The profile of antioxidant compounds of the analyzed extracts was investigated by chromatographic analysis using a Shimadzu Nexera X2 ultra-high performance liquid chromatograph (UHPLC) equipped with a Shimadzu DAD detector and a Nucleosil 100-3-C13 reversed-phase column. Measurements were performed in the wavelength range of 200-600 nm. The plant material subjected to extraction was hawthorn leaves (Vaccinum myrtills).

Different solvent extracts were tested and we found that the 70% hydroalcoholic extracts have the highest content in antioxidant compounds, the content of the extracts varying between 8.05 – 3258.73 mg/L.
