PEMBUATAN DAN KARAKTERISASI EKSTRAK AIR HERBA MENIRAN (Phyllanthus niruri Linn)
Keywords:Percolation, Characterization Aquaeous extract, Meniran
Extraction by percolation method of meniran herb and its characterization has been done. The extraction was carried out by using boiled distilled
water and the resulting percolate was concentrated by using rotary evaporator until the remainni g volume was equivalent to theweight of meniran
herbs extracted. The aquaeous extract of meniran herbs was further studied for its characters in terms of non specific, specific and chemical content.
It was found that the extract has values of 93.80% ± 4.27 % for loss on drying, 4.78% ± 0.27% for residu of ignition, 0.71% ± 0.18% for insoluble
acid ash value and 1.07 for specific gravity parameters. Theinthlayer chromatogram pattern save three spots in which one of them indicated the
presence of quercetin since it has the same Rf value (0.30) to the standard solution of quercetin applied.
