Molecular Composition Study of Mumijo from Different Geographic Areas Using Size-Exclusion Chromatography, NMR Spectroscopy, and High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry
Four mumijo samples originated from different mountain ranges were studied using size-exclusion chromatography (SEC), Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FTICR MS), and 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. All the used analytical techniques demonstrated that the mumijo samples studied consist of a “high-molecular” fulvic-like and a low-molecular components. The second component is shown using FTICR MS and NMR methods to be predominantly a range of vegetative and animal metabolites.
