Quality of compound content in the plant could be influenced by
many factor, it could be the origin of the plant, the body part of the
plant being tested, and the character of the extract. Erythrina
lithosperma Miq locally known as dadap serep, is a plant that
commonly spread in the area Pekalongan. The purpose of this
research is to identify the character of simplicia and extract from
dadap serep. Characterization using the standardization procedure
extract issued by Indonesia National Agency of Drug and Food
Control (BPOM). Characterization was performed on simplicia and
ethanol 96% extract of leaves. Characterization of simplicia include
organoleptis, drying shrinkage, water soluble extract, and soluble
ethanol content. Characterization of ethanol extracts include nonspecific
characteristics i.e. moisture content, total ash content, and
acid soluble ash content. The result of characterization is obtained
appropriate with specification by the range value of each type of
simplicia parameter and ethanol extract of leaves dadap serep
obtained from Pekalongan area.
