Plants of the Hedychium genus are perennial rhizomatus plants belonging to the Zingiberaceae family. Extracts of Zingiberacaea have long been used in traditional medicine. A simple, precise, and convenient HPTLC method has been established for analysis of hedychenone, the major marker compound extracted from the rhizomes of Hedychium spicatum (Buch-Hem). Chromatography was performed on silica gel 60F 254 plates with ethyl acetate-hexane, 20 + 80 ( v/v ), as mobile phase. Detection and quantification were performed densitometrically at λ max = 254 nm with hedychenone as external standard. The method is characterized by high sensitivity and linearity over a wide range of concentrations.
