Abstract: A comparative study on the amount of chrysophanol eluted from Cassia after ultrafine pulverization. The results showed that the extraction rate of chrysophanol was only 7.6% after dehydration of cassia seed under the same extraction time and conditions, and the ultrafine granules were obtained after different conditions. The extraction rate of cassia seed was increased to 69.7%, 57.1%, and 32.4%, respectively. Under the 5min water soaking, the total chrysophanol content in Cassia seed powder was equivalent to that of medicinal water decoction for 90min. Proper drying of the sample before pulverization can improve the total. The amount of chrysophanol dissolved.
Key words: ultrafine pulverization; cassia seed; chrysophanol

The application of ultrafine pulverization technology in the field of traditional Chinese medicine is a new technology that has emerged in recent years. After ultrafine pulverization, the Chinese medicinal materials have fine and uniform particle size, and the cell walls are mostly broken or even completely broken, so the specific surface area is increased, which is beneficial to the dissolution of the contents and facilitates the extraction of the active ingredients. Therefore, the use of ultra-fine pulverization technology to treat Chinese medicinal materials is an important aspect of the application of this technology in the field of traditional Chinese medicine, so the rational application of this technology has a more realistic research significance.
Cassia is a mature seed of the leguminous plant Cassia obtusifolia L. or small cassia C. tora L., which is a commonly used traditional Chinese medicine [1] . Cassia has the functions of dispelling wind and dissipating heat, clearing the liver and improving eyesight, and relaxing bowel movements. It is often used for the treatment of redness and swelling, blue-blindness, finch, and constipation. Modern studies have shown that cassia has a high content of zui, which is about 0.25% in the literature [2] , and the total strontium content is about 0.61% [3] ; it also contains vitamin A-like substances, mucus, protein, sitosterol, amino acids. And fat oil and other ingredients. In recent years, studies have shown that Cassia has a hypotensive effect [4] , in addition, Cassia has a hypotensive effect [5] and significantly improve the distribution of cholesterol in the body, which are conducive to the prevention of atherosclerosis [6] and other cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease. This paper intends to study the effect of ultrafine pulverized cassia seed on the dissolution of the quinone compound, rhubarb, in its fine powder.

4 discussion
4.1 Correlation between pulverization conditions and particle size From the table of Cassia pulverization conditions and particle size, it can be seen that: 1 The dryness or water content of the material has a direct influence on the pulverization fineness, that is, the lower the water content, the pulverization into fine Particles; 2 When the water content is the same, the longer the pulverization time, the finer the pulverized particle size, but when the pulverization reaches a certain time point, the pulverization time is prolonged, the influence on the particle size becomes small, suggesting that: when the cassia is pulverized, there is Zui good smashing condition determination problem.
4.2 Comparison of total rhubarb extraction rate of cassia seed before and after pulverization 1 It can be seen from Table 1 that the unextracted cassia seed has the same extraction condition, the longer the extraction time, the higher the extraction rate, and the cooking is carried out 3 times, each time 30 minutes. The extraction rate can reach 71.0%. 2 It can be seen from Table 3 that after ultrafine pulverization, the extension of extraction time has little effect on the extraction rate, suggesting that after ultrafine pulverization, the cell wall is broken, which contributes to the dissolution of total chrysophanol and accelerates the dissolution rate. When the extraction is 5 min, the concentration equilibrium can be reached or approached; in the experiment, it is also found that the viscosity of the solution increases with the extension of the extraction time. Comparison of the two: water decoction cassia seed (extraction 15min), the extraction rate of chrysophanol is only 7.6% (100% by Soxhlet extractor), and the extraction rate of each group of Cassia after superfine pulverization under different conditions respectively Increased to 69.7%,
57.1%, 32.4%; if the total chrysophanol content was compared, the total chrysophanol content of cassia seed micropowder (dried 4h, crushed 32min) was equivalent to the content of medicinal water boiling for 90min at 80 °C, 5min water soaking. 3 It can be seen from Table 3 that with the same extraction time, the finer the particle size, the higher the elution amount, such as pulverization for 25 min, extraction for 5 min, undissolved dissolution of 0.42, drying for 1 h is 1.60, and drying for 4 h is 1.73. . However, from the sample group which prolonged the pulverization time and increased the fineness, the smaller the fineness, the lower the amount of dissolution, especially in the 40min group, the dissolution decreased significantly; while the undried group had little effect on the particle size due to the prolonged pulverization time. Therefore, the reduction of the amount of dissolution is not obvious, suggesting that the prolongation of the pulverization time has a certain influence on the total rhubarb phenol component, indicating that from the dissolution and retention of the active ingredient, there is also a problem of determining the smashing condition of the zui. It can be seen that when the ultrafine pulverization technology is applied to the pulverization of traditional Chinese medicine, there are certain scientific problems such as application rules and application conditions, which is not a simple smashing process and should be paid enough attention.
In this experiment, the cassia seed was smashed and peeled, and its total chrysophanol content increased by nearly 74%, suggesting that terpenoids are mainly present in fruits, and the content in the skin is small; free chrysophanol only accounts for 1.47 of total chrysophanol content. %. In addition, research on the stability of anthraquinones in Cassia and its related pharmacodynamic studies after superfine pulverization are underway.
