:       The chemical study dealt with the chemical content of the studied leaves of the Sidr plant Ziziphius rugosa. The chemical compounds were identified using Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) technology by comparing the chemical content. It was revealed that the studied sample contained the compound 3-Butyn-1-ol. The appearance of a repeat of the chemical compound was also recorded. 3-Butyn-1-ol six times in the leaves of the plant under study and with different curved areas and retention times for the same species using the GC-Mass device. Nine chemical compounds were detected accumulated in the leaves of the Sidr plant Ziziphius rugosa, with the highest area value being 18.79% at The peak is 15 with a holding time of 31.388 minutes for the active compound Squalene, while the lowest area is 1.55 at peak 8 with a holding time of 21.210 minutes for the compound Vaccenoylglycerol cis-1 (Figure 4-1), and the highest percentage appeared for the active compound 3-Butyn-1-ol with a value of 30.32% after collecting six different peaks (1,2,3,5,9,14)
