Relatively simple, but very reliable, one-step qualitative/quantitative HPLC analysis of four key flavonoids, and a phenolcarboxylic acid, has been introduced. For substrate/sample preparations, either triple percolations, using 70% ethanol-water (V/V), or/and ultrasonic bath methanol extractions, were carried out to obtain the desired isolates yie...

Rosa canina L. extracts were prepared using water or three natural deep eutectic solvents (NADESs: betaine+malic acid, betaine+sucrose, and citric acid+sucrose with 50% of water) and maceration. The extracts were characterized in terms of total polyphenol content (TPC), ABTS radical scavenging potential, extraction yield, zeta potential, conductivi...

This paper presents an analysis of the morphological and anatomical characteristics of the aboveground parts (herba) of clary sage (Salvia sclarea L.), with an emphasis on the investigation of its surface structures. After the procedure of the primary processing and drying of the plant material, it was determined that the composition of the crushed...

This study aimed to assess the optimal extraction parameters, solvent-to-solid ratio, and extraction time, for ultrasound-assisted extraction of Satureja montana L. (winter savory) harvested from a 6-year-old experimental plantation. The optimization was performed in order to acquire extracts that are rich in the content of polyphenols (TPC), flavo...

In the present study, basil (Ocimum basilicum L.) and lovage (Levisticum officinale Koch.) extracts were obtained using maceration, ultrasound- and microwave-assisted extractions (UAE and MAE, respectively). Varying the different extraction solvents, including water, methanol, acetone, and ethyl acetate, the analyses of total polyphenol and flavono...

Even though Melissa officinalis L. (lemon balm, fam. Lamiaceae) is a well-known medicinal, aromatic, and spicy plant, and its physicochemical profile and biological activity have been investigated, there is no detailed research regarding the influence of solvent nature (polarity) on the extraction of active compounds (total polyphenols and total fl...

The term "phytopreparations" indicates products with active substances obtained from medicinal plants. Herbal medicines, extracts, essential oils, and isolated active principles are present in both cosmetology and dermatology. The new term, "cosmeceutical" refers to cosmetic preparations which also have therapeutic action. A review of relevant lite...

Birch leaves and bark are traditionally used for folk medicine for centuries. Numerous research focused on the chemical composition and biological effects of birch extracts. The main pharmacologically active compounds found in extracts are flavonoids, saponins, tannins, essential oil, and triterpenes. Different species, age of the plant, geographic...
