Background: Plants play an important role in the environment by supporting all types Background: Pangi (Pangium edule Reinw. Ex Blume) thrives in most parts of Southeast Asia, including Indonesia. The pangi plant is a versatile plant where almost all parts of this plant have benefits. Research Objectives: To identify phytol compounds in the ethanol extract of pangi leaves (Pangium edule Reinw. Ex Blume) using the Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS) method. Type of Research: This type of research is experimental research with a laboratory scale. Based on the results of the GC-MS analysis that has been carried out, it can be concluded that the ethanol extract of pangi leaves (Pangium edule Reinw. Ex Blume) contains a group of chemical compounds Phytol with a content of 10.33%. Pangi shows an effective antifungal activity; as an antioxidant and antibacterial.
