Abstract

A capillary electrophoretic method, which allowed the detection and separation of the active principlesof Catha edulis, i.e. cathinone, cathine and phenylpropanolamine, was developed. A suitable internalstandard (nicotinamide), which permitted the quantification of the analytes reducing the variability ofthe migration times due to EOF changes, was identified. The analytical method was validated, assessinglinearity, sensitivity and repeatability, showing optimal features for the analysis of the vegetablematerial. Moreover extraction conditions were investigated to achieve the exhaustion of the plantmaterial in the fastest and most efficient way to meet the requirements of the Court.
