The chromatographic separation of the components of an ethereal extract of the leaves of “Mironovskaya 808” wheat has been performed. The presence in wheat of phthalic acid and its dimethyl, diethyl, and dibutyl esters has been shown for the first time. Substituted benzoic and cinnamic acids, p-hydroxybenzaldehyde, vanillin, 6-methoxybenzoxazolone, tricin, and aconitic and fumaric acids have also been isolated. The structures of the compounds isolated have been confirmed by IR, UV, mass, and NMR spectra.
