Abstract: The Magnolia coco flower which is widely used in traditional medicine and aromatic spa has been extracted. The extraction used solvent of methanol, ethyl acetate, and n-hexane to analyze its antioxidant activity. The research revealed that DPPH free radical scavenging activity of Magnolia coco extract varied widely increased with increase of concentration level. The Magnolia coco flowers which extracted methanolic had the highest antioxidant activity was 4,138 µg/mL. On the other hand, ethyl acetate and n-hexan extract had no antioxidant activity.
