A sensitive and simple liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometric (HPLC-MS/MS) method for the determination of corilagin in rat plasma has been developed. Samples were prepared with protein precipitation method and analyzed with a triple quadrupole tandem mass spectrometer. We employed negative electrospray ionization as the ionization source and the analytes were detected in multiple reaction monitoring mode. Separation was achieved on a C8 column eluted with mobile phase consisting of methanol-0.1% formic acid in a gradient mode at the flow rate of 0.3 mL/min. The total run time was 7.0 min.This method was proved to have good linearity in the concentration range of 2.5-1000.0 ng/mL. The lower limit of quantification of corilagin was 2.5 ng/mL. The intra- and inter-day relative standard deviationa across three validation runs for four concentration levels were both <9.8%. The relative error was within ±6.0%. This assay offers advantages in terms of expediency and suitability for the analysis of corilagin in rat plasma. The practical utility of this new HPLC-MS/MS method was confirmed in pilot plasma concentration studies in rats following oral administration.
