Introduction: Wungu leaves (Graptophyllum pictum (L.) Griff) is one of the medicinal plants which has pharmacological activity in part of tidiabetes, antioxidants and estrogenic and is one of the medicinal plants that are widely used by the public. , flavonoids, saponins, steroids, anthocyanins and leukoanthocyanin. Research Objectives To identify compound compounds contained in Wungu Leaf Methanol Extract (Graptophyllum Pictum (L.) Griff) using Gas-Mas Chromatography Spectrometer (GC-MS). Type of Research: It is an experimental study, where the wungu in the picking are still fresh, not young and not too old, then washed with running water, then dried by direct sunlight (from 7-10 am), after being dried, a fine powder is made and then macerated with using methanol liquid for 7 days after it was filtered and then applied until thick extract was obtained, then GC-MS test was carried out. Results: found that Wungu leaves contain compounds such as Hexadecanoic acid, ethyl ester 1.31%; Hexadecanoic acid 12.02%; (2E) -3,7,11,15-tetramethyl-2-hexadecem-l-ol 4,81%; Pyridine-3-carboxamide, oxime, N- (2-trifluoromethylphenyl) 2.13%; 9-Tricosene 1.20%; Squalene 1.92%; Gamma.-Tocopherol 12.10%, Stigmasterol 3.28%; Beta-sitosterol 3.62%; Beta.-sitosterol 5.03%; Beta.-sitosterol 3.02%; 2,5,9-cyclotetradecatrien-l-ol, 2,6,10-trimethyl-13- (1-methylethenyl) -, Conclusion: From the results of GC-MS Wungu leaves obtained compounds that have a high concentration of Hexadecanoic Acid for this compound serves as an anti-bacterial and antioxidant 12.02 and Beta-sitosterol 3.28% which is a functional compound Beta-sitosterol can reduce cholesterol levels in in the blood and sometimes used in treating hypercholesterolemia. Key words: Wungu Leaf, Beta-sitosterol.
