Abstract

Secondary metabolites from Lichen, mainly phenolic compounds, have been analysed and identified using high performance liquid chromatography with a photodiode array detector. Components of lichen thalli were detected by characteristic ultraviolet spectra and relative retention times. Some new minor components have been found in several lichens.
