Metabolome Studies of Herbal Medicine Using High Performance Liquid Chromatography Ion-Mobility Mass Spectrometry

In Chinese herbal medicine (CHM), traditionally, Hedyotis diffusa and Scutellaria barbata are cooked together and given to patients as tea. It is hypothesized that the interaction of metabolites from both herbs during cooking, improves the medical effect. This hypothesis was tested by preparing two tea variants which were then analyzed using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) coupled to ion-mobility mass spectrometry (IM-MS).
