      J. Planar Chromatogr. 23, 293-297 (2010). TLC of eugenol and piperine on silica gel with toluene - ethyl acetate 93 with chamber saturation for 15 min at room temperature. The hRf value of eugenol was 73 and of piperine 28. Linearity was between 1 and 12 µg/band for both eugenol and piperine. A good linear relationship with r2 = 0.9979 and 0.9980 for eugenol and piperine was obtained. The limit of detection was 0.1 ng/band for eugenol and 10 ng/band for piperine. Recovery of eugenol and piperine was above 97 %. The recovery (measured at different concentration levels) of eugenol was 95.9- 97.5 % and of piperine 91.8-96.6 %. For eugenol the robustness of the method (% RSD, n = 3) was 0.74 % (12 ng/band) and 0.69 % (25 ng/band) for toluene - ethyl acetete 93 and 0.79 % (12 ng/band) and 0.88 % (25 ng/band) for toluene - ethyl acetate 92. For piperine the robustness of the method (% RSD, n = 3) was 0.74 % (5 ng/band) and 0.89 % (10 ng/band) for toluene - ethyl acetate 93 and 0.72 % (5 ng/band) and 0.73 % (10 ng/band) for toluene - ethyl acetate 92.

      Analytical Chemistry - An Indian Journal 8(4), 608-612 (2009). An HPTLC method is reported for estimation of lupeol and beta-sitosterol from the whole plant of Vernonia cinerea (Acanthaceae). Methanolic extracts of the plant were subjected to chromatographic analysis on silica gel with toluene - methanol 2203. Derivatization with Liebermann-Burchard reagent. Densitometric evaluation at 366 nm. The plant was found to contain 0.49 mg/g and 1.4 mg/g of lupeol and beta-sitosterol respectively. The method was suitable for quality control of herbal raw material.
