The aims of this study were to examine toxicity, antioxidant and antibacterial activity of methanol extract of fruit husk (Xylocarpus moluccensis). Toxicity assay was undertaken by brine shrimp lethal toxicity test, antioxidant activity was done by Diphenyl picryl hydrazil (DPPH) scavenging, and inhibition growth to Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli used as antimicrobial test. The results showed that methanol extract of fruit husk was not toxic, antiradical efficiency was 0.000154, and broad spectrum antibacterial with inhibition zone to Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli was 12.7±1.2 and 11.9±0.9 mm, respectively in 630000 ppm concentration.
Key words : Cytotoxicity, antioxidant, antibacterial, methanol extract, fruit husk, Xylocarpus moluccensis
