A RP-HPLC method was developed (λ (max) =280) to quantify hydroxychavicol and chlorogenic acid in Piper betel Linn. The method was validated for linearity, limit of detection (LOD=3:1σ/S), limit of quantification (LOQ=10:1σ/S), precision, accuracy and ruggedness. The response was linear with good correlation between concentration and mean peak area through(More)
