The metabolic fate of daidzein

Sci Sin. Jul-Aug 1977;20(4):513-21.

Abstract

A method using thin layer chromatography and ultraviolet spectrophotometry for isolation and quantitative determination of daidzein from biological specimens was developed. This method was found to be sensitive and specific and was used in this study for the observation of the metabolic fate of daidzein in animals and human bodies.
