We are interested in collecting and analyzing several plants (endemic to certain regions in South America) for the presence of a specific substance. This substance belongs to a common plant-derived compound class and all physical and chemical properties are known. A robust analytical method for detecting the compound is also available.

This effort would involve 1) collecting multiple grams of the plant biomass, 2) extracting the plant parts with common organic solvent, 3) removing the solvent and concentrating the extract to a paste and 3) analyzing the resulting paste by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) for the presence of the compound.
