Ximenia americana L., commonly known as white plum, features saponins, flavonoids and tannins. Due to its use by the general population, studies to specific potential pharmacological activities demonstrated antioxidant and analgesic action which directs the need for standardization of the contents of those metabolites. The present study aimed to physicochemical characterization of the stem of the species, starting from methodological protocol which included literature review, polyphenols content, pH and analysis by High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) using factorial design tool for determining the best chromatographic profile. Results include an average polyphenols content of 6.60 ± 0.156, and a 5.73 value for pH. HPLC analysis allowed the identification of the compound gallic acid. As conclusions, the authors note the need to use statistical tools for the development of reliable analytical methodologies for the identification of direct markers for species and contribute significantly to the future development of more complex analytical methods.
