The investigation was carried out to determine the possible bioactive components of the stem bark of Pteleopsis suberosa using GC-MS analysis. The chemical compositions of the methanol-chloroform (2:1 v/v) extract of the plants stem bark was investigated using GC-MS QP2010 PLUS, while the mass spectra of the compounds found in the extract was matched with the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) library. Twelve compounds were identified; Friedelan-3-ol (23.47%) was found to be major component followed by Di-n-octyl phthalate (17.23%), 9-Octadecenoic acid (Z)- (17.80%), Diethyl Hexadecanedioate (10.55%), Glycerol-1,2-dipalmitate (8.50%), 9,12-Octadecadienoic acid (Z,Z)- (7.08%), n-Hexadecanoic acid (6.85%).
