The aim of this study was to evaluate the chromatographic performance of a poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) stationary phase for the HPLC analysis of the secondary metabolites (chlorogenic acid, flavonoids, phloroglucinols and naphthodianthrones) in methanolic extracts of Hypericum perforatum L. (St. John's Wort) flowering tops, herbal medicinal products and dietary supplements. A fast and reliable method was developed. The analyses were carried out on a Supelco Discovery HS PEG column (150 mm × 4.6 mm i.d., 5 μm). A gradient mobile phase, composed of 0.1 M aqueous acetic acid solution (pH 2.8) and methanol–acetonitrile (5:4, v/v), was used. The flow rate was 1 mL/min. The photodiode array detector monitored the eluent at 270 (for chlorogenic acid, flavonoids and phloroglucinols) and 590 nm (for naphthodianthrones). The column was maintained at room temperature. The total running time was 40 min. The method was validated and showed good linearity, precision, accuracy, sensitivity and specificity. Through the above described phytochemical markers, this technique allowed the unequivocal identification and standardization of H. perforatum plant material and phytoproducts. The quantification data highlighted the fact that the products on sale, in particular those labeled as dietary supplements, varied widely in the quantitative composition of the active constituents. The developed method could be considered suitable for the quality control of H. perforatum herb and derivatives.
