Flavonol glycosides ofSedum telephium L. were analysed by MEKC. Baseline separation was achieved within 14 min using a fused silica capillary and a borate/phosphate buffer solution (35 mM, pH 5.8) containing 35 mM SDS and 4% MeOH. The applied voltage was 25 kV and the thermostating temperature was kept constant at 40°C. Injection was performed via the pressure mode for 3 s, the detection wavelength was 205 nm. The optimized MEKC method was used for the quantitative determination of flavonol glycosides in extracts ofS. telephium leaves.

Analysis was also performed by HPLC-MS using an electrospray ionization (ESI) interface. The good agreement between the quantitative CE results and those obtained by LC clearly demonstrated the applicability of the methods presented.
