This work is aimed at the development of an “one-pot” technique for the production of the natural antioxidant quercetin (QR) from the buds of Sophora Japanese (Sophora japonica L.) using the subcritical water (SBW). For the first time, SBW that serves as a reactant and a solvent has been used to obtain QR in good yields starting from the buds of Sophora Japanese. High-performance liquid chromatography was used to determine the quantitative and qualitative compositions of the obtained products. For the first time, a new eco-friendly “one-pot” technique was proposed for production of QR from the buds of Sophora Japanese using SBW. This method of preparation of QR allows one to avoid the use of toxic organic solvents. The good yields of the targeted QR can be obtained for the period of time which is ten times shorter than needed by the traditional procedures.
