Tanshen, the rhizome of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge, is a famous Traditional Chinese Medicine for multiple therapeutic remedies. This work presents the isolation and purification of tanshinone I and tanshinone IIA from the extract of the rhizome of S. miltiorrhiza by using high-speed counter-current chromatography (CCC) without presaturation of the two-phase solvent mixture. The CCC method combines the results of CCC solvent system selection and components analyses of solvent mixture by GC, and… CONTINUE READING
