Quantification and Identification of Bioactive Eugenol in Myristica fragrans Seed Using Validated High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography Technique.
A sensitive, selective, precise and stability indicating high-performance thin layer chromatographicmethod (HPTLC) was developed and validated for analysis of eugenol from methanolic extract of Myristica fragrans seed. The chromatography study was performed on aluminium foil-backed silica gel 60 F-254 HPTLC plates using toluene-ethyl acetate-formic acid (2:5:0.2, v/v/v) as the mobile phase. The developed analytical method were found to be linear in the concentration range of 100-1000 ng band-1 with regression value closer to unity (r2=0.998). The developed system was found to give compact spots for eugenol (Rf 0.55) with the limit of detection and limit of quantification (21 and 63 ng band-1) respectively. Further the study showed recovery of eugenol in the range of 99.3-99.8% with the precision value ≤ 1.85% and ≤ 1.71%.
