This study was aimed at estimation of the diuretic and saluretic activity of 4-nitrophenyl-O-β-D-glucopyranoside and its aglicon 4-nitrophenol in rats. Test animals daily received 4-nitrophenyl-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (group 1) and 4-nitrophenol (group 2) intragastrically in 2 mL of distilled water in a dose of 18 μ mol/kg from 1st to 7th day and 54 |jmol/kg from 8th to 14th days. During the experiment, the most pronounced diuretic activity was observed for 4-nitrophe-nyl-O-β-D-glucopyranoside in a dose of 54 μmol/kg, which increased the diuresis in rats 2.5 times as compared to the control value.
