Local chilli pepper (Capsicum) plants contain rich resources of ingredients which can be used
in the development and synthesis of pharmaceutical products. Therefore, phytochemical
analysis is required in order to extract and identify the important bioactive compounds, derived
from the chilli, to be used as therapeutic elements for humans. In this study, the compositions
of Capsicum species were investigated by using chromatographic and spectroscopic methods.
Following the organic extraction, the sample was investigated via analytical thin layer
chromatography. It is believed that this technique is effective in separating the extract for
preliminary qualitative analysis. The nonpolar constituents were later isolated by using
preparative scale. From the findings, lipid fraction could be identified. In summary, proton
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy could provide useful spectral data on the
composition of the triacylglycerol of this spice.
