In this study, an effective high performance liquid chromatography-diode array detector (HPLC-DAD) method was established for simultaneous determination of six marker compounds, ephedrine hydrochloride, 6-gingerol, glycyrrhizin, hesperidin, imperatorin and ferulic acid, in a Korean traditional prescription, Oyaksungisan, which is used for hemiplegia, arthralgia and paralysis. The six marker compounds of Oyaksungisan were separated on a LUNA C18 column (S-5 μm, 4.6 mm I.D. × 250 mm) at a column temperature of 35°C. The gradient elution was composed of water with 0.1% trifluoroacetic acid and methanol. The detection UV wavelengths were set at 207, 250, 280 and 320 nm. Calibration curves for the six compounds showed good linear regressions (R (2) > 0.9999). The limits of detection and limits of quantification were within the ranges 0.003-0.01 and 0.01-0.04 μg/ml, respectively. The relative standard deviation (RSD) values of intra- and inter-day testing were within the ranges 0.10-1.82 and 0.04-1.59%, respectively. The results of the recovery test were 95.05-104.27% with a RSD value of 0.11-1.85%. In conclusion, the simultaneous determination method developed was useful in the quality evaluation of Oyaksungisan.

    ABSTRACT: A simple high performance liquid chromatography - diode array detector (HPLC-DAD) method has been developed and validated for simultaneous determination of the six components (cinnamic acid, cinnamaldehyde, eugenol, atractylenolide I, atractylenolide III, and ergosterol) in Oryeongsan. In addition, identification of six marker compounds was conducted by a LC-MS/MS analysis. The six compounds in Oryeongsan were separated on Shishedo C18 column (5 μm, 4.6 × 250 mm) at a column temperature of 30°C. The mobile phase was a mixture of 0.1% trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) water and acetonitrile employing gradient elution at a flow rate of 1.0 mL/min. The detection wavelength was set at 205, 250, 280, and 330 nm. The developed method had good linearity (R2 > 0.9997) and the limit of detection (LOD) and limit of quantification (LOQ) were observed within the ranges 0.01~0.15 and 0.05~0.45 μg/mL, respectively. The relative standard deviation (RSD) values of intra-and inter-day testing were indicated that less than 3% and 90.31~103.31% of accuracy. The results of recovery test were 90.56~106.72% and RSD range was measured from 0.84 to 2.95%. In conclusion, this HPLC-DAD method has been successfully applied to the simultaneous determination of six compounds in Oryeongsan samples.

    ABSTRACT: A simple and convenient method was established for simultaneous quantitative determination of piperine and piperlonguminine in dried fruits of Piper longum and allied plants. The average content of piperine in P. longum (18.26 mg/g, range 12.05-33.23 mg/g) was about one half that of P. nigrum (40.09 mg/g, range 29.57-54.23 mg/g), but the content of piperlonguminine in P. longum was in the range of 0.42-1.82 mg/g, and the average content of piperlonguminne (0.91 mg/g) was about seven times higher than that in P. nigrum (0.13 mg/g). A sample of P. longum from Vietnam and a sample of P. retrofractum collected in Ishigaki, Japan, showed high contents of piperine and piperlonguminine. On the other hand, a sample of P. betle collected in Taiwan showed low content of piperine, and piperlonguminine was not detected.

    ABSTRACT: An effective method of high performance liquid chromatography-diode array detector (HPLC-DAD) was developed for the simultaneous quantification of two marker compounds, pectolinarin and pectolinarigenin, in Cirsium setidens Nakai, a Korean wild herb. The two marker compounds of C. setidens were separated on a C18 column with a gradient system. The calibration curves of the two standard compounds exhibited good linearity (R 2 >0.9992). The limits of detection (LOD) values of pectolinarin and pectolinarigenin were 0.52 and 0.41 μg/mL, respectively, while their limits of quantification (LOQ) values were 1.57 and 1.25 μg/mL, respectively. The relative standard deviations (RSDs) of the data of the intra- and inter-day experiments were less than 1.65 and 2.78%, respectively. The results of the recovery test were 98.06–105.81% with an RSD value of 1.87–3.50%. In conclusion, the results of validation showed that the proposed HPLC method was useful for the quantification of the two marker compounds in C. setidens.
