      Elena CHERNETSOVA, Gertrud MORLOCK* (*Institute of Food Chemistry, University of Hohenheim, Garbenstrasse 28, 70599 Stuttgart, Germany,

      CBS 107, 13-15 (2011). HPTLC of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) in honey on silica gel, prewashed with methanol - water 6:1, with ethyl acetate. Quantitative determination by densitometry in absorbance mode at 290 nm. Optional detection by immersion in p-aminobenzoic acid reagent followed by heating at 110 °C for 5-10 min. The hRf value of HMF was 80. The calibration function was polynomial in the range of 0.8-80 ng/band whilst Michaelis Menten 2 regression was suitable for higher concentrations. The LOD of HMF in honey samples was 0.75 mg/kg (12 µL applied) and the LOQ 2.4 mg/kg. The method complies with the requirement of max. 15 mg/kg of HMF in honey. The results with this method were compared with those obtained by the spectrophotometric Winkler method and by HPLC-UV and mean differences were minor (3.3 % or 0.9 mg/kg). Complementary confirmation by HPTLC-MS online coupling. HMF zones identified under UV were eluted and analyzed by ESI-MS in full-scan and SIM mode.
