Two compounds, nicotiflorin and rutin, are isolated and idenitified from flowers of Echinacea purpurea (L.) Moench., of the family Asteraceae, cultivated in Samara oblast. It is established that nicotiflorin (3-O-rutinoside campherol) is the dominant flavonoid of Echinacea purpurea; it is described along with rutin for the first time for this plant, cultivated in the Russian Federation and CIS countries.
