How to extract aloe-emodin?

Put aloe dry powder (10g) in a 500mL round bottom flask, add 4M HCl (150mL), react at 110°C for 30 minutes, then suction filter while hot, and wash the filter residue with deionized water, combine the filtrate, and re-set the volume to 300mL, heated to boiling. Add FeCl (325g) into deionized water (15mL) to dissolve the solution and slowly add the solution to the above reaction solution. After the reaction is continued for 8 hours, it is filtered while hot and washed with deionized water to obtain a crude product. Toluene (400mL) was added to the crude product, connected to a Soxhlet extractor, and the reaction was continued at 140°C for 8h. After the reaction is over, filter it while it is hot, cool it to room temperature, and put it in the refrigerator to recrystallize. After filtering and drying, the pure aloe-emodin product is obtained.
