Abstract

A combination of the wedged-tip TLC technique and choice of solvent polarity has been used to clearly separate the pungent and weakly pungent homologs of gingerols and shogaols of ginger extracts. The quantitative estimation, of the separated components provides valid data for correlation with subjective pungency. By TLC analysis of the alkaline degradation products, the pungent fractions were shown to be the (6) - and the weakly pungent fractions to be (8) - (and possibly (10) - ) gingerols and shogaols. Zingerone has not been found even in commercial samples stored over many years.
