Various species in genus Hibiscus are traditionally known for their therapeutic attributes. The current study focused on the phytochemical analysis of a rather unexplored species H. caesius, using the technique HPLC-MS. The analysis revealed five major compounds in the aqueous extract, viz. Vanillic acid, Protocatechoic acid, Quercetin, Quercetin glucoside and Apigenin, being reported for the first time in H. caesius. Literature suggests that these compounds have important pharmacological traits such as anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and hepatoprotective etc. however, this requires further pharmacological investigations.
