Author(s): Ing. Pavol Kaššák
Abstract: This article puts together results from several preliminary testing on eight Iris, group Limniris, species. We used simple testing methods to prove the absence or presence of twelve chemical compounds (flavonoids, phenols, quinones, tannins, saponins, cardiac glycosides, terpenoids, alkaloids, steroids, glycosides, proteins) in samples from rhizomes, leaves and flowers of both botanical species and cultural hybrids. Together we used twenty five samples from the years 2012 and 2013. The best result, the highest amount of tested chemicals was in Iris pseudacorus ´Roy Davidson´, rhizome, 2013 and the worst result, the lowest amount of tested chemicals was in Iris pseudacorus, also the year 2013, but this sample was made from the flowers of wild species.
