Dengtaiye tablet has been used to treat chronic bronchitis cough. Scholarisine, 19-epischolarisine, vallesamine, and picrinine are the representative constituents of Dengtaiye. A rapid and sensitive assay based on supercritical fluid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry has been developed and validated for the determination of the diastereoisomers of scholarisine and 19-epischolarisine, vallesamine, and picrinine in rat plasma using lamotrigine as internal standard. The analysis in a run time of only 6 min was performed on an ACQUITY UPC2 TrefoilTM BEH 2-EP column (3.0 × 150 mm, 2.5 μm) at 50oC. The mobile phase consisting of carbon dioxide and methanol (2 mM ammonium formate) was performed as follows: 15% methanol (2 mM ammonium formate) maintained at 0-2 min, 15-19% methanol (2 mM ammonium formate) at 2-4 min, 19-15% methanol (2 mM ammonium formate) at 4-6 min. The flow rate was 1.50 mL/min. The assay was linear over the concentration ranges 50-10000 pg/mL for scholarisine, 19-epischolarisine, vallesamine, and picrinine with corresponding lower limits of quantitation of 50 pg/mL. Intra- and interday precisions were in the range 1.42-12.85% with accuracies in the range -11.71-2.48%. The method was successfully applied to a pharmacokinetic study involving a single oral administration of 108 mg/kg Dengtaiye tablet to rats. © 2016 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim. Source
