Abstract. One of the natural problems on weighted composition operators $uC_\varphi $ is to determine the condition of $u$ and $\varphi $ for an operator $uC_\varphi $ to map bounded sets into sequentially compact sets, that is, for $uC_\varphi $ to become compact. In this paper, we shall characterize compact weighted composition operators on the domain of a closed $*$-derivation in $C(K)$ which is a generalization of spaces of differentiable functions.
