Abstract Two major development areas in HPLC-NMR hyphenation are postcolumn solid-phase extraction (HPLC-SPE-NMR) and capillary separations with NMR detection by means of solenoidal microcoils (CapNMR). These two techniques were combined off-line into HPLC-SPE-CapNMR, which combines the advantage of high loadability of normal-bore HPLC columns with high mass sensitivity of capillary NMR probes with an active volume of 1.5 mu L. The technique was used for rapid identification of complex sesquiterpene lactones and esterified phenylpropanoids present in an essentially crude plant extract ( toluene fraction of an ethanolic extract of Thapsia garganica fruits). Elution profiles of 10 x 1 mm i. d. SPE cartridges filled with poly( divinylbenzene) resin were found to be only marginally broader than those observed upon direct injection of 6-mu L samples into the probe. Thus, the technique focuses analytes emerging in the HPLC elution bands of 0.5-1 mL into volumes of similar to 10 mu L, compatible with the CapNMR probe. Using this technique, nine natural products (1-9) present in the plant extract in amounts varying from 0.1 to 20% were identified by means of 1D and 2D NMR spectra, supported by parallel HPLC-ESIMS measurements. Therefore, HPLC-SPE-CapNMR should be regarded as an attractive alternative to other applications of CapNMR for mixture analysis.
