Separation of Diosmin, Eriocitrin, and Naringin

In this method, three Glycosidic flavonoid standards are separated with good resolution. The Cogent Bidentate C18 2.o™ Column produces high efficiency peaks with reproducible retention (see figure overlay). Separation is also observed for a small impurity peak, eluting between peaks 1 and 2. This separation of standards could be applied to more complex samples such as citrus fruit extracts.

Note: Flavonoids are an important class of compounds found in citrus fruits. They have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-carcinogenic, antihypertensive and antiarthritic activities. Therefore, there is a need for a reliable HPLC method for their separation and quantitation.
