LC-MS/MS Profiling of Flavonoid Composition and Assessment of Antioxidant Capacity of twenty four different Bamboo Species

Researching organically cultivated bamboo species for their antioxdiant capacities.

Bamboo is a rich source of flavonoids. These secondary plant metabolites exhibit many beneficial physiological effects such as anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-viral, anti-aging properties or prevention against cardio vascular diseases, which were exploited in traditional Chinese medicine TCM also [1]. Today, bamboo is widespread used in cosmetics and in the textile and food industry.

We investigated 24 bamboo species of genera Phyllostachys, Fargesia murielae and Sasa that were organically cultivated and harvested in Switzerland. Dried leaves were milled and extracted by accelerated solvent extraction (ASE). Clean-up of samples before LC-MS/MS analysis was achieved by solid phase extraction (SPE).
