The aerial part of dioecious nettle (Urtica dioica L., Urticaceae) collected in October 2001 in Hob region (western Georgia) was investigated. The air-dried ground raw material was extracted with CHCl3 and then CH3OH containing HCl (1%) in the dark at room temperature. The CH3OH extract was concentrated in vacuum at 35-40°C and chromatographed over a column of cellulose powder with elution by aqueous HCl (0.5%). Fractions were collected as the anthocyan bands eluted. Eluates of pure compounds… CONTINUE READING
