An effective method for obtaining secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG) purified of lignan from extract of Linum usitatissimum seeds was proposed. The lignan-containing concentrate obtained by aqueous ethanol extraction with microwave irradiation was purified using column chromatography. The structure of the compound was confirmed using IR, mass, and NMR spectra.
