Abstract

As a result of the identification of organic acids in grass of Alchemilla L. species found 8 organic acids: benzoic, ascorbic, oxalic, succinic, tartaric, malic, citric and salicylic. The quantitative content of the sum of free organic acids and ascorbic acid in various of Alchemilla L. species. In different Alchemilla L. species the quantitative total content of the free organic acids and ascorbic acid is within 1,46–2,88% and 0,16–0,26%, respectively, depending on the type of raw material and almost independing on the place of growth.
