Evaluation of catechin, lupeol, and betulinic acid as markers for the chromatographic quality Control of Albizia coriaria raw materials; an experimental study

Albizia coriaria stembark is among the most common raw materials used to manufacture herbal products in Uganda. While the plant material is sourced from the wild, there are neither monographs nor chemical analytical methods for its standardisation. In addition, good cultivation, harvesting, and manufacturing practices are not mandatory. This leads to inconsistent quality of raw materials and products. This work...
