Abstract



Toxicity test and phytochemical screening of ant plant ethanol extract were done. The toxicity test was done by employing the Brine Shrimp
Lethality Test (BSLT) method. Sample of ant plant taken from the Aceh Besar forest have been extracted with ethanol. The sample was then
concentrated using a rotary evaporator until a crude extract was obtained. The extract was tested by toxicity to larva Artemia salina L. The
toxicity test for larvae Artemia salina Leach have been done by employing the Brine Shrimp Lethality Test (BSLT) method at four concentration
levels, i.e: 250 ppm, 125 ppm, 50 ppm, and 25 ppm. The result of the research showed that ethanol extract of ant plant Aceh had acute toxicity
by LC
value 61.11 ppm. The extract had identified were fenolik, saponin, steroid and terpenoid.
