Pangi Plant (Pangium edule Reinw)or also called one of the germlasm flora that produces fruit that can be consumed and potentially as drugs and herbs. Pangi is used as a snack, seasonings, food preservatives, and antiseptic medicienes. Pangi can be classified as a versatile tree species because almost all parts of this plant can be utilized. The purpose of this study was to identify the chemical compounds contained in the extract of methanol Leaf Pangi (Pangium edule Reinw). This type of research is a kind of pure experimental research using maseration method as separation technique and GC-MS is used to identify the compound contained in methanol extract of Pangi Leaf. The results showed that the main content of chemical compounds contained in methanol extract of Pangi Leaf was Octadecadienal acid 24,60%, Hexadecanoic acid 15,08%, Phytol 10,33%, Neophytadiene 5,21%, Squalene 21,22%, Anisole,M-(2-nitrovinyl)4.07%,(9Z)-9.17-octadecadienal 3,01%. Key words: Pangi Leaf, Chemical Compound, GC-MS.
