[HPLC Specific Fingerprint of Alcohol Extract of Andrographis paniculata].Zhong Yao Cai. 2015 Jul; 38(7):1505-8.ZY
To establish the specific fingerprint of alcohol extract of Andrographis paniculata by HPLC.
The analysis was performed on Cosmosil 5C18 -MS-II (250 mm x 4. 6 mm, 5 µm) column, with gradient phase consisting of acetonitrile and water at the flow rate of 1. 0 mL/min. The UV detection wavelength was set at 225 nm, and column temperature was 30 °C.
The specific fingerprint chromatogram was established and seven common peaks were identified by comparison with the reference standards and LC-MS. The relative retention times were 1. 00 (No. 1, andrographolide), 1. 04 (No. 2, deoxyandrographoside), 1. 07 (No. 3, isoandrographolide), 1. 10 (No. 4, 14-deoxy-11, 12-didehydroandrographoside), 1. 50 (No. 5, neoandrographolide), 1. 75 (No. 6, deoxyandrographolide) and 1. 79 (No. 7, dehydroandrographolide).
The method is simple and reproducible with high precision, which can provide the basis for the quality control and evaluation of alcohol extract of Andrographis paniculata and its preparations.
