Quantification of 3α-Acetyl-11-Keto-β-Boswellic Acid and 11-Keto-β-Boswellic Acid in the Resin of Boswellia species by HPTLC

Sisay Awoke*

In this article, the amount of the most potent anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer compounds found in the resin of B. papyrifera was quantified and compared with the well-known species, B. serrata and B. sacra (Synonyms B. carteri), using CAMAG HPTLC scanner IV equipped with a sample applicator Limonat V at wavelength 254 nm without derivation. The two most active ingredients, 11-keto--boswellic acid and 3-acetyl-11-keto-boswellic acid, in the EtOH extract of B. papyrifera resin were determined as 14.0% and 8%, respectively.
