An organic chemical compound Myristica fragrans in North Minahasa Regency has been identified. Myristica fragrans North Minahasa Regency includes species that are not yet known and there has been no release of varieties. Identification of M. fragrans North Minahasa Regency was investigated using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) method. The sample was from the pericarp of M. fragrans. This study was able to identify Patchouli alcohol,1(2H)-Naphthalenone, octahydro-4a,8a-dimethyl-7-(1-methylethyl)-, [4aR-(4aα,7ß,8aα)]-,and Neoisolongifolane,hydroxy-, 1H-Cyclopropa[a]naphthalene,1a,2,3,5,6,7,7a,7b-octahydro-1,1,7,7a-tetramethyl,[1aR(1aα,7a,7aα,7bα)]-; 4,7-Methanoazulene, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8-octahydro-1,4,9,9-tetramethyl-, [1S-(1a,4a,7a)]-; and isoledene. Further research is needed on its biological activity.
