Formaldehyde, as its dimedone adduct, formaldemethone, has been detected and quantified in all species of Pteridophyta examined. The procedure involved the use of an Hypersil C-18 column, methanol-water (60: 40 v/v) as the mobile phase and an UV detector set at 258 nm. Quantification was based on peak height. Yields varied from 30 μg/g fresh weight for Polystichum setiferum to 5370 μg/g fresh weight for Selaginella viticulosa.
