    • Abstract


      Convenient methods have been worked out for the isolation of the bitter principles of the peels, rags and the seeds of pamparapanas (Indian Shaddock). The first two contain naringin to the extent of 0 13 and 1% respectively whereas in the seeds naringin (0·15%) and limonin (about 0·6%) are found to be the most important bitter components besides small amounts of isolimonin. Some properties of limonin and isolimonin have been studied.
