What is it about?
Chemical analysis of the bark from four Hyrcanian forest species, Pterocarya fraxinifolia, Alnus subcordata, Gleditsia caspica and Parrotia persica were performed, and their total phenol contents, and antioxidant and chelating activities were evaluated.

Why is it important?
Detailed and systematic studies are not available on the chemical analysis and antioxidant properties and bioactivity of the bark of these trees. The main objective of the present work is to fill in this gap and to analyze the chemical components and total phenol contents, and the antioxidant properties of the bark and to identify the components responsible for their bioactivity. The expectation is that the listed species could contribute with their more effective utilization to the socioeconomic development of the region.
