Flowers petals from Talipariti elatum, a Caribbean tree belonging to Malvaceae family, have been extracted respectively with ethanol and 1,2-dimethoxyethane. The crystallization of the resulting extracts led to precipitates, which have been analyzed by UHPLC. Presence of gossypitrin (or gossypetin-7-O-glucoside) was revealed as major compound together with four others minor molecules.
