|Scilliroside is a cardioactive glycoside from red squill (Urginea maritima) used as rodenticide by ancient Egyptians and Roman. Only few reports were found concerning methods for analysis of the sclilliroside. We describe here a detection method for scilliroside using a solid phase extraction technique and reverse phase HPLC with diode array detector.
