An optimized high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) procedure has been developed for the analysis and quantification of all of the known ferulic acid dehydrodimers, and the principle phenolic aldehydes and acids, found in the cell walls of higher plants. The HPLC system uses an ODS2 reverse phase column (5 μm particle size) eluted with a methanol, acetonitrile and water gradient with detection at 280 nm. In addition to providing baseline resolution of most components, the method employs a spectrometric detector which enables the precise identification of eluted components through the analysis of their spectral properties. Analysis of the cell wall phenolics of wheat straw stem (Triticum vulgare) was carried out using this method which is highly versatile and, for certain components, more sensitive than the current gas chromatography-mass spectrometry methodology.
