High performance liquid chromatography coupled to nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and mass spectrometry applied to plant products: Identification of ecdysteroids fromSilene otites
HPLC coupled in parallel to nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometry (MS) has been used to obtain1H NMR and mass spectra of a number of ecdysteroids present in an extract of the plantSilene otites. Reversed phase gradient chromatography was performed using a D20-acetonitrile-based solvent system. NMR and mass spectra were obtained for integristerone A, 20-hydroxyecdysone, 2-deoxy-20-hydroxyecdysone and 2-deoxyecdysone to provide structural confirmation using continuous and stopped flow HPLC-NMR. The combined HPLC-NMR-MS system described here provided a more comprehensive analysis of the ecdysteroids present in the extract than HPLC-NMR alone.
