In this study, we examined the constituents of Millettia laurentii that positively affect human health using pyrolysis-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (Py-GC-MS), thermal desorption system-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (TDS-GC-MS), and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The composition of the plant’s chemicals with known benefits to human health functions was studied by reviewing the literature. Cedrane, 8-propoxy- can alleviate cough, jaundice, and can prevent flu. Hexadecanoic acid, methyl ester has a certain anti-leukemia effect. 9-Octadecenamide, (Z)- can act as an expectorant, stomachic, diuretic, and adjust blood pressure. 2-Methoxy-4-vinylphenol has the effect of clearing heat, and detoxifying and moistening the intestines.
