Purpose: This study aims to identify the potency of antioxidant agent in nutgrass rhizomes (Cyperus rotundus L.) extract. Research Methodology: Sample of nutgrass rhizomes were taken from Lampung Province and was extracted with ethanol and chloroform solvent. Later, those extracts were analyzed by Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GCMS) and the chemical compound identified was compared to literature to know the potency of the antioxidant agent. Results: This study shows that in the nut grass root extract using ethanol solvent, there were 116 compounds with 6 main compounds, meanwhile in the nut grass rhizomes extract using chloroform solvent, of 142 compounds, there were 11 main compounds. Of the 6 main compounds of ethanol extract and 11 main compounds of chloroform extract of nut grass rhizomes, which is proven to have potential as an antioxidant agent is α-Copaene. Limitations: This study is limited to the identification of potential antioxidant activity of the main compound. Contribution: This study is potential to be used in the field of herbal medicine and other fields related to traditional medicinal plants. Keywords: antioxidant, nutgrass rhizomes extract, GCMS
