“High Performance Liquid Chromatographic Quantification of Salvinorin A from Tissues of Salvia divinorum Epling & JŠtiva-M”. 
Phytochemical Analysis. 1998 Nov 07;9:1-4.
A reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatographic method for the determination of salvinorin A, a psychotropic diterpene isolated from the Mexican sage Salvia divinorum, has been developed. Extracts from several plant collections were examined on a C-18 column with UV detection and isocratic eiution with acetonitrile: water (45:55). This assay allowed quantification of salvinorin A in extracts of leaves and steins of 5. divinorum and has also been applied to the screening of related species for the production of salvinorin A Levels of salvinorin A in leaves range from 0.89 to 3.70 mg/g dry weight. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd
