- To clarify and quantify the chemical profile of YiXinShu Tablet rapidly, a feasible and accurate strategy was developed by applying ultra high performance liquid chromatography with Q Exactive hybrid quadrupole orbitrap high‐resolution accurate mass spectrometry. A total of 105 components were identified, including 25 phenanthraquinones, 11 lactones, 19 lignans, 24 acids, and 26 other compounds. Among them, 26 major compounds were unambiguously detected by comparing with reference standards. And 19 of these compounds in three batches of YiXinShu Tablet were selected for quantitative determination. (Z)‐Ligustilide, salvianic acid A, salvianolic acid A, salvianolic acid B, and rosmarinic acid were abundant in these three batches with contents over 1 mg/g. The established analysis methods were examined to be accurate and feasible. The results show that the ultra high performance liquid chromatography with Q Exactive hybrid quadrupole orbitrap high‐resolution accurate mass spectrometry method has a powerful qualitative ability and promising quantitative application.
