Objectives Rehmanniae Radix Preparata was prepared in the traditional Rehmanniae Radix Preparata preparation method set forth in the 『Treasured Mirror of Eastern Medicine(Donguibogam)』 with a view to measuring the contents of 5-Hydroxymethyl-2-furaldehyde(5-HMF) at individual stages of steaming and sundrying and identifying new chemical components.Methods Based on the traditional Rehmanniae Radix Preparata preparation method set forth in the 『Treasured Mirror of Eastern Medicine』, Rehmanniae Radix Preparata steamed and sundried once through nine times was prepared. Thereafter, 5-HMF contents were analyzed and new chemical components were identified in the Rehmanniae Radix Preparata using Waters HPLC e2695, 2640 detectors, a Waters Acquity UPLC system, and a Micromass Q-TOF Premier mass spectrometer.Results The Rehmanniae Radix Preparata preparation method set forth in the 『Treasured Mirror of Eastern Medicine』 is a unique preparation method in Republic of Korea different from that in China. In the first stage of the method, fresh Rehmanniae Radix Crudus was divided into high quality, medium quality, and low quality ones named Rehmanniae Radix Crudus (Caelum)(天黃), Rehmanniae Radix Crudus (Homo)(人黃), and Rehmanniae Radix Crudus (Terra)(地黃) respectively to use Rehmanniae Radix Crudus (Caelum) and Rehmanniae Radix Crudus (Homo) for preparation of juice while using Rehmanniae Radix Crudus (Terra) to make Rehmanniae Radix Preparata. In the second stage, Rehmanniae Radix Crudus (Caelum) and Rehmanniae Radix Crudus (Terra) were made into juice and Rehmanniae Radix Crudus (Terra) was soaked in the juice. In the third stage, among auxiliary materials, rice wine named Purum Vinum Oryzae(淸酒) brewed from sticky rice was sprinkled on Rehmanniae Radix Crudus (Terra) to the extent that Rehmanniae Radix Crudus (Terra) became wet. In the fourth stage, Rehmanniae Radix Preparata steamed in earthenware steamer was dried under natural sunlight. The contents of 5-HMF in Rehmanniae Radix Preparata steamed and sundried once through nine times were shown to be below 0.1% in all cases. Pomolic acid was identified as a new chemical component.Conclusions In conclusion, the Rehmanniae Radix Preparata preparation method set forth in the 『Treasured Mirror of Eastern Medicine』 is thought to be a unique preparation method in South Korea in which Rehmanniae Radix Preparata is completed through the first stage in which fresh Rehmanniae Radix Crudus collected from fields is divided into high, medium, and low quality ones and fresh Rehmanniae Radix Crudus juice is made, the second stage in which the high quality fresh Rehmanniae Radix Crudus is soaked in the fresh Rehmanniae Radix Crudus juice, the third stage in which the fresh Rehmanniae Radix Crudus is steamed, and the fourth stage in which the steamed Rehmanniae Radix Crudus is dried.
