Chemical and biochemical substances present in marine organisms are a rich source of structurally novel and biologically active metabolites. The present study was carried out to analyse the total carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, phenols and flavonoids from the simple ascidian Ascidia sydneiensis. The results showed that the specimen was rich in flavonoids (49.81%) followed by proteins (28.76%), lipids (23.94%), phenols (8.59%) and carbohydrates (5.08%). Ascidia sydneiensis possess higher percentage of flavonoid and lower carbohydrate. Observations suggest that this commonly available ascidian has active biochemical potential possessing antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties for curing various ailments which can lead to the isolation of new and novel compounds
