Parmelia sulcata is the largest lichen fungus family consisting of around 2,700 species spread across 80 countries. This study aims to determine whether Parmelia sulcata has potential as a natural dye to be applied to natural fiber fabrics. The method used is Phytochemical analysis and GC-MS testing, where from the Phytochemical and GC-MS results there are various compounds, therefore researchers want to provide laboratory test data for chemical content in Parmelia sulcata species. The results of the phytochemical tests and GC-MS were as follows 3,5-Dihydroxytoluene 33.77%- 2-[3^ Hydroxypropyl]-1,4-Benzenediol 3,32%- 1,3-Benzenediol, 2-Methyl 3.75%- Beta Resorcylic Acid, 6-Methyl, Methyl Ester 1.43%- Beta Resorcylic Acid, 6-Methyl, Methyl Ester 8.56%- 3-Cyclohexene-1-Methanol,6-1(1-Hydroxycyclopentyl)-, Cis 1.91%- Beta Resorcylic Acid, 6-Methyl, Methyl Ester 37.15%- Acetonitrile, 9h-Pyrolo[1,2-A] Indole-9-Ylidene 1.00%- Fluoranthene-2-Carboxaldehyde 3.62%, this shows that Parmelia sulcata is not good potential to be used as a natural dye.
