Cassia fistula leaves and their extracts are one of the most widely used herbal products and/ or dietary supplements in the world. A systematic study of the phytochemical compounds is necessary to establish quality parameters. A UPLC-ESI-QTOF-MS2 method was used to obtain chromatographic profiles for the compounds present in C. Fistula leaves. The method was used to identify 12 glycosylated phenolic compounds including one lignan, two phenolic acids and nine flavonoids in an aqueous leaf extract obtained under two extraction methods.
