A procedure has been developed for the isolation and separation of the several chemical classes of the constituents in the seeds of the Echinacea angustifolia, DC. This procedure separates the pentane soluble components into different classes of organic compounds. After the separation of the component classes of compounds a preliminary study of the chemical properties of the naturally occurring substances was made. Through these characteristics four compounds were identified and several other compounds tentatively identified. By use of this method of separation, each pentane soluble class of organic compounds occurring in the seeds may be obtained for further study.
