      Vitamins determination by TLC/HPTLC—a mini‑review
      Q. ULLAH*, A. MOHAMMAD (*Physical Sciences Section, School of Sciences, Maulana Azad National Urdu University, Gachibowli, Hyderabad, TS 500032, India,

      J. Planar Chromatogr. 33, 429-437 (2020). Review of the application of TLC and HPTLC for the analysis of vitamins covering the period of 2011-2019. The authors describe stationary and mobile phases for the TLC/HPTLC analysis of water and fat-soluble vitamins. The review highlightes that none of the papers reviewed showed the use of surfactants or ionic materials as impregnating agents or mobile phase modifers.

Detection (1) by spraying with 0.1 - 1 % 4-(dimethylamino)cinnamaldehyde and sulfuric acid in ethanol, followed by drying for 5 min and spraying with liquid paraffin - chloroform 1:10. Alternatively, biotin was detected (2) by spraying with 0.05 % potassium permanganate. Quantitative determination by absorbance measurement at 530 nm for (1) and 400 nm for (2). The hRf value of biotin was 50. Linearity was in the range of 340-3310 ng/zone for both (1) and (2). LOD and LOQ were 50 and 90 ng/zone for (1) and 60 and 100 ng/zone for (2).
