The Layer and High Performance Liquid Chromatography of Ganoderma Species Author: Hung-Cheh Chiang, Pei-Lein Wang, Yueh-Shya Lii(Department of Chemistry College of Sciences )


"Ling chih" is a wild fungus, which since immemorial, has been regarded as a good omen and even an elixir among Chinese people. Generally, the word "Ling chih" embraces the species Ganoderma japonicum, Ganoderma tsugae, Ganoderma sessile and Ganoderma neo-japonicum. For botanical classification of G.japonicum, G.tsugae, G.sessile, G.neo-japonicum, G.applanturn and Formes pinicola. Thin layer and high performance liquid chromatographic analyses were performed on the methanolic extracts of above Ganoderma species. From the result obtained we find that these methods could clearly distinguish among these species.
