      Denudatin A, a dimeric acylphloroglucinol from Hypericum denudatum presents an antinociceptive effect in mice
      H. BRIDI, G. de CARVALHO MEIRELLES, S. A. de LORETO BORDIGNON, St. M. KUZE RATES, Gilsane LINO von POSER* (*Laboratory of Pharmacognosy, Faculty of Pharmacy, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil;

      Planta Medica 83(17), 1329-1334 (2017). Two acetone-soluble subfractions of an n-hexane maceration of Hypericum denudatum aerial parts (Hypericaceae) were submitted to repeated centrifugal planar chromatography (CPC) on silica gel using n-hexane – ethyl acetate (gradient from 100:0 to 90:10), obtaining four dimeric acylphloroglucinols (denudatin A, hyperbrasilol A, uliginosin B and isouliginosin B), which were purified by crystallisation with n-hexane – dichloromethane 9:1. From the most apolar CPC eluates, a monomer (selancin A) was isolated on preparative TLC silica gel layer by elution with n-hexane – ethyl acetate 97:3. Furthermore, all the purification steps were monitored through TLC on silica gel with n-hexane – ethyl acetate 19:1 or with n-hexane – dichloromethane 1:1. Detection under UV light after derivatization with anisaldehyde – sulfuric acid, monomeric acylphloroglucinols appeared purple, whereas dimers appeared yellow-orange.

      Microscopic and phytochemical comparison of the three Leonurus species L. cardiaca, L. japonicus, and L. sibiricus
      Anna PITSCHMANN, C. WASCHULIN, C. SYKORA, S. PUREVSUREN, S. GLASL* (*Department of Pharmacognosy, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria;

      Planta Med. 83(14/15), 1233-1241 (2017). HPTLC of standards and methanolic extracts of L. cardiaca, L. japonicus and L. sibiricus (Lamiaceae) acidified with formic acid on silica gel with ethyl acetate – acetic acid – formic acid – water 100:11:11:26, in an automatic development chamber with 48 % humidity (20 min presaturation). Detection under white and UV light, before and after immersion in 1) anisaldehyde – sulphuric acid (followed by heating) for the detection of iridoids; 2) natural product reagent A for phenylpropanoids; 3) modified Dragendorff reagent (bismuth oxynitrate 0.17 %, sulfuric acid 3.5 %, glacial acetic acid 2 %, potassium iodide 4 %) for alkaloids. Ajugoside (hRF 29) and verbascoside (hRF 53) were found in L. cardiaca and L. sibiricus, but absent in L. japonicus. The opposite was true for leonurine (hRF 52), whereas stachydrine (hRF 14) was found in the three species. This method allows to distinguish L. japonicus from the other species, which have to be distinguished from each other through morphology.

      Evaluation of quantitative thin layer chromatography using staining reagents
      R. JOHNSSON*, G. TRÄFF, M. SUNDEN, U. ELLERVIK (*Organic Chemistry, Lund University, P.O. Box 124, SE-221 00 Lund, Sweden)

      J. Chromatogr. A 1164 (1-2), 298-305 (2007). TLC using staining reagents is fast, versatile and sometimes the only viable method method for analyzing organic compounds without chromophores. Investigation of quantitative TLC using staining reagents in combination with modern image analysis software showed that it is possible to get reliable measurements, suitable for high-throughput screening or physical organic investigations. Illustration of the range of detection and the errors for the different parts of the process, which are largely due to the staining process but can be diminished by measuring ratios of compounds.
