ABSTRACT:     The polyphenols in the leaves of star anise (Illicium verum Hook. f.) were qualitatively and quantitatively determined by LC-Q-TOF-MS and LC-MS/MS. Twelve flavones and a phenolic acid were identified, mainly comprising vitexin-2"-O-rhamnoside (8780.12 µg/g) and vitexin-2"-O-xylopyranoside (575.46 µg/g), which have high free radical scavenging abilities and strong lipid peroxidation inhibitory activities. In addition, they could also reduce reactive oxygen species in HT-29 cells without cytotoxicity.
