TLC:-
• Test solution:-
Extract 1gm of powdered drug with methanol(3*15 ml) by cold
maceration for 15 min. Filter the methanolic extract, concentrate and make
up the volume to 10 ml.
• Standard solution:-
Dissolve 10 mg of (+) catechin* in 100 ml of methanol in a volumetric flask.
• Prodedure:-
Apply 10 μl of test solution and standard solution of (+) catechin separately
on precoated silica gel 60 F254 plate of uniform thickness of 0.2 mm.
Develop the plate in the solvent system to a distance of 8cm.

• Visualization:-
Spray the plate with anisaldehyde-sulphuric acid
reagent and heat the plate at 70 degree till the
coloured bands develop. Note the R1 and colour of
the resolved bands.
• Evaluation:-
A band (Rf 0.57) corresponding to (+) catechin is
visible in both standard and test solution tracks.

• TLC densitometric estimation (+) catechin.
 Solvent system-
• Toluene : Ethyl acetate : Formic acid : menthol: (3 : 3 : 0.8 : 0.2).
 TLC plates-
• Procoated silica gel 60 F254 of uniform thickness of 0.2mm.
 Scanning-
• Under Uv light at 278 nm.
 Standard solution-
• Dissolve 10 mg of (+) catechin in 100 ml of methanol in a volumetric
flask. From this stock solution prepare standard solution of 24 to 72
microgram/ml by transferring aliquots (6 to 18 ml) of stock solution to
25 ml volumetric flask and adjusting the volume to 25 ml with methanol.

 Test solution-
• Take 1 gm of powdered drug in a conical flask and extract with
methanol (4*25 ml). Pool the methanol extracts, concentrate and
makeup the volume to 25 ml with methanol.
 Calibration curve-
• Apply 10 μl of the standard solution (240 to 720 ng per spot) on a
precoated TLC plate. Develop the plate in the solvent system in twin
trough chamber to a distance of 8cm. Scan the plates
densitometrically at 278 nm. Record the peak area and prepare the
calibration curve by plotting peak area vs concentration of (+)
catechin applied.
