Chromatographic and electrophoretic methods for pharmaceutically active compounds in Rhododendron dauricum

J Chromatogr B Analyt Technol Biomed Life Sci. 2004 Dec 5;812(1-2):231-40. doi: 10.1016/j.jchromb.2004.06.048.


In this review, chemical constituents present in Rhododendron dauricum L. were briefly surveyed, and the methods of pretreatment of this plant prior to analysis were also summarized. The analysis methods reported for determining pharmaceutically active compounds in R. dauricum L. include gas chromatography with mass spectrscopy, thin layer chromatography (TLC), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and capillary electrophoresis (CE). In addition, both advantages and disadvantages of the above methods were mentioned.
