We have invest igated the flavonoid composi t ion of th ree spec ies of sage: Salvia s e r avschan ica Regel et Schmalh. , S_ kopetda~hensis Kudr. , and S_. dese r t a Schang. F r o m these spec ies we have isolated nine subs tances of flavonoid nature . The aglycones apigenin (I)(S__. kopetdaghensis) and luteolin (II) (S. s e r a v s c h anica and S. kopetdaghensis) were identified f r o m their UV and NMR s p e c t r a and by compar i son with authentic s amples . The other seven subs tances consis ted of flavone glycosides .
