The present study deals with the GC MS analysis of one Ayurvedic medicine Rohithakarishtam which is prescribed for spleen related diseases. The GC MS study was performed by standard procedures. The analysis of “Rohitakarishtam” indicated the some important biomolecules of significance such as 13-heptadecyn-1-ol, silane, diethylbutoxydecyloxy-, bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, 2,2,4-trimethyl-3-(3,8,12,16-tetramethyl-heptadeca-3,7,11,15-tetraenyl)-cyclohexanol, oleic acid, eicosyl ester, hexadecanoic acid, 1-[(2-aminoethoxy)hydroxyphosphinyl]-1,2-ethanediyl ester. The relationship between the claimed medicinal roles and the presence of biomolecules, as indicated by GC MS, seems encouraging and further work in this required is in process. The medicinal roles of few molecules present in Rohitakarishtam such as bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate, 2,2,4-trimethyl-3-(3,8,12,16-tetramethyl-heptadeca-3,7,11,15-tetraenyl)-cyclohexanol and hexadecanoic acid, 1-[(2-aminoethoxy)hydroxyphosphinyl]oxy]methyl]-1,2-ethanediyl ester are not known and further work in this regard is needed.
