It was extracted with EtOAc and the residue recovered from the organic phase was found to be dibenzofruran while the aqueous phase was concentrated and purified by preparative TLC using the solvent system (EtOAc-MeOH-H2O-HOAc; 4: 2: 2: 2) and identified as D-glucose and L-rhamnose by comparative TLC of the hydrolyzed sugars with the authentic samples of glucose and rhamnose and their optical rotation values [[alpha]]D20 + 50.
At predetermined intervals, 25-gram samples were withdrawn, blended with 225 ml of diluent, and enumerated onto a culture medium of 1% L-Rhamnose MacConkey agar (RMAC).
