The genus Bupleurum L. is a monophyletic genus of the family Umbelliferae that comprises up to 190 species, representatives of which are broadly distributed in the northern hemisphere and are used traditionally in European and Asian countries as drugs [1]. Thus, the aerial part of several Bupleurum species (zi ra ser po) is used in Tibetan medicine for gastrointestinal diseases, disorders of circulatory organs, and as a cholegogic agent [2]. In Russia, B. multinerve is a pharmacopoeial species, the preparation “Buplerin” of which is recommended for prevention and treatment of capillary toxicosis and hemorrhages of various etiologies [3]. About 250 compounds representing classes such as triterpene glycosides, sesquiterpenes, flavonoids, and polyynes were isolated from plants of this genus [1, 3]. Considering the satisfactory raw material reserves of Bupleurum species in Buryatia and their unknown chemical compositions, we studied phenolic compounds from five Bupleurum species.
