How to extract allicin from garlic

Allicin standard preparation: Allicin extract was extracted by mixing 400 mg of fresh garlic with 10 mL of water and shaking for 2 min. Solid phase extraction (SPE) procedure was followed to obtain purified allicin from the aqueous extract from garlic. A C18 SPE cartridge (SPE C18E 1g/6mL cartridge, Phenomenex/ 8BS001JCH) was used. The SPE column was rinsed with 6 mL of methanol and then conditioned with three column volumes (18 mL) of mobile phase (methanol:water 50:50). Elution of allicin was performed using the same mobile phase (methanol: water) and collected.
