Abstract:


Background: olygonum maritimum is one of the spontaneous halophyte plants of the Alge-rian coast. Many studies were carried out to evaluate the contents and the quality of phenolic com-pounds of this plant around the Mediterranean region. Objective: This paper intends to identify, for the first time, the phenolic compounds from the flower part of P. maritimum.

Method: RP-HPLC-PDA (Reversed Phase-High Performance Liquid Chromatography-Photo Diode Array) material was used for this purpose. Many standards were used and their retention times were stored in a local database. Identification was made on the basis of retention times of retained compounds and those found in the literature, and UV spectra of each peak.

Results: This study intends to identify five phenolic acids (gallic, ferulic, sinapic, caffeic and syringic acids), one flavonol (rutin) and one flavanone (naringenin).

Conclusion: P. maritimum is an important source of natural bioactive compounds that can be exploited for the benefit of many fields.
