Title: why pyridine solubalized a compound and the other common solvents are not able t
Post by: syedbadshah on September 30, 2006, 06:42:17 AM

I have isolated a compound from a plant roots.
The compound structure is not still characterized, but it was purified from the Dichloromethane fraction of plant crude methanolic extract, and also some other compounds are purified from the same fraction of that plant and was not soluble in the other previously mentioned solvents.e.g, methanol, dichloromethane, acetone , ethylacetate, but was soluble in pyridine. So, which are those properties of pyridine, due to which a compound isolated from plants is soluble in pyridine and not in the other commonly used organic solvents.
