Quinic Acid Analysis Service

Quinic Acid Analysis Service

Quinic acid is a  kind of cyclitol, a cyclic polyol, and a cyclohexanecarboxylic acid and is  soluble in water and crystallizes in large colorless prisms. Quinic acid is also known as a  crystalline acid obtained from cinchona bark, coffee beans, and other plant  products and made synthetically by hydrolysis of chlorogenic acid. The chemical  compound was isolated by Nicolas Vauquelin, which is a French pharmacist in  1806 for the first time. The further chemical reactions to synthesize other  compounds by using this acid as substance were investigated by German chemist  Eduard Lautemann in 1863. Quinic acid can be found in the bark of Eucalyptus globulus.

Scientists at Creative Proteomics utilize a highly quantitative method with  high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)  for the determination of Quinic Acid levels in various samples, including Plant  and more. High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) using a differential refractive index detector (RID) for the  determination of Quinic acid levels in a lot of biological samples. This  Methodology provides accurate, reliable, and reproducible results of Quinic  acid measurement, which enables us to analyze of Quinic acid levels in vitro  and in vivo.

The common industrial application of Quinic acid is used as an astringent. Quinic acid is a versatile chiral  starting material to synthesize many new pharmaceutical drugs. For example,  Tamiflu, which is a medication for the treatment of influenza A and B strains  is synthesized with Quinic acid as  raw material and has been successfully developed and launched into the market. Quinic acid is also reported can be  used to displace the muopioid receptor antagonist Naltrexone, even though Quinic acid was originally thought to  be pharmacologically inactive.

The Russian-Polish botanist M. Tswett is  generally recognized as the first person to establish the principles of  chromatography. In a paper he presented in 1906, Tswett described how he filled  a glass tube with chalk powder (CaCO3) and, by allowing an ether solution of  chlorophyll to flow through the chalk, separated the chlorophyll into layers of  different colors. He called this technique “chromatography”. Fundamentally,  chromatography is a technique used to separate the components contained in a  sample. High Performance Liquid Chromatography  (HPLC) is a method able to separate non-volatile, thermally unstable, and  polar components separate or in a mixture. HPLC is a type of chromatography that, because of its wide application range and  quantitative accuracy, is regarded as an indispensable analytical technique,  particularly in the field of organic chemistry. It is also widely used as a  preparation technique for the isolation and purification of target components  contained in mixtures.
