A HPTLC method was developed for simple and rapid chemical fingerprint analysis of four Hoodia species, dietary supplements that claim to contain Hoodia gordonii, and plants from genera related to Hoodia. HPTLC was performed on precoated silica 60F(254 )plates with dichloromethane/methanol/water 75:17:2.2 by volume, as mobile phase. Evaluation of the HPTLC(More)
A rapid UPLC method was developed for the simultaneous analysis of five indole alkaloids (harmalol, harmol, harmane, harmaline and harmine) and four flavonoids (orientin, isoorientin, vitexin, and isovitexin) from the aerial parts of Passiflora incarnata L. (Passifloraceae), other species of Passiflora (P. violacea Veil., P. edulis Sims., P. suberosa L., P.(More)
Phytochemical investigation of the leaves of Centella asiatica resulted in the isolation and characterization of eight triterpenes and/or saponins [which were characterized as 23- O-acetylmadecassoside (1), asiatic acid (2), madecassic acid (3), asiaticoside C (4), asiaticoside F (5), asiaticoside (6), madecassoside (7), and 23- O-acetylasiaticoside B (8)](More)
Analytical methods including HPLC, UPLC and HPTLC are presented for the determination of major alkaloid and triterpene saponins from the roots of Caulophyllum thalictroides (L.) Michx. (blue cohosh) and dietary supplements claiming to contain blue cohosh. A separation by LC was achieved using a reversed phase column, PDA with ELS detection, and ammonium(More)
Dikamali is a gum resin obtained from the leaf buds of Gardenia lucida or G. gummifera. There is controversy regarding the botanical source of this gum resin with some stating it to be from G. lucida while others claim it to be from G. gummifera. Analytical methods including UPLC and HPTLC were developed for the qualitative analysis of Gardenia species and(More)
This paper presents a comparative study of anatomy of leaves, stems and roots of three species of Plumbago, namely P. auriculata Lam., P. indica L. and P. zeylanica L. by light microscopy. The paper also provides qualitative and quantitative analysis of the naphthoquinone, plumbagin—a major constituent present in these species—using UPLC-UV. Microscopic(More)
Two alkaloids, 9beta,2'-dihydroxy-4'',5''-dimethoxy-lythran-12-one or 9beta-hydroxyvertine (1) and (2S,4S,10R)-4-(3-hydroxy-4-methoxyphenyl)-quinolizidin-2-acetate (2), as well as seven known alkaloids, lythrine (3), dehydrodecodine (4), lythridine (5), vertine (6), heimidine (7), lyfoline (8) and epi-lyfoline (9), were isolated from Heimia salicifolia. The(More)
A new (2α,3β)-23-sulphonyl-2,3-dihydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid O-α-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1 → 4)-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1 → 6)-O-β-D-glucopyranosyl ester (1) together with eighteen known compounds were isolated from Centella erecta (L.f.) Fern. Their structures were elucidated mainly by NMR and HRESIMS, as well as on comparison with the reported data.
