The article traces the development of research on the naturally occurring amino acid L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-dopa), from Solanum melangena. The yield obtained depends on tropogeographical region. Structural elucidation and confirmation was evaluated by UV, TLC, LCMS, ESR and ICPAES. L-dopa is successful application as a substrate for the determination of Allium cepa o-diphenol oxidase activity.
