Cumulative CAMAG Bibliography Service CCBS

Our CCBS database includes more than 11,000 abstracts of publications. Perform your own detailed search of TLC/HPTLC literature and find relevant information.

The Cumulative CAMAG Bibliography Service CCBS contains all abstracts of CBS issues beginning with CBS 51. The database is updated after the publication of every other CBS edition. Currently the Cumulative CAMAG Bibliography Service includes more than 11'000 abstracts of publications between 1983 and today. With the online version you can perform your own detailed TLC/HPTLC literature search:

  • Full text search: Enter a keyword, e.g. an author's name, a substance, a technique, a reagent or a term and see all related publications
  • Browse and search by CBS classification: Select one of the 38 CBS classification categories where you want to search by a keyword
  • Keyword register: select an initial character and browse associated keywords
  • Search by CBS edition: Select a CBS edition and find all related publications

Registered users can create a tailor made PDF of selected articles throughout CCBS search – simply use the cart icon on the right hand of each abstract to create your individual selection of abstracts. The saved items can be printed to PDF using the print function of your web browser.

      Planta Med. 83(17), 1321-1328 (2017). Benzoyl-aconine esters (lipo-alkaloids) produced by transesterification of aconitine (isolated from Aconitum sp.) with long-chain fatty acids were purified by a multistep chromatographic method, including cyclodextrane gel filtration chromatography, centrifugal planar chromatography on aluminium oxide layer using cyclohexane – chloroform – methanol 70:30:1 followed by 70:30:3 and/or preparative thin-layer chromatography on aluminium oxide layer with toluene – acetone – ethanol – concentrated ammonia 70:40:10:3.

      Solvent front position extraction procedure for preparation of biological samples with coccidiostats for Liquid Chromatography–Tandem Mass Spectrometry determination
      Anna TUREK*, M. RYBICKI, A. GIERACH, W. KOROL, T. DZIDO (*Medical University of Lublin, Department of Physical Chemistry, ul. Chodźki 4a, 20-093 Lublin, Poland,

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 32, 41-46 (2019). HPTLC of the five coccidiostats monensin (1), narasin (2), nigericin (3), robenidine (4) and salinomycin (5) on silica gel with at least two developments with methanol. After evaporation of the solvent, a TLC–MS interface was used for solvent front position extraction (SFPE) and further analysis by liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS/MS).

      Investigation of Symphytum cordatum alkaloids by liquid–liquid partitioning, thin-layer chromatography and liquid chromatography - ion trap mass spectrometry

      Anal. Chim. Acta 566 (2), 157-166 (2006). Extraction of pyrrolizidine alkaloids from the alkalised crude extract of Symphytum cordatum (L.) W.K. roots as free tertiary bases and polar N-oxides by one-step liquid–liquid partitioning and pre-fractionation by preparative multiple-development TLC on silica gel with chloroform – methanol – 25 % ammonia 50:5:1. Three alkaloid fractions of different polarities were obtained which showed different retention on silica gel: the most polar N-oxides had the highest retention, the tertiary bases had medium retention, and diesterified N-oxides had the lowest retention. Purification of the former fraction, which was reduced into free bases by sodium hydrosulfite, by liquid-liquid partitioning on Extrelut-NT3 cartridge. Further analysis by HPLC – ion-trap MS.

      New constituents from Gymnocarpos decander
      H. BECHLEM, T. MENCHERINI, M. BOUHEROUM, S. BENAYACHE, R. COTUGNO, Alessandra BRACA*, N. DE TOMMASI (*Dipartimento di Farmacia, Università di Pisa, Pisa, Italy;

      Planta Medica 83(14/15), 1200-1206 (2017). The fractionation on cyclodextrane with methanol of the butanol-soluble parts of a methanolic macerate of Gymnocarpos decander aerial parts was monitored by TLC on silica gel with n-butanol – acetic acid – water 12:3:5. Detection by derivatization with cerium sulfate–sulfuric acid reagent. Through further analysis of the 5 resulting fractions, roseoside and heterosides of quercetin, of isorhamnetin and of tetrahydroxyoleanene were detected._x000D_
