The purpose of this study was determination the Phytochemical composition of extract Leaves and Fruits of Capparis spinosa L. (Cabar), by using Gas Chromatography-Mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Thirty chemical compounds were identified in the extracts, the identification of function chemical compounds is based on the molecular weight, retention time, molecular formula and peak area. (GC-MS) analysis showed existence a highly complex compounds. Seven Chemical compounds common between both extracts which it; Steroids;- Campesterol, Stigmasterol, gamma.-Sitosterol. Terpenes only one compound commo; 3-Cyclohexene-1-methanol, .alpha.,.alpha.,4-trimethyl- acetate. From other side there's compounds found only in extract leaves such as; Benzoic acid, alpha.-Tocopherol-.beta.-D-mannoside, Eucalyptol, Phytol. Megastigmatrienone, Dichloroacetic acid, Dichloroacetic acid, tridec-2-ynyl ester. Isophthalic acid, hexadecyl neopentyl ester.As for Alkaloides only one compound recorded: 1-Methyl-pyrrolidine-2-carboxylic acid 4,8,12,16-Tetramethylheptadecan-4-olid,While Fruit extract unilateral in others compounds such as; 4H-Pyran-4-one, 2,3-dihydro-3,5-dihydroxy-6-methyl, Fucosterol. Which it strengthened Taxonomic value for this study.
