Determination of Phenolic Compounds in Vegetables by Spectrophotometric Method

Authors(3) :-Deepak Kumar Yadav, Ajit Joshi, Jeena Harjit

Determine the concentration of 1-naphthol and 2-naphthol in green vegetables (Spinach, Cabbage and mustard greens). Collection of samples from agricultural land which is effected by industrial pollution and were determined by spectrophotometric method. One sample of each type of Spinach, Cabbage and mustard greens were considered. The results show high concentration of 1-naphthol and 2-naphthol in all samples of Spinach, Cabbage and mustard greens compared with normal value in human body. This increasing of concentration may lead to much harmful effect to human health.
