INVESTIGATION OF HERBS COMPOSITION POLYGONUM PERSICARIA WITH THE METHOD OF GAS CHROMIC-MASS-SPECTROMETRY
The buckwheat family (Polygonaceae), quite widespread throughout the European part of Russia, includes a large number of closely related species, similar in their morphological features, but having a different pharmacological effect. In connection with the multiple polymorphism of the genus Polygonum, problems arise in the identification and procurement of raw materials. Taking into account the above, it is necessary to conduct a more complete study of the component composition of representatives of this genus using modern high-precision methods of analysis. Using the method of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), the possibility of identifying components of the composition of polygonum persicaria herbs has been studied. The presence of 62 components was found, among them phenolic compounds, sugars, fatty acids, etc.
