      Silvia GONZALEZ, J. GEISSER, Hannelore HEGER, D. LACHENMEIER* (*Chemisches und Veterinäruntersuchungsamt (CVUA) Karlsruhe, Weissenburgerstr. 3, 76187 Karlsruhe, Germany;

      CBS 97, 6-7 (2006). HPTLC of absinthe (a beverage of the wormwood plant, Artemisia absinthium) on silica gel with acetone - acetic acid (98 %) - toluene - dichloromethane 1135 over 70 mm. Detection by dipping in a solution of acetic anhydride - sulphuric acid - ethanol 1110 followed by heating at 104 °C for 5 min. Quantitative determination by absorbance measurement at 554 nm. The hRf value of absinthin was 64 and selectivity regarding matrix was given. Linearity was between 0.1 and 10 g/L. The limit of detection and quantification for absinthin was 0.05 and 0.11 g/L, respectively. The precisions were better than 13.5 % (intraday) and 15.8 % (interday).

      Simultaneous quantitation of lupeol and beta-sitosterol from the whole plant powder of Asteracantha longifolia Nees
      Sunita SHAILAJAN*, S. MENON (*Herbal Research Lab, Ramnarain Ruia College, Matunga, Mumbai, India)

      Analytical Chemistry - An Indian Journal 8(1), 77-81 (2009). An HPTLC method is reported for estimation of lupeol and beta-sitosterol in the whole plant powder of Asteracantha longifolia (Acanthaceae). The proposed method was also employed for estimation of beta-sitosterol in herbal formulation containing Asteracantha longifolia. Methanolic extracts of the sample were used for chromatography. HPTLC on silica gel with toluene - ethyl acetate - methanol 75157. Derivatization with Liebermann-Burchard reagent. Densitometric quantification at 366 nm. The concentration of lupeol and beta-sitosterol was 0.162 mg/g and 0.045 mg/g, respectively in the whole plant, while the concentration of beta-sitosterol was 0.039-0.048 mg/g in the formulation. The method was suitable for the quality control of the herbal formulation.

      Planta Med. 83(07), 661-671 (2017). Structural modifications of 9?- and 9?-hydroxyparthenolide (isolated from Anvillea radiata aerial parts) were performed either by Heck’s reaction (a palladium(II) acetate treatment in presence of triethylamine and iodoaryl in dimethylformamide), or by acylation (here, addition of aroyl chlorides and/or acetic anhydride in dichloromethane and pyridine). TLC for reaction monitoring of the 21 derivatives on silica gel with petroleum ether – ethyl acetate in various proportions (32; 14; 11).
