A rapid and simple RP-TLC method for simultaneous quantification of pharmacologically important sesquiterpene artemisinin (AM) together with its precursors arteannuin- B (AB) and artemisinic acid (AA) in the inflorescence part of Artemisia annua plant has been developed. The RP-TLC of sesquiterpenes was performed on RP-18 F254 S thin-layer chromatographic plates by developing in mobile phase, containing 0.2% TFA in water/ACN (35 : 65, v/v). The densitometric determination of AM, AB and AA was carried out after derivatization with anisaldehyde reagent at 426 nm in absorption-reflectance mode.
