In this study our goal was to investigate the phenolic content of Pimpinella saxifraga L. herb. A high-performance liquid chromatographic method has been used for the estimation of tannins and flavonoids in burnet herb, collected from West region in Ukraine. Four flavonoids (rutin, hyperoside, luteolin and quercetin-3-D-glucoside), gallic and ellagic acids were identified and quantified in the analyzed object. The experimental results showed high amount of rutin (0.44%), luteolin (0.28%) and 0.07% and 0.03% for gallic and ellagic acids respectively. The results obtained from the present study, point out that the P. saxifraga L. is a potential source of natural free radical scavengers.
