      Comprehensive HPTLC fingerprinting: A novel economic approach to evaluating the quality of Ganoderma lucidum fruiting body
      Débora FROMMENWILER*, D. TREFZER, M. SCHMID, S. CAÑIGUERAL, E. REICH (*Unit of Pharmacology, Pharmacognosy and Therapeutics, Faculty of Pharmacy and Food Sciences, University of Barcelona, Av. Joan XXIII, 27-3, ES-08028 Barcelona, Spain,

      J. Liq. Chromatogr. Relat. Technol. 43, 414-423 (2020). HPTLC fingerprint of Ganoderma lucidum fruiting body on silica gel with toluene - tetrahydrofuran - acetic acid 70:30:1. Detection by dipping into a solution of 10% sulfuric acid in methanol, followed by heating at 100 ºC for 3 min. Qualitative determination under UV light at 254 and 366 nm. The hRF values for ganoderic acids D, B, A, G and C2 were in the zone between 10 and 50. This zone was used for quantification of total triterpene acids by absorbance measurement at 260 nm. Linearity of each of the main peaks between hRF 10 to 50 was determined. The linear range of ganoderic acid A was between 200 and 500 ng/zone.  The study proposes a new method for evaluation, based on “comprehensive high-performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) fingerprinting.” Instead of several different methods using different chromatographic techniques, a single HPTLC analysis for identification of Ganoderma lucidum fruiting body with a test for adulteration and quantitative determination of the content of total triterpene acids is proposed. As an alternative to the current tests in the  USP monograph on G. lucidum fruiting body this HPTLC method is a single, low-cost test, which eliminates the UHPLC assay of total triterpene acids.

      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.
