Abstract

The undesirable conversion of solasodine product to solasodiene which occurs during the acid hydrolysis of solasodine glycosides has been mathematically modelled. The model incorporates acid loss which results from reaction of acid with alcohol solvents. The model has been used to obtain kinetic data for the reaction at a number of different reaction conditions.
