Abstract: Frangula emodin, (1,3,8-trihydroxy-6-methyl-anthraquinone), is one of the anthraquinone derivatives found abundantly in the roots and bark of a number of plant families traditionally used to treat constipation and haemorrhoids. The present study describes the development and subsequent validation of a specific Assay HPLC method for emodin. The separation was achieved on a Waters Symmetry C18, 4.6 × 250 mm, 5 μm particle size, column at a temperature of 35 °C, with UV detection at 287 and 436 nm. An isocratic elution mode consisting of 0.1% formic acid and 0.01% trifluoroacetic acid as the aqueous mobile phase, and methanol was used. The method was successfully and statistically validated for linearity, range, precision, accuracy, specificity and solution stability.
