The identification of chemical compounds in Nipah (Nypa fruticans Wurmb) endosperm has been done. The extraction of chemical compounds in Nipah endosperm has been done using the maceration method with heating and followed with absorbs-desorbs on active carbon given ethanol fraction. The result obtained was a brownish-yellow fraction. The phytochemical screening test did on endosperm and ethanol fraction. Phytochemical screening results showed that the Nipah endosperm contains phenolic, tannin, flavonoid, and saponin compounds, while the ethanol fraction of Nipah endosperm did not contain alkaloid, flavonoid, steroid, triterpenoid, phenolic, tannin, and saponin compounds. Based on UV-vis, IR, and GCMS spectra, the ethanol fraction contains of furfural compounds.
