      H. GUO (Guo Hongyan), J. LI (Li Jun)* (*Coll. Of Ningxia Vocat. & Techn., Ningxia Res. Cent. for the Devel. & Util. of Trad. Chinese Med. mater., Ningxia, Yinchuan 750021, China,

      Chinese J. Ethnomed. & Ethnopharm. 32 (22), 42-46 (2023). Sophora alopecuroides is a medicinal plant growing in Northern China, containing alkaloids, flavonoids, volatile oils and amino acids. It has antipyretic detoxification, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, as well as analgesic effects, and is the main effective ingredient in some TCM mixtures widely used in clinical practice. This research team developed a medicinal gel, Kudouzi Ningjiaoji gel, which has good clinical results in the treatment of acne, pustules and other diseases. For quality control, TLC of the extracts of Kudouzi Ningjiaoji gel on silica gel with dichloromethane – methanol – ammonia water 50:6:1. Detection in daylight after spraying with a solution of bismuth potassium basic nitrate 0.85 g, glacial acetic acid 10 mL, water 40 mL and potassium iodide 2 g. Identification by comparing of sample fingerprints with those standards sophoridine and matrine.

      J. Chinese Pharm. 34 (1), 52-56 (2023). Inonotus obliquus is a new source of fungal medicine, containing polysaccharides, polyphenols, triterpenoids, sterols and folic acid derivatives, with various pharmacological effects such as anti-tumor, hypoglycemic, antioxidant, and antiviral. For identification, TLC of its extracts on silica gel, A) for thrombotic acid, with chloroform – toluene – ethyl acetate – methanol 10:4:1:1; and B) for inotodiol, with dichloromethane – toluene – ethyl acetate – methanol 100:40:3:3. Detection for both by spraying with 5 % phosphomolybdate in ethanol and heating at 105°C until the zones are visible in daylight. Identification by fingerprint comparison with the standard drug Inonotus obliquus and the standards thrombotic acid and inotodiol. Chemical pattern recognition analysis was applied on resulting TLC and HPLC data (such as, cluster analysis, principal component analysis, orthozonal least squares-discriminant analysis) to evaluate the quality of the medicine.
