Analysis of the Relationship Between the Accumulation of Pollutants and Principal Groups of Biologically Active Substances in Medicinal Plant Raw Materials Using Knotweed (Polygonum Aviculare L.) and Broadleaf Plantain (Plantago Major L.) Leaves as Examples

The relationship between the contents of heavy metals and principal groups of biologically active substances in plant raw material was traced using Polygonum aviculare L. and Plantago major L. collected in ecologically different regions of Voronezh Oblast as examples. Close negative correlations were found between flavonoids of P. aviculare and copper, cadmium, and zinc and between water-soluble polysaccharides from P. major leaves and chromium, nickel, and arsenic. The results were relevant to research on plant pharmacognosy and physiology.
