Sanhua decoction, a famous Chinese herbal formula has been widely used for the treatment of stroke. In our study, a rapid, swift and straightforward analytical method with the help of UHPLC-FT-ICR-MS/MS was successfully developed for the first time to separate and identify the chemical constituents of Sanhua decoction. Chromatography was performed on a Universal XB C18 column (150 mm × 2.1 mm, 1.8 μm) using a mobile phase containing 0.1% formic acid–water (A) and acetonitrile (B). A total of 137 compounds in Sanhua decoction were identified or tentatively characterized. The findings revealed the fact that Sanhua decoction mainly contains flavonoids (in Aurantii fructus immaturus and Rheum palmatum L.), anthraquinones (in Rheum palmatum L.), coumarins (in Notopterygii Rhizoma Et Radix), phenylpropanoid glycosides, alkaloids and lignans (in Magnoliae Officmalis Cortex), which made up the key ingredients existing in Sanhua decoction. This study is hoped to be meaningful for the characterization of components in other traditional Chinese medicines, and lay the foundation for research on the pharmacology of Sanhua decoction.

Abstract A Chinese herbal formula of Anti-Renal Interstitial Fibrosis I Decoction (ARIF I) is composed of Eucommia ulmoides Oliv., Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi, and Rheum. officinale Baill., and it has been used for the treatment of chronic kidney disease for many years. However, the comprehensive chemical analysis of the formulated ARIF I has yet to be clarified. In this study, an ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled with hybrid quadrupole-orbitrap high resolution mass spectro...

Abstract An effective strategy based on high-speed counter-current chromatography (HSCCC) knockout combination with HPLC–DAD–QTOF-MS/MS analysis were developed to identify minor lignans, alkaloids, and phenylpropanoid glycosides in M. officinalis. Petroleum ether/ethyl acetate/methanol/water (8:4:7:5, v/v/v/v) as solvent system was firstly selected to separate the crude extract of M. officinalis. Two major lignans, honokiol and magnolol were knocked out, and minor components were enriched. Then,...

Aurantii fructus (AF) is a traditional Chinese medicine that has been used to improve gastrointestinal motility disorders for over a thousand years, but there is no exhaustive identification of the basic chemical components and comprehensive quality control of this herb. In this study, high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with quadrupole time of flight mass spectrometry (HPLC-Q-TOF-MS) and gas chromatography coupled mass spectrometry (GC-MS) were employed to identify the basic chemical...

Abstract A method of ultra high performance liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry was developed for the simultaneous quantification of 33 active components including 26 coumarins and 7 phenolic acid esters in Notopterygii Rhizoma et Radix (NRR). Chromatographic separation was achieved on a Kinetex® C18 column (100 mm × 2.1 mm i.d.; 2.6 μm) with a gradient elution in 18 min. Electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometric detection was conducted in the positive and negative ioniza...

Abstract Sijunzi decoction, a renowned Chinese prescription has long been utilized to treat gastrointestinal problems. In the context of this research work, the use of Ultra high performance liquid chromatography combined with Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry was made to separate and characterize the components of Sijunzi decoction. The performance of Liquid chromatography was carried out on a C8 column (150 mm × 2.1 mm, 1.8 μm); moreover, the mobile phase were consist...

Abstract Gegenqinlian decoction (GQLD) as a traditional Chinese medical (TCM) prescription is made from four Chinese herbs and has been used for centuries to treat pyrexia and diarrhea. In this work, an ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled with Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (UHPLC-FT-ICR-MS) method was established to profile the metabolic fate of GQLD in rat plasma, urine, bile and feces. The analysis was performed on a Waters Acquity UPLC HSS T3 col...

Abstract Chemical profiling of natural products by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was critical for understanding of their clinical bioactivities, and sample pretreatment steps have been considered as a bottleneck for analysis. Currently, concerted efforts have been made to develop sample pretreatment methods with high efficiency, low solvent and time consumptions. Here, a simple and efficient online extraction (OLE) strategy coupled with HPLC–diode array detector–quadrupole time-o...

Abstract Rhodiola crenulata has been widely used as a health food, antifatigue and antidepressant in China and many other countries for centuries. However, to date the metabolism of it in vivo still remains unclear. In this study, UHPLC-FT-ICR MS was used to analyze the major components and their metabolites in rats after oral administration of Rhodiola crenulata for the first time. A total of 179 constituents, including 37 prototype compounds and 142 metabolites (89 phase I metabolites and 53 p...

Magnolol, a neolignan compound isolated from traditional Chinese medicine Magnolia officinalis, has a potentially therapeutic influence on ischemic stroke. Previous studies have demonstrated that cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I-R) and blood–brain barrier (BBB) are involved in the pathogeneses of stroke. Therefore, in vivo and in vitro studies were designed to investigate the effects of magnolol on I-R-induced neural injury and BBB dysfunction. In cerebral I-R model of mice, cerebral infarct vol...

Abstract A recent study reported that nobiletin is an active ingredient in Fructus Aurantii immaturus and Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae, which may be capable of preventing ischemic stroke. Therefore, the present study aimed to determine the neuroprotective effects of nobiletin, and to evaluate whether it could ameliorate isoflurane‑induced cognitive impairment via antioxidant, anti‑inflammatory and anti‑apoptotic effects in aging rats. Male Sprague‑Dawley rats (age, 18 months) were used to analy...
