Practical 2: Identification and quantification of taxifolin from milk thistle

Aim: to Identify and quantify the amount of taxifolin from three samples Silymarin stock solution, taxifolin and silybum marianum extract. `

Methodology: Using auto-pipette (20-100 microlitre), pipetted 0.06 mg of Taxifolin was added to 10ml conical flask and made up to the mark (10ml) with H2O.This procedure was repeated with the same amounts foe silymarin stock solution and silybum marianum extract. Taxifolin was transferred to 2ml brown bottle for HPLC auto sampler, this was also done to silymarin stock solution. Silybum marianum extract was filtered via a syringe filter (0.2 microlitre).The three samples were tested for concentrations of taxifolin via HPLC.This process was repeated a further 20 times with different amounts of taxifolin, silymarin stock solution and silybum marianum extract. Results of Taxifolin standard shown in table 1 and figure 1.

Results:
Table 1 Known Concentration of Taxifolin Standard
Concentration mg/ml| Taxifolin peak area|
0.0036| 1.876|
0.0072| 2.862|
0.0144| 4.518|
0.0576| 8.074|
0.0576| 15.273|
