Corydalis adiantifolia Hook.f. & Thomson (Fumariaceae) is a herb known as shampoo (Balti) in Shigar valley, Baltistan. In addition, other Corydalis species have been reported as antidiabetic, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic. Phytochemical study has exhibited the presence of mostly alkaloids in various Corydalis species. C. adiantifolia, to the best of our knowledge, has not been investigated so far for any kind of phytochemical analysis. In our present study, the n-hexane, dichloromethane and ethyl acetate fractions of the methanol extract of Corydalis adiantifolia Hook.f. & Thomson (Fumariaceae) were studied through gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis. A number of phytoconstituents are found in these fractions. The phytoconstituents reported in our present study include different esters, long chain alcohols, ketones, aldehydes and carboxylic acids, phenols, etc. More interestingly, different alkaloids are being reported in this study. Protopine, hydrastine, hydrastinine, oxyhydrostinine, (RS)-stylopine, oxoberberine, D-bicuculline and norsanguinarine are the main alkaloids reported through GC-MS in different fractions of C. adiantifolia.
