Using different extraction solvents, a preliminary chemical profile of the leaves from Morus alba L. that grow in Cuba was done. Chromatographic characterization after extraction with Ethyl Acetate, Hexane, Ethanol at 30%, EtOH 50% and EtOH 80% from three section of the leaves (low, middle, high) by GCMS-QP 2010 Ultra Shimadzu were matched with NIST libraries after samples de- rivatization. Higher amount of chemical components was get by the extraction with hexane, while the lowest was with EtOH at 30%. Rotenone, a flavonoid that belongs to Rotenoids subgroup was detected only five times into the extracts.
