<p><i>Inula graveolens</i> (L.) Desf. is an annual aromatic herb which has various uses on alternative medicine in many region of the world. In this study, antioxidant activities of ethanol and water extracts of the plant leaves were determined by <i>in vitro</i> DPPH method and phenolic composition of the plant sample was determined by LC-MS/MS analysis. The results showed that chlorogenic acid, quinic acid, hyperoside, protocatechuic acid and quercetin were the major phenolic compounds among the 27 standard compounds. The significant antioxidant capacity of the plant might be related with the high abundance of phenolic compounds.</p>
