The investigation was carried out to determine the possible bioactive components of leaf and bark of Hypericum mysorense using GC-MS. The chemical compositions of the ethanol extract of leaf and bark of Hypericum mysorense were investigated using Perkin-Elmer Gas Chromatography-Mass spectrometry, while the mass spectra of the compounds found in the extract was matched with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) library. 17 compounds from leaves were identified of which lupulon, 1,2,4-Cyclopentanetrione, 3,3-bis (3-methyl-2-butenyl)-5-(3-methyl-1-oxobutyl)- [synonyms: Hulupone] and deoxyartemisinin were found to be predominant compounds whereas there are 8 compounds were detected from the bark of Hypericum mysorense of which Sucrose, Diazoprogesterone and Squalene were found to be major compounds identified.
