Talipariti elatum Sw. (Fryxell) Malvaceae is a quite attractive tree with its straight trunk, broad green leaves, and hibiscus-like flowers. This medicinal plant is use in various traditional medicine therapeutic applications in Cuba, especially in treatment of bronchial asthma and flu. From ethanolic and toluene extracts of the flowers our research group have characterized more than 50 different chemical compounds as secondary metabolites. One of them, gossypitrin, a glucoside flavonoid isolated and purified from ethanolic extract of the petals had been reported as antibacterial and antifungal and to possess a remarkable antioxidant activity against a lot of amount of different ROS and RNS. Here, in our study, we realized the determination of total phenolic content from the total ethanolic extract using the petals of the flowers and the measurements of the oral acute toxicity of the main flavonoid in the petals of the flowers of T. elatum.

Keywords: Talipariti, Petals, Phenolic content, Oral acute toxicity, Gossypitrin.
