Grain Halmahera (Setaria italica beauv l.) is one of the natural results of processing and utilization of Indonesia which is still very limited, in North Halmahera only utilized as food and has never done research on seyawa content contained in Wheat Seed of Halmahera. This research was conducted to identify the chemical compounds contained in the methanol extract Grain Halmahera (setaria italica beauv.). Design of experimental research is purely done on pharmaceutical laboratories STIKES Halmahera. The technique of its secession is maceration using methanol as the liquid Cromatography method and penyari Gass Mass Spektrometry used to identify compounds contained in methanol extracts of wheat Seed of Halmahera. The results showed that the methanol extract of wheat grains contain Linoleic acid compound Halmahera ethyl ester 3.48%, Methyl (9z, 12z)-9.12-octadecadienoate 72.86% and, 9.12-octadecanoic acid 23.11%. Key words: Setaria italica beauv l., GC-MS, chemical compound.
