- An off‐line two‐dimensional high‐speed counter‐current chromatography strategy combined with the wavelength switching technique and extrusion elution mode was successfully developed and applied to the isolation of polar antioxidants from Abelmoschus esculentus (L).Moench. Target‐guided by the result of 2,2‐diphenyl‐1‐picrylhydrazyl screening assay, four antioxidants were obtained with purities over 90% through orthogonal high‐speed counter‐current chromatography separation. UV spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and ¹H NMR spectroscopy were employed to identify their structures, which were assigned as l‐tryptophan, quercetin‐3‐O‐sophoroside, 5,7,3′,4′‐tetrahydroxyflavonol‐3‐O‐[β‐d‐rhamnopyranosil‐(1→2)]‐β‐d‐glucopyranoside, and quercetin‐3‐O‐glucoside. Each monomer exhibited significant antioxidant activity. The results demonstrated that proposed method could be an effective approach to isolate bioactive compounds from complex natural products.
