Abstract An HPLC method was developed for the quantitative determination of five pregnane derivatives from aerial parts of Caralluma species and dietary supplements. The method was validated for linearity, repeatability, LOD, and LOQ. The LOD and LOQ of five pregnane compounds were found to be in the range of 1-5 and 3-15 microg/mL, respectively, by HPLC using photodiode array detection. This method was applied to the identification of three plant materials of Caralluma species (C. fimbriata, C. umbellate, and C. attentuata) and seven dietary supplements claiming to contain C. fimbriata. An LCIMS coupled with electrospray ionization interface method was used for the identification of compounds and involved the use of [M+Na]+ ions in the positive ion mode with extracted ion chromatogram.
