includes experimental details, uses hplc.
Tips for breaking the caffeine habit
Laboratory extraction of caffeine from tea
- Camphene : pdb
constituent of pine oil
- Capillin :pdb
an acetylenic ketone which has fungicidal activity.
- delta-3 Carene : pdb
a natural product with a cyclopropyl ring.
- (-)-(R)-Carvone : pdb
from spearmint oil.
- (+)-(S)-Carvone : pdb
from caraway seed.
- Cholesterol : pdb
Lab Isolation of Cholesterol
Control High Cholesterol Levels
Cholesterol: Heart and Stroke Guide
- (+)Cholic acid : pdb
a bile acid. 11 stereocentres lead to 2048 possible stereoisomers.
Of the these only this one is found naturally.
- (+)-trans-chrysanthemic acid :pdb
a terpene constituent of Chrysanthemum cinerariifolium.
- Coniine : pdb
from Hemlock, Socrates' poison.
- Ectocarpene : pdb
volatile sperm cell attractant released by the eggs of the seaweed
- Enanthotoxin (R enantiomer): pdb
an acetylenic natural product from
hemlock water dropwort, the most poisonous plan in England.
- Epinephrine, adrenalin : pdb
- Humulene : pdb
terpene constituent of carnation extracts. A cyclo-undecatriene.
- Jasmone : pdb
perfume from oil of jasmine.
- (R)-(+)-Limonene :pdb
- LSD : pdb
lysergic acid, diethylamide, a potent hallucinogen
- Menthol : pdb
- Methyl (R,2E)-tetradec-2,4,5-trienoate : pdb
Sex attractant of the male dried-bean weevil.
Naturally optically active due to allene structure
- Multifidene : pdb
female-produced male sperm cell attractant of certain brown alga.
- Muscalure, (Z)-9-Tricosene :pdb
female sex pheromone of the housefly (Musca domestica)
- Nicotine : pdb
- (3E,13Z)-3,13-Octadecadien-1-ol :pdb
a pheromone of the poplar twig clearwing moth (Paranthrene tabaniformis)
- C21H36O2 : 3-Pentadecylcatechol : pdb
constituent of the irritant oil of
other sites:poison ivy
- alpha-Pinene : pdb
major constituent of turpentine.
- Piperine : pdb
compound in black pepper which causes sneezing;
synthesis: JChemEd,72, A26 (1995)
- Pregnenolone : pdb
- Quinine : pdb
antimalarial drug isolated from cinchona bark.
- 11-cis-Retinal : pdb
- Santene : pdb
component of East Indian sandelwood oil.
- (+)-(2R,3R)-Tartaric Acid : pdb
by-product of wine making.
- (-)-(2S,3S)-Tartaric Acid : pdb
a rare form of this acid with no optical rotation was called Racemic Acid (from
racemus=bunch of grapes, L).
Experiment showed that this was a 50-50 mixture of the (+) and (-) forms of tartaric acid
(which were separated by hand-picking crystals of the sodium ammonium salt of racemic acid)
and this has led all such 50-50 mixtures of the two enantiomers being labelled racemic
- (2R,3S)-Tartaric Acid (meso): pdb
- Taxol : pdb;
extracted from bark of Pacific yew tree, of which the supply is limited;
shows promise in treating certain kinds of cancers.

- Thymol : pdb
from oil of thyme.
- Tyrian purple : pdb
6,6'-dibromoindigo. Prepared from sea snails found near the city of Tyre
in very low yield (10,000 snails gave 1 g of dye) and so very expensive and available
only to royalty.
- Vanillin : pdb
