Theref ore in the much time , but also is rather expensive . The method of market there are both pigmental and f unctional red rice double wave2length UV spectrophotometry was also re2 or their products . The f unctional red rice or its product ported , but it requires sample pre2treatment through a was f urther divided into different grades according to its neutral aluminum oxide column and is theref ore quite complicated[11 ]. So far the best reported TL C system 1. 0 % ( mass fraction , the following is the [ 12 ] uses silica gel plate , the developing reagent of hex2 same) [9 ] . So it is very important to develop a rapid and ane acetone = 1 1 ( volu2me ratio , the following is the easy method to analyze total Monacolin K in red rice or same) and the iodine as the colorant f or the separated spots . The observation condition is under daylight . The Study[3 ] has proved that there are two f orms of reported TL C method can detect only L FM K and its lower detection limit was 10 000 ng , while the usual loading amount of standard Monacolin K was 40 000 ng.

(2) A : observed directly under 365 nm before spraying charring reagent , indicating Monacolin K itself had no fluorescence ; B : observed under day light as normal TL C method required after charring treatment , the signal were very faint ; C : observed under 365 nm after charring treatment , both L FM K and AFM K now showed bright yellow fluores2 (3) The Rf of LFM K was 0. 64 , the Rf of AFM K was 0. 025 A ( M + Na + = 404 + 23 ) : from the standard L FM K solution ; B ( M + Na + = 422 + 23 ) : from the solution of treatment No. 4 The TL C plate was observed step by step . First , in the acid form Monacolin K preparation test the plate was observed directly under daylight , under In the experiment it was f ound that if the amount of 254 nm UV light and under 365 nm UV light respective2 NaOH in acetonitrile water solution was more than a cer2 ly , and no spots could be recognized , indicating that tain amount compared to the amount of L FM K , the Monacolin K had no fluorescence reaction. Second , the L FM K could be converted completely into AFM K ( refer TL C plate was observed under daylight , after being to treatment No. 3 , 4 and 5) , but too much alkaline in sprayed with the charring reagent of 30 % H2SO4 ethanol the mixture could be harmf ul to both HPL C column and and being heated properly the plate on a hot plate ( if TL C plate . However if the amount of NaOH was not e2 over heated , the whole TL C plate will be spoiled) , and nough , L FM K was only partially converted into AFM K only faint gray spots (in fact hardly recognizable) shown (refer to treatment No. 1 , 2) , and the conversion ratio on the plate . Following the se2cond step , the TL C plate increased with the storing temperature and time ( data not was observed under 254 nm and the signals could not be enhanced by any degree , compared with observing at Additionally , we f ound that even under a very daylight. However when the TL C was observed under strong basic condition like treatment No. 6 , L FM K still 365 nm , and very bright yellow spots were found , indi2 could not be converted into Monacolin J . The conver2 sion of acid f orm Monacolin J f orm lactone f orm Mona2 cating that both L FM K and AFM K after being charred by colin K need to be f urther studied.
H2SO4 could produce yellow fluorescence under 365 nm.
Wang Qi2jun et al : Simultaneous Detection of Lactone Form and Acid Form Monacolin K by Sensitive TL C Method The result were photographed under 365 nm .
The low detection limit f or AFM K was also estimated , But the problem was that the spots of AFM K even and the result was shown in Fig. 5. The low detection did not move f orward in this TL C system . So the f urther limit was also around 30 ng. It was quite close to the screening work f or the proper mobile phases or other low detection limit of HPL C/ UV detection method , 20 ng. We supposed that such lower detec2 tion limit of this TL C system perhaps were also suitable f or the other Moncolin K analogs like Monacolin J , L , Five kinds of solvent systems , i . e . chlorof orm X , M and so on , since they share the basic common methanol = 9 1 ; hexane chlorof orm methanol = 9 3 1 ; hexane acetone = 1 1 ; chloroform methanol am2 monium hydroxide = 25 3 1 ; he2xane chloroform iso2 propanol = 6 3 1 and six kinds of TL C plates listed in the section of material and methods were tried f or screening the optimal stationary phase and mobile phase f or detecting Monacolin K. The most important part of the results were shown in Fig. 4.

The low detection limit f or L FM K was 30 ng ( refer to In this experiment we f ound that after developing Fig. 4) . It should be pointed out that the mobile phase TL C plates of the kind F254 even in different mobile temperature could slightly affect the Rfs of both L FM K phases , sprayed with 30 % H2SO4 ethanol then heated on and AFM K , but it would not interfere the re2cognition under 365 nm , the bright yellow spots of both L FM K V ali di t y of t h e Sc r e e n e d TL C Considering a lot of other compounds in red rice , in order to confirm whether this yellow fluorescence was specific f or Monacolin K or not , two f unctional red rice samples of FHQF and Xuezhikang and one pigmental red rice of HQF as well as standard Monacolin K were ap2 plied to the screened TL C system . After developed , the TL C was also observed step by step . The results were (1) Samples on all of 3 plates were the same : 1 # 500 ng LFM K plus 500 ng AFM K , 2 # 20 ng L FM K , 3 # 30 ng L FM K , 4 # 50 ng It was f ound that this novel TL C method could L FM K. In each plate , the upper arrow pointing to L FM K , and the low2 greatly improve the resolution and sensitivity f or Mona2 colin K detection. L ots of other compounds in red rice (2) Plate A : Silica Gel 60 , F254 , 0. 5 mm , Merck , Germany , samples especially in pigmental red rice had fluorescence Rf = 0. 18 and 0. 00 ; Plate B : Silica Gel 60 , F254 , 0. 25 mm , alu2 minum sheet , Merck , Germany , Rf = 0. 18 and 0. 02 ; Plate C : Silica Gel 60 , RP - 18 F254 , 0. 5 mm , chemically modified layer , Merck , J ournal of South China University of Technology (Natural Science Edition) Validity of this novel TL C method estimated with red rice samples (1) A , B , C was from same one developed TLC plate but observed under different conditions . Samples of 1 ,2 ,3 ,4 ,5 : were 300 ng LFM K, 500 ng AFM K plus 500 ng L FM K; red rice powder FHQF (4 L of 5 times dilute) ; Xuezhi Kang (4 L of 5 times dilute) ; red rice powder HQF ( 4 L spotting from 5 X dilute) , respectively. In pattern A and B , arrow a pointed to L FM K; and arrow b pointed to AFM K. In photo C , all the arrows pointed to (2) A : observed at 365 nm after spraying 30 % H2SO4 ethanol and heating ; B : observed under day light , after spraying 30 % H2SO4 ethanol and heat2 ing ; C : directly observed at 365 nm before spraying 30 % H2SO4 ethanol , indicating many other compounds in red rice has fluorescence .

daylight as done in most reported TL C methods , there In conclusion , the developed TL C system greatly were many gray spots in both f unctional and pigmental improved the resolution of Monacolin K in red rice and rice . Theref ore even with the standard Monacolin K as f or the first time allowed the simultaneous detection of control , it was difficult to judge that in pigmental rice both L FM K and AFM K. The low detection limit was there was no Monacolin K. Furthermore , the standards brought down to 30 ng , which was quite near to that of spots of 500 ng Monacolin K were very weak too ( refer to Fig. 6 B ) . However , when observed under 365 nm plicity and rapidity of TL C , this method would be very after being heated , the bright yellow Monacolin K spots usef ul monitoring Monacolin K production during the became very clear and the standard of 300 ng Monacolin fermentation process or estimation of the Monacolin K K now could be seen clearly , and what is more impor2 tant , other interfering spots were not the problem any When this method is used , attention has to be paid Endo A .
