Hi all,

I am new to natural product studies and i am currently trying to isolate active compounds from a leaf extract. I would like to know if there are any TLC visualizing stains that can be recommended to visualize what compound classes (alkaloids, terpenes, flavonods...etc) that might be present in my crude extract. I have heard about using Vanilin stain however, i wasn't able to find out what compound classes it detects or what color or visualizing spots it produces. Any advice is vvery much appreciated? Thank you in advance.
