An HPLC-PAD-MSn method was employed to profile the phenolic compounds of the aerial part of Artemisia pectinata (Neopallasia pectinata), a plant with no previous reports concerning its phenolic constituents. Three isomers of trans-caffeoylquinic acid accompanied by cis-5-caffeoylquinic acid, six isomers of trans-dicaffeoylquinic acid, two isomers of methyl transdicaffeoylquinate (including one new isomer), a trans-caffeoylferuloylquinic acid and three flavanoids were identified unambiguously by analysis of their UV and MSn spectra in comparison with standard compounds that were isolated from natural sources, or synthesised, or were surrogate standards (green coffee extract). Other compounds were identified by analysis of their UV and MSn data in comparison with those reported in the literature. MSn experiments also suggested the presence of groups of dicaffeoylquinic acid glycosides, caffeoylquinic acid diglycosides, caffeoylquinic acid glycosides and quinic acid diglycosides.
