The viscosity of the solution in the first tube should be significantly lower than that in the second tube.
  3. Take 10 ml of the solution of step 1, dilute it to 50 ml with water, shake well, and then, take 10 ml, add 2 ml of polyethylene glycol 600, and a white precipitate is produced immediately.


take the product, using vacuum drying method at 105 °C for 2.5 hours. Accurately weigh 10.0g, add water to dissolve the product and dilute the solution to 100g. According to the rule (Chinese Pharmacopoeia 2015 General Rules 0633 first method), at 30 ± 1 ° C (the capillary inner diameter of 2.0 mm), the kinematic viscosity should be 50-180 mm2 /s.


take 1.0g of this product, add 10mL of distilled water cooled after boiling 10mL for dissolution. The PH value should be 4.5~6.5 at 25 °C.

Monosaccharides and oligosaccharides

test based on UV-visible spectrophotometry


Take the product, vacuum drying at 90 °C for 6 hours. Accurately weigh 0.80 g, add water for dissolution and dilute it to 100 ml, then comes out the stock solution. Precisely measure 1 ml of stock solution, add 0.1 ml of saturated potassium chloride solution and 3 ml of methanol, then mix them up, and centrifuge. Take the liquid supernatant as a test solution for monosaccharides and oligosaccharides. In addition, accurately take 1 ml of the stock solution, r and diluted it to 50 ml with water, then come out a total sugar solution. Separately measure 0.2 ml of the monosaccharide and oligosaccharide test solution, total sugar solution and water. slowly add them to 5ml of 75% sulfuric acid aqueous solution which is cooled with cold water and containing 0.2% fluorenone, mix immediately, and put the solution in a water bath of 90°C for 10 minutes, then immediately cool the temperature of the solution down to room temperature, and shake well. Measure the absorbances At, As, Aw at a wavelength of 620 nm. Calculate the content of monosaccharides and oligosaccharides according to the following formula, and it should not exceed 10.0%.

Content% = (At-Aw) / (As-Aw) * 8.2

In the formula

At = the absorbance of the test solution of monosaccharides and oligosaccharides

As = the absorbance of the total sugar solution

Aw = the absorbance of water


Standard solution: weigh 0.2g of glucose, accurate to 0.001g. add water for dissolution and dilute it to 1 L. take 0.2ml of the solution and add it to 5ml of anthrone solution, mix well.

Blank solution: add 0.2 ml of water to 5 ml of anthrone solution, and mix well.

Sample stock solution: weigh 0.8g sample, accurate to 0.001g, add water for dissolution and dilute it to 100ml.

Sample solution: Measure 1 ml of the sample stock solution, place it in a centrifuge tube, add 0.1 ml of saturated potassium chloride solution and 3 ml of methanol, vigorously mix for 20S, and centrifuge at a speed of 11000r/min for 10min. Take 0.2 ml centrifuged liquid supernatant and add it to 5 ml of an anthrone solution, and mix them well.

Take the sample solution, the standard solution and the blank solution, and keep them warm in a 90 ° C water bath for 15 min. Use a spectrophotometer to test absorbance of these solutions at 620 nm. The content of monosaccharides, disaccharides and oligosaccharides is calculated by the mass fraction of glucose W1, and the value is expressed in %. The content of monosaccharides, disaccharides and oligosaccharides should not exceed 10%, and is calculated according to the following formula:

Content % = ((At - Ab) * 0.41 * m1) / ((As - Ab) * m0)

In the formula

At = the absorbance of the sample solution

As = the absorbance of the standard solution

Ab = the absorbance of the blank solution

m1 = glucose quality

m0 = sample quality


take about 3g of the product, the amount of sulfuric acid used in digestion and decomposition is 12ml, and add 40ml of 40% sodium hydroxide solution, distill the solution, test the dried product according to nitrogen testing method, and the nitrogen content should be less than 0.05%.
