Pentea M, Butu M, Samfira I, Cristina RT, Butnariu M. . EXTRACTION AND ANALYTICAL STUDY OF SALVINORIN A FROM LEAVES OF SALVIA DIVINORUM. Digest Journal of Nanomaterials and Biostructures , 10(1), pp. 291-297., 2015.

Abstract: Brain-imaging studies in animals provided evidence that salvinorin A biostructure, in addition to hallucinations and impairment of motor function in humans, could become a
popular drug. Salvia divinorum samples were analyzed by gas chromatography, after being dried at 40C. For extraction was used analytical grade purity acetone and recrystallisation
was achieved with methanol of chromatographic purity. Preliminary processing of crude extract allowed enriching the final solution composition in salvinorin A. The large number of signals showed that under ionization an advanced fragmentation of the molecule occurred. By the advanced fragmentation of S. divinorum it was obtained a sample image, with the mass spectrometer, which may constitute a specific footprint of the component salvinorin A.

Keywords: Salvia divinorum, Salvinorin A, Extraction, Analytical study
