Abstract

Artemisia albicerata is of great interest and occupy an important place among the vast variety of medicinal plants in Kazakhstan due to its endemicity, medical and pharmacological properties, and has a rich chemical composition consisting of amino acids, fatty acids, macro-micro elements, flavonoids and other low-molecular substances. In the present study, Artemisia albicerata, collected in Almaty region of Kazakhstan has been explored with the purpose of quantitative and qualitative analysis. As a result, twenty amino and eight fatty acids were identified by gas-liquid chromatography. The major amino acid contents were glutamate (2615 mg/100 g), aspartate (1296 mg/100 g) and alanine (890 mg/100 g), while the composition of fatty acids mainly was oleic (19.6%) and linoleic (68.4%) acids. Furthermore, eleven macro-micro elements were determined in the ash of a plant by the method of multi-element atomic emission spectral analysis, main of them were Ca (59986.1 μg/g), K (60392.3 μg/g), Mg (12170.1 μg/g), Na (5570.3 μg/g), Fe (3571.7 μg/g). Also it should be highlighted that total bioactive components such as organic acids, flavonoids, tannins, coumarins, alkaloids, saponins, polysaccharides together with the moisture content (6.62%), total ash (7.96%) and extractives (12.7%) have been determined.
