Abstract

Jatropha curcas is a plant of the Euphorbiaceae family. This study aims to analyze the chemical compoundscontained in Jatropha curcas leaves using Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GCMS). Jatrophaleaves obtained from the area of Sedati, Juanda Sidoarjo were extracted using methanol as a solvent. Thenthe two extracts of Jatropha leaves were analyzed using GCMS. The results showed that the methanol extractof Jatropha leaves contained 28 chemical compounds and then analyzed their biological activity. It can beconcluded that Jatropha leaves contain a lot of chemical compounds that have biological activity for health.
