The present investigation was focused on the UV-VIS spectrum, FT-IR and GC-MS Analysis of Calanthe masuca (D.Don) Lindl. The organic solvent methanol was taken for extraction. The leaf part of Calanthe masuca which belongs to the Orchidaceae family. The UV-VIS profile showed different peaks ranging from 220-970 nm with different absorption respectively. The FTIR spectrum confirmed the presence of compound such as alcohol, alkane, carboxylic acid, aldehyde, allene, cyclic alkene, alky halide, aromatic compound, isothiocyanate and alkenes in leaf methanol extract. The results of the GC-MS analysis provide for leaf extract which have dissolved to shows different peaks. The major peak of Leaf extract are 3-Tetradecanynoic acid, 9,12- Octadecadienoic acid (Z,Z)-, n-Hexadecanoic acid, L-proline, 1-acetyl, Neophytodiene. Therefore this plant had potential bioactive compounds.
