The aims of this research is to determine mucolytic activity of methanol extract of silver fern (P. calomelanos). In this research extraction was carried out by maceration method. Qualitative test was done by ferric chloride reagent and Shinoda test to identify the existance of phenolic and flavonoid compounds, respectively. Mucolytic activity assay was performed in vitro based on the decreasing the viscosity of intestinal mucus cow. Viscosity values were analyzed statistically using one-way ANOVA test, followed by LSD test to determine significant differences between treatment groups. From the results of the study, it had been obtained the methanol extract in the form of brown solid. The qualitative test of the extract with the ferric chloride reagent produced a green color which showed the existence of phenolic compound, while the orange color in the Shinoda Test showed the existence of flavonoid compound. The result of mucolytic activity test showed that the extract had mucolytic activity. Extract with a concentration of 0.6% had mucolytic activity equivalent to acetylcysteine 0.1%.
