Abstract

Techniques of infrared (IR) spectrophotometry, High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) and HPLC-mass spectrometry are employed in this study to reveal the changes of the components in Semen sinapis Albae during the Chinese traditional processing. While the degradation of proteins and polysaccarides can be observed, sinapine in this drug can be known to decompose immediately after 15 mins during processing. A new substance, which is produced, has been studied and identified as p-hydroxybenzoic acid.
