Moreover, the authors of several reports have suggested that measurement of retinol, carotenoids, and tocopherol vitamers could be enhanced by use of a gradient system incorporating a third or fourth organic modifier, such as tetrahydrofuran, dichloromethane, or hexane, or by use of two separate chromatographic conditions (11-13).
After the tetrahydrofuran had been removed from the orange liquid by rotary evaporation, crystallisation of the residue afforded crude biphenyl which was purified by recrystallisation from methanol.
