Marchyshyn Svitlana, Kudrja Victoria and Zarichanska Olena
The roots and herb of Sanguisorba officinalis, traditionally used in medicine as styptic, mild astringent and anti-inflammatory remedy, have been studied for phenolic compounds’ qualitative composition and quantitative content by HPLC method. Flavonoids, hydroxycinnamic acids, polyphenols’ components and coumarins have been analyzed. Rutin, quercetin-3-D-glucoside, hyperoside, apigenin, umbelliferone, scopoletin, chlorogenic acid, rosmarinic acid, caffeic acid, ferulic acid, gallic acid, gallocatechin, epigallocatechin, epicatechin, catechin gallate, epicatechin gallate, ellagic acid have been determined in Sanguisorba officinalis herb. In the herb rutin (0.66 %) predominated among flavonoids, chlorogenic acid (0.59 %) – among hydroxycinnamic acids and epigallocatechin (2.63 %) – among constituents of polyphenols. Apigenin, coumarin, umbelliferone, rosmarinic and p-coumaric acids, gallocatechin, epigallocatechin, epicatechin, catechin gallate and epicatechin gallate have been determined in roots of the investigated plant. Content of coumarin in Sanguisorba officinalisroots was 0.95 %. Roots of Sanguisorba officinalis are characterized by significant content of catechins (gallocatechin, epicatechin, epigallocatechin, catechin gallate, epicatechingallate with the predomination of epigallocatechin (0.9 %)). Roots of the plant contain less flavonoids and hydroxycinnamic acids compared to herb.
