Abstract

It has been found that the relative amounts of free gossypol contained in the products of the extraction of defatted high-gossypol cottonseed flour by chloroform, diethyl ether, and acetone falls with an increase in the polarity of the solvents. It has been shown that, in addition to gossypol, gossypurpurin is extracted. Its highest amount (4.82%) was found in an acetone extract, and its lowest amount (2.68%) in an ethereal extract.
