Scholarcy highlights

  • An improved separation method for chlorophyll metabolites in Oriental tobacco leaf was developed
  • While Oriental leaf still gives the green color even after the curing process, little attention has been paid to the detailed composition of the remaining green pigments
  • This study aimed to identify the green pigments using non aqueous reversed phase chromatography
  • Identification was based on the wavelength spectrum, mass spectrum and retention time, comparing the analytes in Oriental leaf with the commercially available and synthesized components
  • NARPC expanded the number of detectable low polar chlorophyll metabolites in Oriental tobacco leaf
