Abstract

The effect of particle size of fresh turmeric and simplicia toward content of curcumin compounds has been carried out. The purpose of this research is to analyze the content of curcumin compounds based on the particle size of the fresh turmeric and simplicia using ethanol and water solvents. Extraction of curcumin in fresh turmeric and simplicia yield was carried out by maceration method of electrosynthetic coupling in etanol and water solvent using the infundation method, at particle sizes of 20, 80 and 140 mesh. The content of curcumin compound was analyzed as quantitatively using spectrophotometry visible at 475 nm, the linier regression is Y = 6.428x - 4.424 and R2 = 0.7594. The highest content of curcumin compound was found in the fresh turmeric and simplicia using ethanol solvent at 140 mesh particle size respectively, are 5.6 and 4.2 ppm. In water solvents, the concentration of curcumin from fresh turmeric and simplicia were 1.3 and 0.6 ppm, respectively.
