ABSTRACT: To study the purification effect of macroporous resin combined with ZTC natural clarifying agent on Folium Gynurae Divaricatae extracts and to determine the ideal purification process.
The content of total flavonoids in Folium Gynurae Divaricatae was determined by ultraviolet spectrophotometry spectrophotometer. The reservation ratio and transferring ratio of total flavonoids were used as indicator to detect such impacting factors as the macroporous resin model, the pH value of ethanol-extraction liquid and elution agent as well as cleaning agents, the concentration of ethanol-extraction liquid, the flow speed for adsorption, the ratio of polyamide to crude drug, the ratio of diameter to height of polyamide column, the flow speed of cleaning agents, the alcohol content and flow speed of the elution agent.
The optimized purification conditions of total flavonoids in Folium Gynurae Divaricatae were as follows: the macroporous resin model was HPD600, the pH value of ethanol-extraction liquid and elution agent as well as cleaning agents was adjusted to 6.0, the concentration of extraction liquid was 0.25 g x mL(-1), the flow speed for adsorption was 2 BV x h(-1), the ratio of crude drug and the resin was 4:1, the ratio of diameter to height of resin column was 1:10, the flow speed of cleaning agents was 5 BV x h(-1), the dosage of cleaning agents was 5 BV, the dosage of elution agent was 9 BV, with 70% alcohol as elution agent, and the flow speed of elution agent as 5 BV x h(-1). Under the purification condition, the content of total flavonoids increased from 2.47% to 24.2%.
Macroporous resin and ZTC natural clarifying agent used in combination can improve the internal quality of the product, shorten the production cycle, reduce use and cost of organic solvent, thus it is worth popularizing.
