A new Papaver species, P. kuvajevii Schaulo et Sonnikova, which is a rare species of the flora of western Sayan (relict, endemic), was discovered in 2003 at the Sayano-Shushenskii Natural Biosphere Reserve and described [1]. An investigation of the chemical composition of P. kuvajevii would prompt its industrial production while preserving the genetic resource of this natural endemic species if valuable biologically active constituents were found.

The goal of the present work was to study the alkaloid composition of P. kuvajevii. Herein we communicate results from a GC-MS investigation of the alkaloid composition of this plant.

Plant material (aerial part, stems, leaves, flowers, pods) was collected in July 2012 at Sayano-Shushenskii Natural Biosphere Reserve. Herbarium specimens are preserved at the Reserve Herbarium. The yield of substances from air-dried and ground aerial parts (285 g) that were extracted by EtOH in a Soxhlet apparatus was 12.6% (36.0 g). The EtOH extract was worked...
