The main objective of the paper was the pharmacognostic analysis of the microscopic and chemical species of the aerial part of the species Cerastium bulgaricum Uechtr. sin. Cerastium gracile Dufour, to establish the chemical composition and especially to identify active principles that scientifically substantiate the traditional use of the plant product.
The microscopic analyses of the vegetative organs (stem and leaf) the species Cerastium bulgaricum Uechtr led to the conclusion that its histo-anatomical structure is specific to Caryophyllaceae.
Following the global chemical analysis, active principles known in the literature for the antioxidant potential were identified. Following the preliminary quantitative determinations (drying loss, determination of soluble substances) results comparable to those in the literature on the content of volatile substances and soluble substances were obtained.
The separation, identification and quantification of poliphenols compounds were made through high performance of liquid chromatography (HPLC), standardized method according to USP30-NF25 Monograph
