      Chinese J. Pharm. Research 42 (2), 98-104 (2023). Ganoderma lucidum is the dry fruiting body of fungus, a medicinal plant, having the effect of relieving asthma and relieving nerves. Ganoderma lucidum is widely distributed in China and mainly concentrated in Zhejiang, Anhui, Shandong, Jilin, and Fujian. In this study, the HPTLC method for quality detection and origin traceability was established towards the medicinal material produced in Fujian and other areas. HPTLC of the ethanol extracts of the sample materials on silica gel with chloroform – acetonitrile – methanol – formic acid 130:15:2:2, three times to distances of 3 cm, 6 cm, 8 cm. Detection by spraying with 3 % sulfuric acid in ethyl acetate and heating at 105°C until the bands are clearly visualized, evaluation at UV 366 nm. The bands on the thin layer chromatogram were identified by fingerprint comparison using standard samples, and cluster analysis for the data of samples from different producing areas was performed using digital characterization. As results, the HPTLC analysis detected 17 distinct bands and among them, 11 components were identified, e.g. ganoderenic acid C (hRf 0.31), ganoderic acid C2 (hRf 33), ganoderic acid l (hRf 35), ganoderic acid G (hRf 41), ganoderic acid A (hRf 44), ganoderic acid B (hRf 46), ganolactone B (hRf 53), 3β,7β,15β-trihydroxy-11,15-dihydroxy-lanostane-8-alkene-24→20 lactone (hRf 56), ganoderenic acid D (hRf 61), ganoderic acid D (hRf 63) and 20 (21)-dehydrolucidenic acid A (hRf 65). A total of 10 HPTLC bands were identified in Fujian Ganoderma lucidum, among which ganoderic acid C2, ganoderic acid D and two unknown component bands (hRf 14 and 17) were unique and could be used as markers of Fujian Ganoderma lucidum. Thus samples of Fujian Ganoderma lucidum can be differentiated from those of other areas, when the Euclidean distance is 25 in Euclidean cluster analysis.

Development of a method for identification, quantification and stability study of linalool in Homalomena aromatica Schott, a herb with anti-rheumatism, nourishing and strengthening effects, and for the treatment of stomach disease. HPTLC hyphenated with MS for linalool on silica gel with toluene - ethyl acetate 19:1. Detection  with p-anisaldehyde reagent. The hRf of linalool is 35, identification of linalool at m/z 137, (M + H)+ by using MS technique. Study of the stability of linalool by investigating the effect of acid, base, UV, sunlight, thermal stress and H2O2 on it, the highest effect was observed with acidic pH with a 65 % degradation. The content of linalool was 58 % in the volatile oil of H. aromatica.
