Abstract: Astragalin and astragalosides were measured in Radix Astragali using reversed-phase chromatography coupled with pulsed amperometric detection. Because the target compounds showed poor stability in aqueous solutions, they were extracted in 100% methanol under reflux. All compounds were detected with high sensitivity under highly alkaline conditions using sodium hydroxide as a post-column eluent. The limits of detection and quantification of target compounds were 0.02-0.36 μg/mL and 0.06-1.09 μg/mL, respectively…
