  1. Statistical Model Based HPLC Analytical Method Adjustment Strategy to Adapt to Different Sets of Analytes in Complicated Samples

    Binjun Yan, Xue Bai, Yunjie Sheng and Fanzhu Li

    Version of Record online: 19 MAY 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/pca.2690

    On account of the complicated compositions of the products like traditional Chinese medicines and functional foods, it is common practice to determine different sets of analytes in the same product for different purposes. To efficiently develop the corresponding HPLC methods, a statistical model based analytical method adjustment strategy was proposed. The results of this work demonstrated that this strategy was able to develop HPLC methods rationally and rapidly in the adaption of different sets of analytes.

  2. Laser Desorption/Ionisation Mass Spectrometry Imaging of European Yew (Taxus baccata) on Gold Nanoparticle-enhanced Target

    Gold nanoparticle-enhanced target (AuNPET) was used for laser desorption/ionisation mass spectrometry imaging of substances of European yew (Taxus baccata L.) twig cross-section surface. The analysis was performed in order to determine the spatial distribution of primary and specialised metabolites including diterpenoid taxanes, toxic compounds that are characteristic of the Taxus family.

  3. Untargeted Metabolomic Analysis of Capsicum spp. by GC–MS

    Version of Record online: 11 MAY 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/pca.2692

    Sixty Capsicum genotypes of four species were evaluated by untargeted metabolomics by GC-MS. Multivariate data processing by PCA analyses of polar metabolites did not allow for grouping by species. However, outlying genotypes were influenced mainly by their high sucrose, fructose, and dihydrocapsaicin content.

  4. Localisation of Two Bioactive Labdane Diterpenoids in the Peltate Glandular Trichomes of Leonurus japonicus by Laser Microdissection Coupled with UPLC-MS/MS

    Version of Record online: 9 MAY 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/pca.2687

    Two labdane diterpenoids were localized in the peltate glandular trichomes of a Labiatae medicinal plant Leonurus japonicas using laser microdissection (LMD) in combination with UPLC-MS/MS. Their anti-platelet aggregation activity, anti-inflammatory activity, and anti-proliferative effect on several cancer cell lines were observed. The findings suggested an efficient approach to explore bioactive natural products from plant glandular trichomes with LMD-UPLC/MS/MS.

  5. Development of SECheM Concept for Isolation and Chemical Modification of Gossypol Directly from Cienfuegosia digitata

    Version of Record online: 5 MAY 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/pca.2688

    The first “one-pot” extraction/semi-synthesis methodology that uses ground plant as starting material in organic synthesis is described. This concept called SECHeM allows instantaneous trapping of freshly extracted gossypol through an imination reaction involving a primary amine as aniline and the gossypol aldehyde group. Laborious separation and purification steps are prevented through this strategy that led to more stable gossypol Shift base derivative. The developed methodology was successfully extended to 17 other amines underlining its efficiency and robustness.
