Abstract: Tea polysaccharides are mainly composed of about 20 kinds of common amino acids in the protein part, the sugar part is mainly composed of arabinose, xylose, fucose, glucose, galactose, etc. The mineral elements are mainly calcium, magnesium, iron and manganese And a small amount of trace elements, such as rare earth elements.

Objective To extract the water-soluble crude polysaccharide from willow tea for the first time and to separate, purify and analyze its composition. Methods Willow tea was extracted by hot water, ethanol precipitation, deproteinized by Sevag method, decolorized by H2O2, and dialyzed against countercurrent water to obtain polysaccharide refined products. After derivatizing refined polysaccharides, their chemical components were analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The results determined that the water-soluble polysaccharides in willow tea were composed of ribose, mannose, glucose and galactose, among which ribose, glucosose and galactose were the main components. Conclusion This method is simple, sensitive, and can accurately determine various monosaccharides contained in polysaccharides from willow tea.

Willow tea is a commonly used folk medicine of Tibetans. It is based on the branches and leaves of the Rosaceae (Sibiraea) plant Sibeiraeaangustata (Rehd.) Hand-Mazz. And the Sibeiraealaecigata (L) Maxim. The fruit branches of the fruit) are used in medicine, mainly for digestion, stasis, and evacuation of wind and heat; according to the Tibetan medicine literature, willow tea mainly treats fever and epidemic diseases [1]. Now Tibetan folks often make tea to treat indigestion caused by many reasons such as bloating after eating, and it often works. In addition to volatile oil and trace elements, willow tea also found rich polysaccharides through experiments. Polysaccharides have been accepted by many people as health products to improve the body's immune function. However, many polysaccharide products only stay in the health products stage and have not been developed into drugs. Therefore, this article aims to study the extraction, purification, and component analysis of willow tea polysaccharides and discuss their nutritional and health care functions, in order to provide a reference for the development and comprehensive utilization of willow tea.

4 Discussion

To analyze the composition of monosaccharides in polysaccharides, the primary task is to thoroughly hydrolyze the polysaccharide samples. Because if the hydrolysis effect is not ideal, it is difficult for the polysaccharide to be completely hydrolyzed to monosaccharides or only a small amount of hydrolysis, resulting in a small peak of the hydrolyzed derivatized product in the gas chromatographic analysis, which affects the determination of monosaccharides with less polysaccharide content. Through comprehensive investigation and analysis of various factors that affect the hydrolysis effect, it is concluded that for the hydrolysis of willow tea polysaccharides, 2ml2mo1 / L TFA should be used to hydrolyze for 6h. Under this hydrolysis condition, the polysaccharide can be hydrolyzed relatively completely. Sulfuric acid can also be used for the hydrolysis of polysaccharides, but the effect of using low-concentration sulfuric acid for hydrolysis is not ideal, and high-concentration sulfuric acid can easily cause carbonization of polysaccharides. And because the boiling point of sulfuric acid is relatively high, the remaining acid after hydrolysis is not easy to be volatile and removed, and it must be neutralized with barium carbonate, which is easy to cause the loss of sample components.

When the tea polysaccharide is extracted or dried in the air, the color will deepen. It can be decolorized with hydrogen peroxide or activated carbon. The amount of activated carbon used for decolorization is large, and the sample loss is large. Therefore, H2O2 is used for decolorization. After decolorizing with hydrogen peroxide, it must be dialyzed until no hydrogen peroxide is detected. H2O2 is detected by potassium permanganate method. In addition, covering the sample with a thin film during alcohol washing, ether washing, and suction filtration can reduce air contact and prevent darkening of the color. During decolorization, the temperature is kept at 50 ℃ for 2h. The short time is too much pigment to affect the detection result, and the longer the time, there is no better decolorization effect.

In addition to various chemical components such as volatile oil, trace elements, triterpenoids, etc., the tea group found that the polysaccharides contained in it are also one of its main active ingredients; the application of polysaccharides as medicines was in the 1940s and since the 20th century Since the 1960s, people have discovered that polysaccharides have more biological activities. It not only has immunoregulatory functions, but also can resist infection, lower blood sugar and anti-tumor. With the deepening of research on polysaccharide compounds, it has shown broad application prospects in the clinical treatment of anti-tumor and viruses. This paper is the first to study the chemical composition of willow tea polysaccharides, which has certain significance for the development and utilization of local resources. Further study of its chemical structure will help elucidate the relationship between its activity and its composition.
