A micellar electrochromatographic method was performed for the analysis of the pharmaceutically important anthraquinones from the root of Rumex crispus. The separation of 1,5-dihydroxy-3-methylanthraquinone (1); 1, 3,5-trihydroxy-6-hydroxymethylanthraquinone (2); 1,5-dihydroxy-3-methoxy-7-methylanthraquinone (3) was achieved in 6 min using a running buffer containing 10 mmol/l sodium borate, 50 mmol/l sodium dodecylsulfate, and 25% acetonitrile at pH 10.6. The method is simple, rapid, and reproducible. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
