INTRODUCTION The genus Echinacea (Asteraceae) comprises about 10 species originally distributed in North America. Three species are very well known as they are used worldwide as medicinal plants: Echinacea purpurea, E. pallida, E. angustifolia. OBJECTIVE To discriminate between these three Echinacea species and E. simulata by (1)H NMR-based metabolomics. METHODOLOGY (1)H NMR and multivariate analysis techniques were applied to diverse Echinacea plants including roots and aerial parts… CONTINUE READING
