Abstract
Cortex Fraxini is an important traditional Chinese medicine. In this work, a rapid and reliable homogenate extraction method was applied for the fast extraction for Cortex Fraxini, and the method was optimized by response surface methodology. Ultra high performance liquid chromatography combined with Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry and gas chromatography with mass spectrometry were established for the separation and characterization of the constituents of Cortex Fraxini. Liquid chromatography separation was conducted on a C18 column (150 mm × 2.1 mm, 1.8 μm), and gas chromatography separation was performed on a capillary with a 5% phenyl-methylpolysiloxane stationary phase (30 m × 0.25 mm × 0.25 mm) by injection of silylated samples. According to the results, 33 chemical compounds were characterized by liquid chromatography with mass spectrometry, and 11 chemical compounds were characterized by gas chromatography with mass spectrometry, and coumarins were the major components characterized by both gas chromatography with mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography with mass spectrometry. The proposed homogenate extraction was an efficient and rapid method, and coumarins, phenylethanoid glycosides, iridoid glycosides, phenylpropanoids and lignans were the main constituents of Cortex Fraxini. This work laid the foundation for further study of Cortex Fraxini and will be helpful for the rapid extraction and characterization of ingredients in other traditional Chinese medicines.

Rhubarb is one of the most popular traditional Chinese medicines and has been used for thousands of years in many Asian countries. Prepared rhubarb is obtained by steaming raw rhubarb with glutinous rice wine until it turned black in appearance both inside and outside. After processing, the therapeutic effects of prepared rhubarb change a lot. To find out the exact compound changes of the chemical profile in a decoction of rhubarb after processing and to clarify the material basis of the changed...

Abstract Polyphenols, including glycosylated polyphenols, were analyzed via a procedure based on injection-port derivatization coupled to gas chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (GC–MS/MS). The polyphenols in lyophilized fruit samples were extracted with an acidified MeOH mixture assisted by ultrasound. Samples were dried under vacuum, and carbonyl groups were protected with methoxylamine. Free hydroxyl groups were subsequently silylated in-port. Mass fragmentations of 17 polyphenol and glyc...

Sulfur fumigation has recently been used during the postharvest handling of rhubarb to reduce the drying duration and control pests. However, a few reports question the effect of sulfur fumigation on the bioactive components of rhubarb, which is crucial for the quality evaluation of the herbal medicine. The bottleneck limiting the study comes from the complex compounds that exist in herb samples with diverse structural features, wide concentration range and the difficulty to obtain all the refer...

The olive tree (Olea europaea L., Oleaceae) is one of the most important fruit trees in Mediterranean basin and has been associated with numerous biological assets. These effects have been mainly attributed to certain phenolic compounds found in fruits, olive oil and by-products of olive oil production. However, other Olea organs such as stems, roots and drupe stones have received little attention leading to limited knowledge about their phytochemical content. Thus, the main goal of the current ...
