New Book for the Analysis of Medicinal Plants by HPTLC
This new book provides all of the theoretical and technical information needed to perform reliable and reproducible high performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC) to establish the identity, purity, quality, and stability of raw materials, extracts, and finished botanical products. "High-Performance Thin-Layer Chromatography for the Analysis of Medicinal Plants" presents a complete overview of the technique and common applications of HPTLC in herbal analysis. It will help the analyst answer questions such as: Am I paying for a high-quality material, but getting a cheap adulterant? Is this raw material worth its price? Does this product comply with the claim on its label? Has the composition of this product changed after being on the shelf for more than a year? High-Performance Thin-Layer Chromatography for the Analysis of Medicinal Plants is essential for analysts, quality assurance professionals, and regulators seeking a comprehensive text on how to use HPTLC to determine whether botanicals comply with current, good manufacturing practices. It will also benefit students in pharmacognosy, phytopharmacy, pharmaceutical biology, and analytical chemistry programs.
