Summary

Among the 600 plant samples chemically investigated in the micro-screening survey, some 56 plants proved to contain considerable amounts of tannins. These include some 29 genera and 16 species, not known before in the plant kingdom to contain tannins.

Detailed studies have already started to evaluate some of those plants rich in tannins for tanning purposes and to isolate and identify some of their polyphenolic components.

Résumé

Parmi 600 échantillons de plantes examinées chimiquement d'après une micro-méthode, 56 plantes furent trouvées contenant quantités considérables de tanins. Ces plantes font partie de 26 genres et de 16 espèces, dont le contenu en tanin n'était pas connu jusqu'à présent.

Des recherches détaillées sont déjà entreprises pour découvrir les plantes riches en tanins au but de les employer en tannerie et à isoler et identifier leurs combinaisons polyphénoliques.
