Résumé

Curcuminoid is the main compound found in the Curcuma xantorrhiza rhizome. C. xantorrhiza plant which in
Indonesia is known as temulawak is an herbal plant that is traditionally used to cure hepatitis, increase stamina, and
as an anti-cholesterol. To enhance the stability, solubility and activity of the curcuminoid, should be developed into
a product nanoparticle. The purpose of this study was to characterize nanocurcuminoids from ethanol extracts from
the C. xantorrhiza rhizome loaded by chitosan and alginic acid, and its antioxidant activity test. The
nanocurcuminoid formulation method uses ionic gelation. Chitosan nanocurcuminoid is made by mixing
curcuminoid solution and chitosan solution, then adding sodium tripolyphosphate (Na-TPP). Meanwhile, alginic
nanocurcuminoids are made by mixing a solution of curcuminoids and alginic acid solutions, which are then added
to calcium ions.
