Nachweis und Identifizierung neuer Scharfstoffe in Capsicum–FrüchtenDetection and Identification of new Pungent Compounds in Fruits of Capsicum
13 January 2009 (online)
A detailed study of the pungent principle of Capsicum annuum L. var. annuum allowed the detection and structure determination of two isomers of homocapsaicin and homodihydrocapsaicin, respectively. The vanillylamides of caprylic acid and decylic acid were isolated and characterized by means of mass– and H–NMR–spectra. The presence of bishomo– and trishomocapsaicin was detected by accurate mass–measurements.
