New Method for Propolis Quality Control Developed

Determination of Twelve Active Compounds in Propolis Using Ultra-Performance Liquid Chromatography
Chinese Journal of Chromatography, 2007 Nov;25(6):857-60

In this study, a fast, selective and sensitive ultra-performance liquid chromatographic method (UPLC) with photodiode array detection (DAD) was developed to determine 12 active compounds, such as flavonoids, ferulic acid, caffeic acid phenethyl ester, etc. in propolis...

This method can be used as a novel method for quality control of propolis. The results are validated through testing 106 propolis samples from various production areas.
