Talipariti elatum (Sw.), commonly named Blue Mahoe, is used as antasthmatic, antitussive, against catarrh and expectorant in phytotherapy in Cuba, although the plants’ composition has not been determined in detail so far. An ethanolic extract from the bark of Talipariti elatum Sw. (Fryxell) Malvaceae that grows in Cuba was prepared by Soxhlet extraction with ethanol at 95% during 20 hours. The crude extract without purification was analyzed using a GCMS-QP2010 Ultra Shimadzu, and the components were identified by comparing their retention times and their mass spectra with those of NIST21Library. About 45 different chemical compounds were detected in the sample and from them, 31 chemical components were characterized and reported for the first time from Talipariti elatum. Our results demonstrate the developed method could be employed as a rapid and versatile analytical technique for identification of chemical constituents and quality control of Talipariti samples.
