Heterophylla "Chinese Pharmacopoeia" collection contains commonly used traditional Chinese medicine, Jiangsu has always been the main producing areas for heterophylla, the traditional understanding of medicinal products in Jiangsu
Province are considered the best quality real estate Taizishen that there was "genuine medicine," said. The past 20 years, the wild resources dwindling, the original herbal medicine market demand has increased year by year, Anhui, Fujian and
Guizhou and other places have also started large-scale
cultivation heterophylla, with the cultivated area expanded heterophylla, circulation strain increased, medicines internal quality control and the development of genuine medicines production has become a priority. Heavy metal is the
recognized harmful trace elements, heavy metals in traditional Chinese medicine in traditional Chinese medicine issue is to ensure "safe, effective, and controllable," one of the most important issue. Heterophylla medicinal herbs in order to
evaluate the quality of comprehensive development of genuine medicines and to ensure the safety of clinical use of drugs provide the scientific basis of this experiment by inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometry and microwave
digestion - atomic fluorescence spectrometry of different origin Taizishen lead, chromium and arsenic, mercury, cadmium was detected, are reported below.

the RSD to 2.3%, 1.8%, 2.7% (n = 6), for the test materials in 3 h to stabilize.
The results of arsenic, the average recovery rate of 95.23%, RSD 1.45%; cadmium average recovery was 102.34%, RSD 2.57%; mercury, the average recovery was 103.55%, RSD of
2.2.4 Sample measurement [1,2] sample preparation: Take the sample powder 0.5 g (over 80 mesh sieve), precision, said fixed, Chi Yung-like cup, with a small amount of deionized water, wet powder, add 10 ml nitric acid, placed heating plate
at 130 ? to make the acid Hui, then add 1 ml perchloric acid (preparation of arsenic, cadmium sample solution), or 4 ml nitric acid and 1 ml perchloric acid (preparation of liquid mercury in the sample), into the microwave digestion
instrument, the By design, the digestion process (Table 2) digestion, after digestion to be removed after the pressure drop, put into a heated board to make the remaining 150 ? Hui
acid, cooling, digestion solution as Arsenic, cadmium, mercury and the sample liquid.
Table 2 digestion process design (a little)
Sample Measurement: To determine the arsenic, the arsenic in the sample fluid transferred to the pre-accession to 5 ml
50 mg / ml thiourea - the mixture of ascorbic acid in 50 ml
flask to 10% HCl constant volume to the scale, determined
after shaking. Determination of cadmium, cadmium sample solution will be transferred to the pre-accession to 100 μg /
ml of cobalt solution 1 ml, 10% thiourea in 10 ml in 50 ml flask, with 2% HC1 constant volume to the scale, determined after shaking. Determination of mercury, will be transferred to the liquid mercury in the sample in 25 ml flask with 0.5 g / L potassium dichromate constant volume of 5% nitric acid to the scale, determined after shaking. The results in Table 1.
Heavy metals, arsenic, mercury, lead, cadmium and others are harmful trace elements, when its accumulation in the body to a certain amount of time can cause the immune system disorder and a variety of function impairment, present, China has developed only a part of traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese medicine formulations lead , arsenic, mercury limit standard of heavy metals in this experiment detected heterophylla, both for the quality evaluation of medicinal
herbs provide a basis for development of the standard limits of heavy metals in medicinal herbs provide a reference.
Based on "import and export of medicinal plants and preparation of green industry standard" (2001) Indicators of
heavy metals limits (mg / kg): Lead (Pb) ? 5.0, cadmium (Cd)
? 0.3, mercury (Hg) ? 0.2, As ( As) ? 2.0. In addition to
chromium (Cr)-free standards, Taizishen of heavy metals were up to standard.
Preliminary test results show that different production
areas Taizishen content of heavy metals have certain differences, Fujian, Guizhou and samples of lead and arsenic content is relatively high, Jiangsu, relatively low levels of arsenic in the sample. With the corresponding results of the analysis of soil origin (another paper), Taizishen of heavy metals in herbal medicine is far lower than the soil samples, indicating Taizishen of arsenic, mercury, lead, cadmium, chromium did not enrichment.
