Pharmaceutical and Herbal Fingerprinting by Means of Chromatographic Techniques

Description

In spite of a continuous progress in the performance of all chromatographic techniques, separation, identification, and quantification of complex mixtures still remains a challenging analytical task. Among the most sensitive fields of chromatographic applications, characterization of pharmaceutical preparations and herbal materials ought to be named.

The quality control of pharmaceutical preparations poses very strict regime on monitoring of active ingredients, excipients, and impurities contained therein. In recent years, the pharmaceutical markets have been invaded by the counterfeit products, the problem which raises the necessity to develop rapid yet reliable chromatographic procedures of distinguishing between the legal and illegal products. A similar problem with medicinal plants is a good enough reason to look for rapid and reliable chromatographic procedures enabling identification of botanical species also.

To this effect, we invite separation scientists active in fingerprinting of complex mixtures by means of GC, HPLC, TLC, electrophoretic, and hyphenated separation techniques to contribute the original research articles as well as review articles which might represent the state-of-the-art in rapid assessment of complex organic mixtures. In that way, we would like to stimulate a wide interest of the chromatographic community in the advantages of fingerprinting in rapid screening of complex pharmaceutical, botanical, and related mixtures and also to instigate its future creativity and inventiveness. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Fingerprinting of pharmaceuticals by means of thin-layer chromatography (TLC)
  • Fingerprinting of medicinal plants by means of thin-layer chromatography (TLC)
  • Fingerprinting of pharmaceuticals by means of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)
  • Fingerprinting of medicinal plants by means of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)
  • Fingerprinting of pharmaceuticals by means of gas chromatography (GC)
  • Fingerprinting of medicinal plants by means of gas chromatography (GC)
  • Fingerprinting of pharmaceuticals by means of electrophoretic techniques
  • Fingerprinting of medicinal plants by means of electrophoretic techniques
  • Chemometric evaluation of chromatographic fingerprints
