Eriocotrin, Hesperidin, Naringin, Diosmin

In this method, the Hesperidin extract was spiked with three glycosidic flavonoids. The Cogent Phenyl Hydride Column was used to separate the main component of the extract (Hesperidin) and three standards. The MS detection helped to distinguish between the Naringin peak of the standard and a small impurity peak (peak marked “?”). When the Hesperidin extract sample was analyzed, only peaks for Hesperidin and a small peak for Dosmin were detected.

Note: Flavonoids are phenolic substances isolated from a variety of plants and fruits. They are low molecular weight compounds and in plants they are usually bound to sugar molecules as O-glycosides. Flavonoids are present in foods and beverages of plant origin, such as fruits, vegetables, tea, wine etc. They can be divided into fourteen classes, including flavonols, flavones, anthocyanins, isoflavonoids, and flavanones. They have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-carcinogenic, antihypertensive and anti-arthritic, and free radical scavenging properties.
