Content of isoflavones
Diluting solution Prepare a mixture of acetonitrile and water(4:6).
Internal standard solution Quantitatively dissolve an accurately weighed quantity of USP Apigenin RS in dimethyl sulfoxide to obtain a solution having a concentration of about 2.0 mg per mL. [NoteThe solution is stable for 6 months when stored in a tightly closed, light-resistant glass container at room temperature.]
Solution A Prepare filtered and degassed water containing 0.05% phosphoric acid.
Solution B Use filtered and degassed acetonitrile.
Mobile phase Use variable mixtures of Solution A and Solution B as directed for Chromatographic system. Make adjustments if necessary (see System Suitability under Chromatography 621).
Standard stock solution Dissolve accurately weighed quantities of USP Daidzin RS, USP Glycitin RS, USP Genistin RS, USP Daidzein RS, USP Glycitein RS, and USP Genistein RS in dimethyl sulfoxide to obtain a solution having known concentrations of about 2.0, 0.5, 2.0, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2 mg per mL, respectively. [NoteThe solution is stable for 2 months when stored in a tightly closed, light-resistant glass container at room temperature.].
Working standard solutions Transfer 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, and 2.5 mL of the Standard stock solution to separate 25-mL volumetric flasks, add 0.5 mL of the Internal standard solution to each flask, and dilute quantitatively with Diluting solution to obtain Working standard solutions 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, having known concentrations of the six USP Reference Standards as listed in the table. [NoteThe solutions are stable for 2 months when stored in tightly closed, light-resistant glass containers at room temperature.]
Test solution Transfer an accurately weighed quantity of Powdered Soy Isoflavones Extract, equivalent to not more than 5 mg of isoflavones, to a 30-mL glass centrifuge tube, fitted with a PTFE or polyethylene-lined screw cap. Add the following in exact volumes: 0.5 mL of Internal standard solution, 10 mL of acetonitrile (swirl to disperse), and 6.0 mL of water. Cap, shake on an orbital or wrist-action shaker for 60 minutes, add 8.5 mL of water, mix, and centrifuge. Pass a portion of the supernatant through a hydrophilic propylene or a PVDF membrane having a 0.45-µm or finer porosity, discarding the first 5 mL of the filtrate. [NotesDo not use nylon filters. Analyze samples containing significant amounts of acetyl and/or malonyl isoflavones within 4 hours of preparation.]
Malonyl/acetyl isoflavones retention times check solutions Heat a 1-g portion of USP Defatted Powdered Soy RS in a shallow porcelain dish at 120 for 120 minutes. Transfer another 1-g portion of USP Defatted Powdered Soy RS and the heated portion to two separate 30-mL glass centrifuge tubes, fitted with PTFE or polyethylene-lined screw caps. Proceed as directed for Test solution, starting with Add the following in exact volumes: 0.5 mL of Internal standard solution,.
Chromatographic system (see Chromatography 621) The liquid chromatograph is equipped with a 260-nm detector and a 3.0-mm × 25-cm column that contains 5-µm packing L1. The flow rate is about 0.65 mL per minute. The column temperature is maintained at 40. The chromatograph is programmed as follows.
Procedure Separately inject equal volumes (about 5 µL) of the Working standard solutions, the two Malonyl/acetyl Isoflavones retention times check solutions, and the Test solution into the chromatograph; record the chromatograms; and identify the peaks of daidzin, glycitin, genistin, daidzein, glycitein, and genistein in the chromatograms of the Working standard solutions by comparison with the Reference Standard Chromatogram. Measure the peak areas of the analytes and the internal standard. Determine the ratio of the peak areas of each analyte to the internal standard peak area. Plot the ratios of the relevant peak responses versus the concentrations, in mg per mL, of each analyte obtained from the Working standard solutions, and determine the regression line by least-squares analysis. The correlation coefficient for each of the regression lines is not less than 0.999. From the graphs so obtained, determine the concentration, C, in mg per mL, of the relevant analyte in the Test solution. Separately calculate the percentages of daidzin, glycitin, and genistin, and of daidzein, glycitein, and genistein, if present, in the portion of Powdered Soy Isoflavones Extract taken by the formula:
2500(C/W)in which C is as obtained above; and W is the weight, in mg, of Powdered Soy Isoflavones Extract taken to prepare the Test solution. Identify the peaks of malonyl daidzin, malonyl glycitin, acetyl daidzin, acetyl glycitin, malonyl genistin, and acetyl genistin in the chromatograms of the Malonyl/acetyl isoflavones retention times check solutions by comparison with the Reference Chromatograms provided with USP Defatted Powdered Soy RS. From the graphs obtained for daidzin, glycitin, and genistin, determine the corresponding concentration, C, in mg per mL, of the malonyl and acetyl derivatives, if present, in the Test solution. Separately calculate the percentages of malonyl daidzin, acetyl daidzin, malonyl glycitin, acetyl glycitin, malonyl genistin, and acetyl genistin in the portion of Powdered Soy Isoflavones Extract taken by the formula:
2500F(C/W)in which F is the conversion factor for each analyte (1.207 for malonyl daidzin, 1.101 for acetyl daidzin, 1.193 for malonyl glycitin, 1.094 for acetyl glycitin, 1.199 for malonyl genistin, and 1.097 for acetyl genistin); C is as obtained above; and W is the weight, in mg, of Powdered Soy Isoflavones Extract taken to prepare the Test solution. Calculate the content, in percentage, of isoflavones in the portion of the Powdered Soy Isoflavones Extract taken by adding the percentages calculated for all analytes present.
