      Determination of aloe vera gel in cosmetics
      J. GEISSER*, Evamaria KRATZ (*Chemical and Veterinary Investigation Laboratory (CVUA), Weissenburger Str. 3, 76187 Karlsruhe, Germany,

      CBS 104, 13-15 (2010). HPTLC of aloeverose, glucose and galactose in aloe vera products on silica gel (impregnated with NaH2PO4) with acetone - iso-propanol - 0.1 M formic acid 2:2:1 (double development for products with high glucose content). Detection by immersion in 4-aminobenzoic acid reagent (1 g 4-aminobenzoic acid in 36 mL acetic acid, with 40 mL water, 2 mL 85 % phosphoric acid and 120 mL acetone), followed by heating at 100 °C for 10 min. Densitometric evaluation by fluorescence measurement at 366 nm. The limit of quantification was approx. 3 % in aloe vera products. RSD for polynomial calibration is 2.1 % for mannose in the range of 8-80 ng/band and 4.0 % using matrix calibration.

      J. Chromatogr. 360, 397-406 (1986). TLC of 6-o-alpha-D-glucosyl-, 6-0-alpha-maltosyl and 6-o-alpha-maltotriosyl derivatives of alpha, beta- and gamma cyclodextrin (CD) and of 6,6'-di-o-alpha-D-glucocyl-beta-CD on 4 kinds of plates with different solvent systems. Chromatography on silica with 1-propanol - ethyl acetate - water, 25 % NH3 3:1:2:1, on NH2-bonded silica with acetonitrile - water 3:2, on Si 50000 silica with 1-butanol - pyridine - water 6:4:3. TLC is a more convenient method than HPLC for the analysis of CDS.

      Direct microextraction and analysis of rough-type lipopolysaccharides by combined thin-layer chromatography and MALDI mass spectrometery
      H. THERISOD, V. LABAS, M. CAROFF* (*Equipe “Endotoxines”, UMR 8619 du Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Biochimie, Universitè de Paris-Sud, F-91405 Orsay, France)

      Anal. Chem. 73, 3804-3807 (2001). TLC of lipopolysaccharides from intact bacteria on silica gel with chloroform – methanol – water – triethylamine 12:6:1:0.04. Detection by spraying with 10 % sulphuric acid in ethanol followed by heating at 150 °C for 5 min. For the non-destructive visualization the plates were pre-washed twice with propanol – water 1:1 and developed in methanol – water 1:1 which made the products appear as dull white spots on a bright background. Zones containing lipopolysaccharides or lipid A molecular species were isolated from the plate and analyzed by MALDI mass spectrometery.
