In the present paper are discussed the results of the investigations of the phenylpropanoids of the medicinal plants which are of the great interest as the sources of the neurotropic, adaptogenic, immunostimulating, antioxidative, and hepatoprotective preparations. There were shown the necessity of using of the standard samples of triandrin (Rhodiola rosea L. tissue cultures, Salix viminalis L. barks), rosavin (Rhodiola rosea L. rhizomes), syringin, or eleutheroside B [Eleutherococcus senticosus (Rupr. et Maxim.) Maxim. rhizomes, Syringa vulgaris L. barks], and silybin [Silybum marianum (L.) Gaertn. fruits] for purpose of the standardization of the corresponding drugs and pharmaceuticals. It was shown also the significance of γ-schizandrin, chicoric acid, rosmarinic acid and lavandoside for purposes of the standardization of raw material and preparations of Schizandra chinensis Baill. fruits and seeds, Echinacea purpurea (L.) Moench. herbs, Melissa officinalis L. herbs and Lavandula spica L. flowers respectively.
