Abstract

Liquid residue is a by-product of distillation, where the main product is essential oil. Residue is the waste that remains after the distillation process in certain chemical processes. Depending on its potential value, the residue can be reused if further processing is done to convert it into a more profitable product. To determine the potential of the liquid residue, phytochemical analysis, antioxidant activity assays, and antimicrobial assays were conducted on the liquid residue obtained from the Litsea elliptica plant. This research includes distillation, qualitative phytochemical analysis, antioxidant, and antimicrobial assays. The antioxidant assay was carried out using the DPPH method. The microorganisms used in the antimicrobial assay were Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans. Qualitative phytochemical analysis showed the presence of several active compounds in Litsea elliptica liquid residue. This indicates the presence of antioxidant activity, with a free radical inhibition rate of 75.91%. In addition, the antimicrobial test showed its inhibitory effect on the growth of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. It is important to note that this study provides valuable insights into the potential uses and properties of the liquid residue from Litsea elliptica. Further research is recommended to explore and maximize the benefits of this liquid residue.
