OBJECTIVE: To systematically develop Epimedium spp. and control their quality. METHOD: Using polyamide and macroporous adsorbent resins AB-8. The compounds were identified on the basis of spectrometric data and physical and chemical test. RESULT: Four flavones were isolated from the herb. They were identified as wushanicariin, baohuoside VI, kaempferol-3,7-O-alpha-L-dirhamnoside and hexandraside E. CONCLUSION: These flavones were isolated from the herb and identified for the first time.
