малина обыкновенная, ВЭЖХ, екстракт, сапонины


Aim. To study saponins of the raspberry cake ethanol extract.

Materials and methods. The object of the study was the extract obtained from the cake of Rubus idaeus fruit. The study of saponin compounds was carried out by HPLC.

Results and discussion. The following saponins were found in the extract: euscapic acid (0.24 %), tormentic acid (0.14 %), lupeol (0.65 %). These compounds are of interest to pharmacy and medicine as substances with the oncoprotective and hepatoprotective activity.

Conclusions. The qualitative and quantitative composition of saponins in the cake extract of raspberry fruits has been studied. The results indicate the prospects of creating new drugs based on biologically active substances of the raspberry fruit cake, as well as necessity of more profound study of phenolic compounds of this type of the raw material.
