Abstract: The aim of this work was to evaluate and isolate chemical constituents of Monanthotaxis pilosa, an endemic medicinal plant from Madagascar. Fourteen compounds were identified. Three of them were isolated from ethyl acetate leaves extract on silica column and identified to epihederagenine 1, negletein 2 and epicatechin 3 by spectrometric techniques (NMR) and DRX. An high-performance liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry method was developed to investigate the presence of phenolic compounds in the studied samples; coumaric acid, chlorogenic acid, ferulic acid, hyperoside, isoquercitrin, rutin, quercitrin, quercetol, kaempferol, apigenine and myricetol were identified. Total flavonoid content was determined by a spectrophotometric method using AlCl3 reagent. The leaves of Monanthotaxis pilosa can be considered an important source of flavonoids, especially of quercitrin.
