Michael Paul, Gerit Brüning, Jochen Bergmann and Johann Jauch A Thin-layer Chromatography Method for the Identification of Three Different Olibanum Resins (Boswellia serrata, Boswellia papyrifera and Boswellia carterii, respectively, Boswellia sacra) Phytochemical Analysis 23

A thin-layer chromatography method was developed, allowing unambiguous identification of three different and pharmacologically interesting olibanum species (Boswellia papyrifera Hochst., Boswellia serrata Roxb. and Boswellia carterii Birdw., respectively Boswellia sacra Flueck.). For Boswellia papyrifera incensole and incensole acetate are specific biomarkers. Boswellia carterii/Boswella sacra reveal a significant ß-caryophyllene-oxide spot. Boswellia serrata can be identified by a strong serratol spot and a sharp 3-oxo-8,24-dien-tirucallic acid spot. The method can be used for quality control of purchased olibanum samples.
