The use of drugs derived from plant-based materials or treatment derived from natural product's, is currently being developed, including in Indonesia. Indonesia is a country with various biodiversity. About 30,000 species of plants identified, and of all the species, 7,000 species are medicinal plants. One of the plants that are medicinal plants is mangosteen or in Latin, known as Garcinia mangostana-Linn (GML). Some literatures suggest mangosteen has the properties as a medicinal plant. The purpose of this study was to determine the phytochemical compounds of GML fraction of the pericarp ethanol extract. Phytochemical compounds of chloroform fraction, ethyl acetate fraction and ethanol fraction of ethanolic extract of GML pericarp were identified by gas chromatography - mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The result of this study indicates that the GML fractions, from ethanolic extract have various phytochemical compounds that potentially for development new medicine.
