This manuscript reports on the first CE-method suitable for analyzing twelve pharmacologically relevant compounds (flavonoids, caffeic acids and leontopodic acid) in the aerial parts of Leontopodium alpinum. By using a 60mM borax buffer containing 25mM SDS and 35% acetonitrile the analytes could be well resolved in 25min and accurately determined in different Edelweiss specimens. Method validation assured compliance of the assay to ICH standards (correlation coefficients≥0.999, LOD≤7.2μg/ml, LOQ≤23.0μg/ml, recovery rates from 96.6 to 101.1%, intermediate precision≤7.01%, and repeatability≤5.52%). The quantitative results revealed a strong dependence of the content of phenolics on the growth status of the plants. In early stages no flavonoids were found, while during blooming all metabolites reached higher levels; commercially cultivated plant material showed the overall highest values (flavonoids: 0.25 - 0.34%, caffeic acids: 4.99 - 6.21%, leontopodic acid: 4.21 - 5.05%).
