... acids. Only two purines and three pyrimidines occur widely in nucleic acids. B. Pyrimidine is a heterocyclic aromatic organic compound similar to benzene and pyridine, containing two nitrogen atoms at positions 1 and 3 of the six-member ring. A purine is a heterocyclic aromatic organic compound, ...

Re: how to memorize the amino acid

... tricky to remember, but simply they are methyl-hydroxyl and thioether derivatives. The aromatic amino acids are quite simple, since you just add benzene to the Ala and you have (surprisingly :lol:) phenylalanine; just add hydroxyl and you get tyrosine. Add imidazole and you get histidine. With ...

Re: thin layer chromatography

Hi Jack, I agree, though the xanthophylls might move a little. pi clouds might give some affinity with the conjugated mobile phase (benzene). - Jon

thin layer chromatography

... they are wrong :lol: Anyway, we are doing TLC with extract from red pepper, the stationary phase is silufol (Al2O3) and the mobile phase is benzene. Thus the more hydrophobic pigment, the further it should travel, right? Thus like beta-carotene should be first and some hydroxylated xanthophyls ...
