Results of the investigation of composition and content of the flavonol complex in Aconogonon alpinum (All.) Schur which is widespread in the Altay are reported. The above-ground part of the plants contains glycosides: astragalin, quercetrin, avicularin, hyperoside, quercetin-3,7-diglucoside, rutin, myricitrin, and aglycones: kaempferol, quercetin and myricetin. The concentration and qualitative composition of flavonols in the plants collected in the phase of mass blooming in the Ust-Kan District of the Republic of Altay (meadow steppe, 293 km along the road to Tuekta village) were investigated by means of HPLC. Due to the high content of flavonols (up to 10.35 %) and the rich qualitative composition, A. alpinum can be used as a source of these very valuable compounds with high biological activity and low toxicity.
