Abstract: 

The aim of this study is to quantify the amount of phenols, tannins and flavonoids present in different fractions of root tubers of Ipomoea mauritiana, a traditional medicinal twining shrub and GC-MS profiling of acetone extract. It was found that the higher contents of phenolics (285.05mg GAE/g extract), tannins (190.02mgGAE/g extract) and flavonoids (174.44mgRE/g extract) were determined to be present in acetone fraction. Further, the GC-MS analysis of the acetone extract revealed the presence of 27major compounds. It indicates the presence of therapeutic potential of this species.
