Optimisation of the Method for the Quantitative Determination of Sulforaphane in Broccoli

Conference:

Abstract

Consumption of vegetables, especially crucifers, reduces the risk of developing cancer. Sulforaphane [l-isothiocyanato-4- (methylsulfinyl)-butane], a compound with the ability to inhibit carcinogenesis, is one of the degradation products of glucosinolates in cruciferous vegetables. Among available extraction methods, autolysis at room temperature is the most effective for Sulforaphane extraction (relatively higher purity and better yield). The research work undertaken at Federal Research Centre for Nutrition, Institute of Biology and Chemistry, Karlsruhe, Germany was isolation of Sulforaphane based on cruciferous vegetables like Broccoli (Brassica oleracea L. Cv. italica) employing autolysis - the yield being higher. The extracted Sulforaphane compound's purity and yield were accordingly examined with gas chromatography. (author)
