Garcinia mangostana L., hull part,is empirically used as a traditional medicinefor diarrhea, sprue and antipyretic. Its chemical constituents are xanthon compounds such asa-mangostin, 8-deoxygartanin, gartanin, mangostinone, tovophylin A and cudraxanthone. Eventhough a-mangostin is the major compound, however, there is little information for quality and quantity determination of α-mangostin in mangosteen. Thus, were the aims of this study. The other purpose was to set up a validated method (ICH Harmonized Tripartite Guideline, 2005) for quality control and quantity determination of a-mangostin from Garcinia mangostana L. using reverse-phase HPLC. The method was validated and showed to be linear (r= 0.999), accurate (mean 100.228%), precise (intra-day variation = 0.835%, inter-day variation = 0.635%), specific with good recovery (mean 100,228 %). Total analysis was nearly 5.4 min. The method is applicable for standardization and for routine quality control of α-mangostin in Garcinia mangostana L. hull extract and its products.
