Abstract
Cashew is a plant that has antioxidant benefits. Extraction by hot method is more perfect and the extraction process is faster than cold extraction. This study aims to compare the antioxidant activity of cashew leaf extract obtained by means of soxhletation and reflux. This research is an experimental method by measuring the percentage of attenuation on DPPH and IC50 of cashew leaf extracts extracted by soxhletation and reflux methods. The result of this research is that the antioxidant activity of soxhletation cashew leaf extract is 9.08 ppm and reflux is 9.56 ppm. It was concluded that the antioxidant activity of soxhletation cashew leaf extract was greater than that of reflux cashew leaf extract.
