Abstract—The present study was undertaken to find the antioxidant value of certain medicinal plants in South Kalimantan in Indonesian. Antioxidants have been reported to prevent oxidative damage caused by free radical and can be used in cardiovascular and antiinflammatory diseases. The amount of total flavanoids and radical scavenging activity has been studied. Major amount of flavonoid were determined in kasturi fruit followed by leaf of kelakai, stem of gerunggang, and root pasak bumi. However, kelakai, kasturi, pasak bumi, and gerunggang extracts potent of antioxidant by chelating effect on ferrous ions, hydroxyl radical scavenging, and hydrogen peroxide scavenging.

Index Terms—Indonesian medicinal plant, total flavonoid,antioxidant activity
