Present study reports the identification of active phytochemicals from Prasarinyadi kashayam using UPLC-ESI-QTOF-MS. During the preparation of kashayam, phytochemicals present in plant parts may undergo different types of reaction such as condensation, decomposition, hydrolysis, dimerization, substitution, polymerization and metal complex formation. So, the kashayam is the complex mixture of various compounds or phytochemicals with different or same polarities and molecular mass. Their separation still remains a big challenge for the process of identification and characterization. The identification of such a complex mixture can be done easily and accurately by LCMS analysis. UPLC-ESI-QTOF-MS analysis identified 19 phyto- constituents. Identified compounds included secondary metabolites like phenolic compounds, flavonoids and alkaloids. On detailed literature the identified compounds found to be highly antioxidant, immunostimulant and anti-inflammatory.
