HPLC profiling and quantification of active principles in leaves of Hedera helix L.

Abstract

Ivy (Hedera helix L., Araliaceae), is an evergreen medicinal and ornamental plant. Depending on leaf polymorphism different shaped ivy leaves were extracted and subsequently analyzed by reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC). Quantitative determination of its most prominent saponins hederacoside C (1) and alpha-hederin (2) from different ivy leaf extracts were detected, validated and optimized for quick profiling. The linearity of response, repeatability and reproducibility of the applied RP-HPLC method are reported.
