Abstract

Objective: Anthocyanins are one of the biologically active substances group playing an important role in the state of physiological functions referring to human health. This research aimed to investigate the anthocyanins profiles in the grape hyacinth (Muscari neglectum Guss. ex Ten.).
Materials and methods: The identification of individual anthocyanins was carried using the method of high-performance liquid chromatography with diode array detection and mass spectrometry with electrospray ionization (DAD-ESI-MS) analysis. Chromatographic separation and tandem mass spectrometric analyses were performed on an Agilent 1100 HPLC system and Agilent 6410 triple quadrupole system equipped with an electrospray ion source (ESI) in positive ion mode.
Results: In the M. neglectum flowers (tepals), nine individual anthocyanins, containing delphinidin, petunidin, malvidine, pelargonidin aglycones were found. In this research, we report anthocyanin profiles for the M. neglectum flowers for the first time.
Conclusion: The obtained results concerning anthocyanins composition may be very useful for researchers in the field of the standardization and activity evaluation of extracts produced from M. neglectum.
