Abstract

The flavonoid rutin is the main content of the a queous extract of
the Iraqi plant Alhagi graecorum (family Leguminosae) which was
given to patients with different dental diseases and gave successful
results In this investigation , the amount of rutin is determined and was
found to be 4mg/100gm of the dried plant and it is equivalent to
4mg/500ml (0.8mg/100ml) of the mouthwash formula which was
prepared in this study This study reported for the first time the expiration date of rutin
in the prepared formula and was found to be 2.1 years. It also reported
for the first time that the ionic strength, buffer type and buffer concentration had no effect on the hydrolysis of rutin. Photochemical decomposition of rutin was also reported with an
expiration date of 4 months. There was also no significant decrease in the concentration of rutin when kept in a plastic container (where the concentration of rutin be 0.79 mg/100 ml), however, the glass container is recommended The results indicated that the Iraqi plant can be used to prepare an effective and stable mouthwash with a low cost since the plant is
widely distributed all over the country
