Introductions: This study summarizes the main findings of the preliminary characterization of plant material obtained from the bark of avocados from Peru and Cuba (Persea americana) used to obtain perseitol, an active ingredient, with a high potential as raw material in the further development of pharmaceutical formulations. Material and Methods: Avocado plants, purple variety, used in the study were planted in the Experimental Station of Medicinal Plants Dr. Juan Tomas Roig, Cuba. To study the physico-chemical parameters were used IR spectroscopy and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), as well as other tests described in the Branch Standard of the Ministry of Public Health (NRSP 309). Results: The results obtained for each sample tested, showed no significant differences between the perseitol obtained from Cuba in relation to Peru. Conclusions: These preliminary results demonstrated that perseitol has quality enough for its use in pharmaceutical formulations.
