Extracts of Macrotyloma uniflorum plants were
examined as potential sources of phenolic compounds. Reversed phase high
performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) with UV detection was employed
for the identification and quantification of the phenolic acids. Eight
phenolic acids, namely, 3, 4-dihydroxy benzoic, p-hydroxy benzoic,
vanillic, caffeic, p-coumeric, ferulic, syringic and sinapic acids
were isolated from an ethanolic extract of Macrotyloma uniflorum.
The most abundant phenolic acids were p-coumaric acid (8.95 mg
10-2 g of dry sample) and p-hydroxy benzoic acid (7.81
mg/100 g of dry sample). PDFFulltextXMLReferencesCitation
