Solid phase extraction applied to plant matrices is nowadays a well validated technique allowing the concentration and purification of selected secondary metabolites for subsequent analysis. In this short communication we screened the efficiency of 16 selected solid supports including layered structures (hydrotalcites and zirconium phosphate), magnesium oxide and hydroxide, and finally the phyllosilicates talc and bentonite for the selective concentration of the anthraquinone emodin from raw solid extracts of Polygonum cuspidatum Siebold & Zucc. (sin. Reynoutria japonica Houtt.) (Polygonaceae), commonly known as "Japanese knotweed". An ethanolic solution of sample extract from this plant was vigorously mixed with fixed quantities of each solid support. Subsequent HPLC analysis, coupled to photodiode array detection, revealed that, among the solid supports assayed, the hydrotalcite zinc aluminum oleate and magnesium oxide were largely the most effective to this concern. Both were able to extract emodin from the raw extract in percentages of 81.5 % and 92.4 %, respectively. The application of the title supports for the extraction and concentration in the solid phase of anthraquinones from raw plant extracts have been reported herein for the first time.

Abstract

Solid phase extraction applied to plant matrices is nowadays a well validated technique allowing the concentration and purification of selected secondary metabolites for subsequent analysis. In this short communication we screened the efficiency of 16 selected solid supports including layered structures (hydrotalcites and zirconium phosphate), magnesium oxide and hydroxide, and finally the phyllosilicates talc and bentonite for the selective concentration of the anthraquinone emodin from raw solid extracts of Polygonum cuspidatum Siebold & Zucc. (sin. Reynoutria japonica Houtt.) (Polygonaceae), commonly known as "Japanese knotweed". An ethanolic solution of sample extract from this plant was vigorously mixed with fixed quantities of each solid support. Subsequent HPLC analysis, coupled to photodiode array detection, revealed that, among the solid supports assayed, the hydrotalcite zinc aluminum oleate and magnesium oxide were largely the most effective to this concern. Both were able to extract emodin from the raw extract in percentages of 81.5 % and 92.4 %, respectively. The application of the title supports for the extraction and concentration in the solid phase of anthraquinones from raw plant extracts have been reported herein for the first time.
