Dendrobium, is one of the most important herbs in the traditional Chinese medicine, which widely distributed throughout Asia, Europe and Australia. Nowadays, the quality and safety of different Dendrobium species in usage are still big problems, and few studies on it. In this study, 15 important species (60 samples) of Dendrobium were studied based on the compounds, including total polysaccharides, total alkaloids, dendrobine and bibenzyl by ultra-performance liquid chromatography. The results showed that D. devonianum has the secondary top contents of polysaccharides and alkaloids among all the species, and erianin is detected only in D. chrysotoxum. This investigation provides scientific evidences for quality control and sustained development of Dendrobium plants.
