      J. Liq. Chromatogr. Relat. Technol. 42, 311-316 (2019). HPTLC of equol in cattle manure with methyl t-butyl ether - cyclohexane 1:1. The plate was scanned with a Time of Flight – Direct Analysis in Real Time – Mass Spectrometry (TOF-DART-MS) system. The hRF value of equol was 71. The LOD and LOQ for equol were 2.4 µg/zone and 4.5 µg/zone, respectively.

Quantitative determination of (1) by absorbance measurement at 254 nm. Compound (2) was detected by spraying with p-anisaldehyde and quantified under UV light at 513 nm. The hRF values for (1) and (2) were 57 and 19, respectivley. Linearity was between 200 and 1400 ng/zone for (1) and (2). The intermediate precision was below 2 % (n=6). The LOD and LOQ were 39 and 117 ng for (1) and 43 and 129 ng for (2), respectively. Recovery rate was between 98.8 and 99.4 % for (1) and 98.4 and 99.0 % for (2).
