Aims of this study were to investigation the presence of phytochemical compounds in the methanolic extract of Cressa cretica L. leaves by using GC-MS method and report the functional groups by using FT-IR spectroscopy. The identification of phytochemical compounds based on the peak area, retention time, molecular weight, molecular formula, MS fragment ions. Thirty four phytochemical compounds were identification in the methanolic extract of Cressa cretica leaves. The GC-MS analysis provide the existence of 5-Methyl-6-phenyltetrahydro-1,3-oxazine-2-thione, Lactose, 3-Deoxy-L-ribose-2,5-dibenzoate, Sarreroside, Pterin-6-carboxylic acid, Octadecadiynoic acid, methyl ester, d-Mannose, Dodecanoic acid, 3-hydroxy-, Geranyl isovalerate, Tetradecanoic acid , 6-epi-shyobunol, Paromomycin, Cis-9-Hexadecenoic acid, and others. The FT-IR analysis revealed the presence of Alkenes, aliphatic amines, nitro compounds, alkanes. These are chemical compounds are may be useful for various herbal formulation as antifungal, antibacterial, anti- inflammatory, anti-oxidant and others.
