The flower (inflorescence, basket-type inflorescence) of marigold (Calendulae officinalis flos) is a well-known plant raw material in traditional phytomedicine. Noteworthy is its rich chemical composition, which is dominated by flavonoids and terpenoids. Terpenoids are mainly represented by specific for this species oleanolic acid derivatives: triterpenoid saponins – calendulosides A-H and triterpenoid glycosides, so-called calendulaglycosides A and B. The biological activity profiles of the…
