      Three new abietane-type diterpenoids from Plectranthus africanus and their antibacterial activities
      R.T. NZOGONG, B.K. NGANOU, A.T. TEDONKEU, M.D. AWOUAFACK, M. TENE*, T. ITO, P. TANE, H. MORITA** (*Laboratory of Natural Products Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, University of Dschang, Dschang, Cameroon; ** Institute of Natural Medicine, University of Toyama, Toyama, Japan; *; **

      Planta Medica 84(1), 59-64 (2018). A multi-step fractionation through silica gel column chromatography (CC) of a methanolic extract of Plectranthus africanus (whole plant, Lamiaceae) was monitored through TLC on silica gel with various solvent mixtures (n-hexane or dichloromethane with either acetone or methanol). Zones were detected under UV and further by spraying with sulfuric acid 20 % and heating at 100°C. For each fraction or TLC profile, the authors provide the CC gradient, the optimal proportions of the solvents used for the TLC mobile phase, as well as the RF values of the molecules isolated by this CC method: new abietane-type diterpenoids (plectranthroyleanones A, B, C), betulinic and oleanolic acids, heterosides of apigenin, rhamnetin and sitosterol.

      J. Liq. Chromatogr. Relat. Technol. 42, 563-569 (2019). HPTLC of spinosin in the fruits of Ziziphus jujuba on silica gel with ethyl acetate - dichloromethane - methanol - water 18:10:15:5. Quantitative determination by absorbance measurement at 334 nm. The hRF value for spinosin was 38. Linearity was between 10 and 120 ng/mL. Intermediate precision was below 2 % (n=6). The LOD and LOQ were 12 and 35 ng/mL, respectively. Recovery rate was between 98.7 and 101.3 %. The HPTLC method provided similar reproducibility, accuracy and selectivity for the quantitative determination of spinosin compared with a HPLC method.
