Phytochemical Composition of Arnicae flos from Wild Populations in the Northern Area of the Romanian Eastern Carpathians

; ; ; ; ; (). Phytochemical Composition of Arnicae flos from Wild Populations in the Northern Area of the Romanian Eastern Carpathians. REVISTA DE CHIMIE (Bucharest), 66, 5. 784-787.

The aim of our ongoing study is to assess the quality of the autochthonous plant material of Arnica montana L. species from the northern area of the Romanian Eastern Carpathians. This is the first report for the phytochemical features for the wild populations in this area. The first qualitative assessments were performed by means of High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC). The High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) analysis highlighted a total content in sesquiterpene-lactones of 0.86-1.36%, while
the total content in flavonoids and phenolic acids was 1.08-1.50%, 0.86-1.27% respectively.
