Lutein epoxide has been isolated from petals of dandelion (Taraxacum officinale F. Weber ex Wiggers) by thin-layer chromatography (TLC) on silica to be used for the accurate identification of this carotenoid in other sources. The extract was analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) using a C(30) column, as a result of which six geometrical isomers were separated. The identification of these isomers was performed on the basis of their UV/vis spectroscopic features in the mobile phase. In quantitative terms, it was observed that all-E-lutein epoxide was the major carotenoid and that there were also high amounts of the (9Z)- and (9'Z)-isomers, although the latter may be an artifact.
