Abstract

A simple, sensitive, and rapid chemiluminescence method was developed for the detection and quantification of selected derivatives of artemisinin. It was found that the chemiluminescence (CL) signal resulting from the alkaline luminol reaction of the artemisinin derivatives in the presence of hematin was linear over a wide concentration range. We report results that suggest that a visual test or a test involving digital image capture may be used in addition to a field-ready instrumental approach to combat drug counterfeiting of malarial therapies.
