About this book


This second edition of Plant Drug Analysis includes nearly 200 new color photographs of superb quality demonstrating chromatograms of all relevant standard drugs. The atlas will be a useful reference for analyzing plant drugs, identifying unknown drugs or monitoring the purity or constituents of a given drug.
All drugs presented meet the standard of the official pharmacopoeia and originate from well defined botanical sources. With this guide one can easily use the technique of thin layer chromatography without previous pharmacognostic training. Only commercially available equipment and reagents are needed, the sources as well as all practical details are given.
