Summary

Cleavage of glucosinolates with myrosinase yields thioglycosidic compounds which have cancer chemoprevention activity. In this paper, glucosinolates in an extract (2.0 g) of broccoli seeds (Brassica oleracea var. italica) were separated by high-speed countercurrent chromatography (HSCCC) with the solvent system n-butanol-acetonitrile-10% ammonium sulfate solution 1:0.5:2.2 (v/v) to yield five glucosinolate compounds after desalting and decolorizing by MCI column chromatography. The five compounds, 7-methylsulfinylheptyl glucosinolate (22.4 mg), 4-pentenyl glucosinolate (33.6 mg), 3-butenyl glucosinolate (24.0 mg), 4-methylsulfinylbutyl glucosinolate (161.4 mg), and 3-methylsulfinylpropyl glucosinolate (29.6 mg), were identified by ESI-MS, 1H NMR and 13C NMR. The purity of the products was >98%, and 7-methylsulfinylheptyl glucosinolate was obtained from broccoli seeds for the first time.
