Abstract

Our current research is investigating a detailed study of the morphological characteristics of the roots, steams, leaves and flowers of Althaea cannabina L. , and also Phenolic acids in the roots , leaves and flowers of this species were investigated by means high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) .The Phenolic acids occurring in these fractions have been identified as Chlorogenic acid , Caffeine, Cumaric acid , Ferulic acid , Vanillin , 2-6 Dimethyl Phenol , Salicylic acid , P-cresol , tzimt- savve , Eugenol . This research have been shown the contents of phenolic acids was higher in the flowers than in the leaves and roots in this species.
