      Comprehensive HPTLC fingerprinting for quality control of an herbal drug – the case of Angelica gigas root
      Débora Arruda FROMMENWILER*, J. KIM, C. YOOK, T. T. T. TRAN, S. CAÑIGUERAL, E. REICH (*CAMAG Laboratory, Muttenz, Switzerland;

      Planta Medica 84(6/7), 465-474 (2018). The new concept “Comprehensive HPTLC Fingerprinting” was applied to define specifications for the identification and purity assessment of Angelica gigas roots, and for the quantification of its markers: the coumarins decursin and decursinol angelate. Methanolic root extracts of A. gigas (10 reference materials, 24 commercial samples), of 26 other Apiaceae species (including 10 Angelica, 9 Ligusticum, 2 Notopterygium, 4 Peucedanum, and Levisticum officinale) and of mixtures, were developed with toluene - ethyl acetate - acetic acid 90:10:1 on HPTLC silica gel (at 33% relative humidity, chamber pre-saturated for 20 min with filter paper and developing solvent) and dried for 5 min. Detection under white and UV lights before and after derivatization by dipping into 10% sulfuric acid in methanol and then heating 3 min at 100°C. Quantitative evaluation by densitometry in fluorescence mode at UV 313 nm, and luminance was also calculated from the image pixels. The study showed the presence in A. gigas of nodakenin, decursinol, 7-demethylsuberosin, imperatorin, osthole, and isoimperatorin at hRF 0, 4, 15, 33, 38 and 44 respectively. Z-ligustilide (hRF 59) was absent from A. gigas, allowing 1) to distinguish it from several other Apiaceae species; 2) to identify in mixtures with A. gigas two common adulterants (A. acutiloba, A. sinensis) even at 1% in the root powder. Minimal content of A. gigas fingerprint markers (decursin + decursinol acetate, co-eluting at hRF 27) was assessed as 3% (w/w) based on the quantified peaks from A. gigas reference materials.
