The determination of the naphthodianthrone constituents in extracts of dried blossoms of Hypericum perforatum L. by combined HPLC-electrospray mass spectrometry is described. Hypericin (1), pseudohypericin (2) and their precursor compounds produce intensive negative quasi-molecular ions by deprotonation provided a non-acidic eluent system is used in the(More)
The oxidative biotransformation of the anticancer drug 7-hydroxy-2-[2-[(2-hydroxyethyl)amino]ethyl]-5-[[2-[(2-hydroxyethyl)amino]ethyl]amino]anthra[1,9-cd]pyrazol-6(2H)-one dihydrochloride (losoxantrone, CI-941) after incubation of primary cultures of rat hepatocytes has been investigated. The structures of twelve losoxantrone metabolites have been(More)
The multistep synthesis and negative ion-ESI fragmentation pattern of [methyl-D(3)](2)hypericin (1-D(6)) is described. The application of 1-d(6) as internal standard for the quantification of hypericin (1) in the ng mL(-1) range in human plasma by isotope-dilution LC-MS is demonstrated. The hypericin-containing plasma samples are spiked with 1-D(6),(More)
