and yields of DNA came from spinach stored
in methanol and ethanol. In an experiment with spinach leaves stored
in 100, 95, 70, 50 and 25% ethanol, the 50% ethanol stored leaves
