Using HPLC method was studied the component composition of phenolic compounds of the fractions from extracts of the seven Saussurea DC species, grown in Siberia: S. controversa DC, S. latifolia Ledeb., S. parviflora (Poir.) DC, S. frolovii Ledeb., S. amara (L.) DC, S. salicifolia DC, S. daurica Adams. In samples S. amara, S. frolowii, S. daurica, S. salicifolia, S. latifolia, S. controversa a significant amount of syringin (up to 25.0 mg/g of extract) was found. Phenol carboxylic acids are chlorogenic, caffeic, ferulic, syringic, oxybenzoic and salicylic acids with a predominance of chlorogenic acid (up to 53.3 mg/g). Isocvercitrine is identified in S. parviflora, S. amara, S. salicifolia and S. frolowii, cynaroside in S. daurica and S. frolowii, hyperoside in S. salicifolia and S. parviflora; rutin in S. amara, S. controversa and S. parviflora. In S. salicifolia ethylacetate fractions avicularin was found for the first time. The content of flavonoids in seven Saussurea species from 28.1 to 133.2 mg/g of extract was changed.
