||Asiaticoside isolated from Centella asiaticahas been found through in vitrotest to serve as an active
agent of healing on wounds. To quantify this compound in Centella asiaticacultivated in Benin, a new, simple
and rapid High-Performance Thin-Layer Chromatography(HPTLC) method was developed and validated for
its selectivity, its recovery, and its repeatability. Compounds have been separated on silica gel 60F
with ethyl acetate/methanol/water (100/25/10, v/v/v), as mobile phase. The detection was done by densitometry
scanning at λ= 600 nm and the calibration plots showed that thegraphical response was linear and dependent
on the quantity in the range of 2.50- 12.50 µg, wit h good values of R² = 0.998. This method is repeatable and
precise with relative standard deviations between1.42 and 5.92% for the intra-day tests and between 1.27 and
6.57% for the inter-day tests for the quantities belonging to an interval of 2.50 and 12.50 µg. The li mits of
detection and quantification were 0.317 and 1.05 µg respectively. The quantity of asiaticoside found was
0.24% in the alcoholic extract.
