Romanian flora comprises a significant number of vegetal species, some of these already established in terms of chemical composition and pharmacological potential. Also, currently on the national profile market there are many plant-derived products for internal or external use that contain standardized extracts or herbal powders. So, it is very important for the plant-derived products production process to have quality control methods for raw materials and for finished products. In the context of complex chemical composition of vegetal raw material, depending on the cultivating region, the climate (temperature, humidity, light and wind), the harvest time and plants part used, the chromatographic fingerprint can certify the species, chromatographic fingerprint of vegetal products being one of the most simple and feasible method of quality control. Accordingly, High-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC) has become one of the most important tool for quality control of plant-derived products on basis of its simplicity and accurately, as well. It can serve as a tool for instance, depending on the chromatographic conditions, HPTLC method can identify numerous classes (16) of vegetal compounds. Given these, this paper was aims at presenting HPTLC chromatographic phenolic fingerprint of some valuable Romanian vegetal species as follows: Juglans regia L. - walnut, Morus nigra L. - mulberry tree, Althaea officinalis L.- marshmallow, Carum carvi L.- caraway, Crataegus monogyna Jacq. - hawthorn, Tilia cordata Mill. - linden, Achillea millefolium L. - yarrow determined by HPTLC, species present in many plantderived products.
