Introduction. Infusions are water extracts that do not require either sophisticated equipment or expensive or scarce extractants. From a biopharmaceutical point of view, aqueous extracts provide good availability of drug substances. Compared with individual medicinal substances, they have a milder and simultaneous complex effect on the body. These circumstances are one of the reasons that these dosage forms, which appeared even before Galen, still retained their significance. In the formulation

Therefore, the study of water extraction technology is important for the practical activities of the pharmacist. Materials and methods. As objects of the study a medical plant collection was used, which included clover inflorescence, yarrow grass, linden flowers, thyme grass, which were selected for the pharmaceutical development of the collection for non-hormonal therapy of menopausal syndrome. Purified water was used as extractant. The completeness of extraction was determined by the quantitative content of extractives and flavonoids content, expressed as rutin. In order to study the effect of various pharmaceutical factors on the release of extractives from medicinal plant materials, three collection fractions were studied that were identical in composition but different in degree of grinding components, which were obtained by sifting through sieves No. 1, 2, 3. Medicinal raw materials were ground by grass cutter. The particle size of the first fraction was 1–3 mm, the second fraction was 3–4 mm, and the third was 4–6 mm. Based on the obtained results, a fraction of 1–3 mm was selected for further studies to substantiate the extraction parameters Results & Discussion. To optimize the extraction conditions, the level of extractives from medicinal plant materials with a grinding degree of 1–3 mm was studied under the above extraction conditions. As [...]
