Hypericum perforatum L. tissues were extracted in collaborative research with USDA Plant Biochemist at the Plant protection and Nutrition Laboratory at Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y. Hypericin and pseudohypericin were characterized using thin layer chromatography and spectrophotometric analyses. The abundance of hypericin in Hypericum was confirmed, and new work to focus on productivity of these compounds in vivo and in vitro is imminent.
