Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To study the variation regularity of chemical constituents contained in Euphorbia ebracteolata after vinegar processing.

METHOD:

The colorimetric method was adopted for determining the variation of total lactone content in toxic constituents contained in E. ebracteolata decoction, with Kedde as the coloring reagent. The HPLC method was used for detecting the content variation of jolkinolide B and jolkinolide C, both were active constituents contained in E. ebracteolata decoction, before and after roasting with vinegar, in which Kromasil-ODS column (4.6 mm x 250 mm, 5 microm) was adopted, with the detection wavelength of 290 nm, column temperature at 25 degrees C , gradient elution with acetonitrile and water and the flow rate of 1.0 mL x min(-1).

RESULT:

After roasting with vinegar, the total lactone content in E. ebracteolata was reduced from 0.60 to 0.45 mg x g(-1) , with active constituents, jolkinolide B and jolkinolide C, increased to varying degrees. The established chromatographic fingerprint contained risk information and could reflect the overall variation regularity of chemical constituents after roasting with vinegar.

CONCLUSION:

The chemical constituents of E. ebracteolata show significantly changes, especially a reduced toxicity, after roasting with vinegar. The increase in its efficacy may be related to the variation of these constituents.
