Abstract: A liquid chromatographic method was developed for the separation of six related triterpenoid saponins in Maesa balansae extracts with different purity, active against leishmaniasis. As stationary phase a Hypersil BDS C18 column (3 microm), 100 x 4.6 mm was used. The mobile phase was a mixture of methanol, acetonitrile, 5% (m/v) ammonium acetate, pH 6.5 and water. A linear gradient was developed for the analysis of crude extracts. An isocratic method was developed to analyze purified samples that mainly contained saponins 3 and 4, the most active saponins. The isocratic LC method was optimized and the robustness was evaluated with an experimental design. The method showed good selectivity, repeatability, linearity and sensitivity.
