Abstract In this study, a rapid and reliable assay has been developed for quantification of pinane monoterpene glycosides in Cortex Moutan; it is based on capillary high performance liquid chromatography coupled with electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (capillary HPLC,ESI MS). This method utilizes capillary HPLC for the separation of seven pinane monoterpene glycosides in a methanol extract of the botanical sample followed by negative ion electrospray ionization and single ion monitoring (SIM). The compounds of interest in the sample were unambiguously identified on the basis of information about retention time and quasi-molecular ions ([M,H],) or adduct ions ([M+HCOO],). Validation parameters of the method were established. The linearity range was 1.01,105.5 ,g/mL with the square of correlation coefficients lying in the range of 0.9965,0.9997, limits of detection were on the fmol level, the average recoveries varied between 91.8 and 101.0%, and good precision values (RSD, 1.2,4.91%) for peak area were obtained. After validation, the applicability of the method for determination of these pinane monoterpene glycosides in Cortex Moutan has been demonstrated. [source]

A fast high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method coupled with diode-array detection (DAD) and electrospray ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (ESI-TOFMS) has been developed for rapid separation and sensitive identification of major constituents in Radix Paeoniae Rubra (RPR). The total analysis time on a short column packed with 1.8-m porous particles was about 20,min without a loss in resolution, six times faster than the performance of a conventional column analysis (115,min). The MS fragmentation behavior and structural characterization of major compounds in RPR were investigated here for the first time. The targets were rapidly screened from RPR matrix using a narrow mass window of 0.01,Da to restructure extracted ion chromatograms. Accurate mass measurements (less than 5,ppm error) for both the deprotonated molecule and characteristic fragment ions represent reliable identification criteria for these compounds in complex matrices with similar if not even better performance compared with tandem mass spectrometry. A total of 26 components were screened and identified in RPR including 11 monoterpene glycosides, 11 galloyl glucoses and 4 other phenolic compounds. From the point of time savings, resolving power, accurate mass measurement capability and full spectral sensitivity, the established fast HPLC/DAD/TOFMS method turns out to be a highly useful technique to identify constituents in complex herbal medicines.

Characterization of compounds in the Chinese herbal drug Mu-Dan-Pi by liquid chromatography coupled to electrospray ionization mass spectrometry

Cortex Moutan is a well-known traditional Chinese medicine derived from Paeonia suffruticosa ANDREWS. However, root cortices of P. delavayi and P. decomposita also are used under the name of this drug in some regions such as Yunnan and Sichuan Provinces, respectively. In order to make a comparison of their chemical constituents, the compounds of the three Paeonia species were analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography-diode array detection/electrospray ionization and quadrupole-time-of-flight tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-DAD/ESI-MS2). A total of 50 compounds were observed in the 50% (v/v) methanolic extracts, including 17 monoterpenes, 14 galloyl glucoses, 10 acetophenones, 5 phenolic acids, 3 flavonoids and 1 triterpene. These chemical constituents were separated on a C18 column and identified or tentatively characterized based on UV spectra and MS fragmentation behavior. The chemical compositions of the three Paeonia species were found to have many differences. Paeonol was the predominant constituent of P. suffruticosa and P. decomposita, while P. delavayi contained albiflorin and more galloyl glucoses than the other two Paeonia species. Most of these identified compounds have been reported from P. delavayi and P. decomposita for the first time. The ESI-MS fragmentation behavior of monoterpene glycosides, acetophenones and galloyl glucoses was also investigated successively, and appropriate characteristic pathways were proposed. The large differences in chemical compounds among the three Paeonia species strongly encouraged further comparison of the bioactivities of these three species. Copyright 2006 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
