      Evaluation of visualizing reagents for estradiol on thin layer by densitometric method
      Alina PYKA*, W. KLIMCZOK, D. GURAK (*Department of Analytical Chemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, Medical University of Silesia, 4 Jagiellonska Street, 41-200, Sosnowiec, Poland;

      J. Liq. Chromatogr. Relat. Technol. 31, 555-566 (2008). Five new derivatization reagents (gentian violet, methylene violet, methylene blue, malachite green, and Janus blue) were used to detect estradiol on aluminium oxide. Barton’s reagent, rhodamine B, and sulfuric acid were used as the comparative derivatization reagents. Limit of detection, detection index, modified broadening index, modified contrast index, and linearity range were determined for estradiol after derivatization with these reagents. Quantitative determination by absorbance measurement between 200 and 600 nm.

      (Identification of estrogenic hormone compounds in traditional Chinese medicine by thin-layer chromatography) (Chinese)
      Q. WANG (Wang Quanyi)*, X. JIAO (Jiao Xiaoman), Y. DONG (Dong Yu) (*Inst. for Food & Drug Contr. of Liaoning Province, Shenyang 1 10023, China)

      J. of Practical Pharmacy & Clinic 14(2), 134-135 (2011). TLC of estrogenic hormones illegally added to traditional Chinese medicines on silica gel with chloroform - n-hexane - acetone 10:9:2. The hRf values of estrone, stilbestrol, ethinylestradiol, and estradiol were 67, 53, 48 and 39, respectively. Detection by spraying with 5 % phosphomolybdate reagent and heating at 80 ºC until the zones were detected. Identification of the four estrogens by comparison with the standards. The method is selective, sensitive, reliable, accurate, robust, and suitable for rapid screening of illegal estrogenic hormones in TCM preparations.
