A double-development TLC method has been developed for simultaneous qualitative and quantitative analysis of hydrophilic and lipophilic constituents of Salvia miltiorrhiza (Danshen). The optimized mobile phases dichloromethane-ethyl acetate-formic acid 22:24:10 (ν/ν) and petroleum ether-ethyl acetate-cyclohexane 25:11:14 (ν/ν) were used for the double development on nano-silica gel 60F254 plates. Their characteristic TLC profiles were observed under UV light at 254 and 365 nm and the bands were then revealed by reaction with 5% H2SO4 in EtOH. Quantification of twelve compounds was achieved by densitometry at 260 or 290 nm, with reference at 400 nm. Linearity was quite good (R 2 > 0.99) within the ranges tested. This method could be used for quality control of Danshen.
