Dissolve chlorogenic acid CRS in methanol to produce a solution containing 1mg per ml as the reference solution. Carry out the method of thin layer chromatography (Appendix Vl B), using silica gel H containing sodium carboxymethylcellulose as coating substance and the upper layer of butylacetate-formic acid-water (7:2:5:2.5) as the mobile phase. Apply separately to the plate 10-20µl of the test solution and 10µl of the reference solution. After developing and removal of plate, dry it in the air and examine under ultra violet light (365nm). The fluorescent spot in the chromatogram obtained with the test solution corresponds in the position and color to the fluorescent spot obtained with the reference solution.
