A procedure has been developed for the separation and identification of chemical classes of the constituents of the root of Echinacea angustifolia D.C. This procedure separates the pentane soluble components into the different classes of organic compounds. A study was made of the number of chemical components and the degree of unsaturation of these components. The principal active components of the root were also isolated. By the use of this method of separation and identification any pentane soluble class of organic compounds present in the root may be obtained for further study.
