In this work, to understand the separation behavior of the flash column chromatography during purification of artemisinin from the crude extract of Artemisia annua, multivariate data analysis technique PARAFAC (Parallel factorization) is used to mine the relevant chemical information from analytical chromatograms of 9 artemisinin containing fractions. The size ...
