Using the method of HPLC there were detected 23 fenolic compounds in the air-dry raw of Tanacetum balsamita L. and 15 substances were identified: flavonoids luteolin, apigenin, diosmetin, acacetin, apigenin-7-bioside, acacetin-7-bioside, apigenin-7-glucoside, luteolin-7-glucoside, diocmetin-7-bioside, diosmetin-7-glucoside, diosmetin-7-rhamnoside, and hydroxycinnamic acids n-coumaric, caffeic, chlorogenic, isochlorogenic. The dominant compounds are isochlorogenic acid (35 % amount of fenolic compounds), diosmetin-7-glucoside (4,76), diosmetin-7-bioside (2,64), luteolin (2,25), diosmetin-7-rhamnoside (2,17 %). This results reveale perspectiveness of T. balsamita as a source of biologically active compounds — flavonoids and hydroxycinnamic acids.

Keywords: Tanacetum balsamita L., Asteraceae, Zhytomir Polissya, introduction, fenolic compounds, flavonoids, hydroxycinnamic acids
