Modification of Pons's method of estimating aflatoxin B1 in corn, groundnut and groundnut cake

Abstract

Pons's method for detn. of aflatoxin B1 has been modified by eliminating column clean up and by introducing an additional TLC development in ether + hexane (1:1). Aqueous acetone extract is diluted to contain 25% acetone which expedites filtration and improves the clarity of the filtrate. Recovery of aflatoxin added to groundnut flake, groundnut cake and corn was 83-107%. Quantification of aflatoxin B1 in naturally contaminated commercial groundnut cake by the modified method compared well with that obtained by the Contaminants Branch method.
