Porous graphitized carbon columns have been used for the separation and quantitative determination of the anticancer drug taxol in the bark and foliage of Taxus baccata. Successful separations were achieved using water:dioxane 54:46 v/v eluent. Peak purity tests and the spectra of taxol peaks taken at different retention times indicated that the taxol peak is not entirely homogeneous and probably contains other taxoteres coeluted with the main compound.
