A simple and rapid method has been established for the screening of the main phenolic compounds in Artemisia annua by LC-DAD-ESI-MS(n). A total of 40 phenolic compounds were identified or tentatively characterized in the methanol extract of A. annua, including 8 C-glycosyl flavonoids, 5 O-glycosyl flavonoids, 3 flavonoid aglycones, 21 quinic acid(More)
By using HPLC-diode array detection-electrospray ion trap tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-DAD-ESI-MS(n)) in negative ion mode, we have analyzed the fragmentation pathways of 11 phenolic acids which were isolated from Danshen. Then the extract of Danshen was analyzed, and a total of 42 phenolic acids, including sixteen new minor constituents, were identified(More)
Phenolic compounds are the major bioactive constituents of the Chinese herbal drug Tu-Si-Zi, which is prepared from the seeds of Cuscuta chinensis. However, seeds of C. australis also are offered under the name of this drug in the herb market. In order to make a comparison of their chemical constituents, the phenolic compounds of these two Cuscuta species(More)
Triterpenoids extracted from Ganoderma lucidum (Leyss. ex Fr.) Karst were separated and characterized using optimized reversed-phase liquid chromatography with diode array detection and electrospray ion trap tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-DAD-ESI-MS(n)). They could be classified into five types depending on the fragmentation behavior. All triterpenoids gave(More)
In this study, a systematic method was established for the global quality control of Xian-ling-gu-bao capsules (XLGB), a popular six-herb Traditional Chinese Patent Medicine (TCPM) for the treatment of osteoporosis. Both qualitative and quantitative analyses were conducted. In qualitative analysis part, a fast and sensitive method based on high-performance(More)
Biotransformation of 20(S)-protopanaxatriol (1) by the fungus Mucor spinosus AS 3.3450 gave 10 metabolites (2-10), of which 2-5 were previously known. On the basis of NMR and MS analyses, structures 6-10 were established as 12-oxo-23beta-hydroxyl-20(S)-protopanaxatriol (6), 20S,24R-epoxy-dammaran-3beta,6alpha,25-triol-12-one (7),(More)
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is commonly considered to operate due to the synergistic effects of all the major and minor components in the medicines. Hence sensitive and comprehensive analytical techniques are needed to acquire a better understanding of the pharmacological basis of the herb and to enhance the product quality control. The present(More)
A precise and reproducible HPLC method has been established and validated for determination of salvianolic acid B (SalB) in rat plasma after oral administration of Radix Salviae Miltiorrhizae extract. Liquid-liquid extraction was adopted for the sample preparation. Separation was accomplished on a C(18) column with a linear gradient elution consisting of(More)
Sixty-one sterols and pentacyclic triterpenes have been isolated and characterized by chromatographic and spectral methods fromZea mays (corn). Several plant parts were examined; seed, pollen, cultured hypocotyl cells, roots, coleoptiles (sheaths), and blades. By studying reaction pathways and mechanisms on plants fed radiotracers ([2-14C]mevalonic acid,(More)
