The aim of this study is to extract buni fruit using ethanol solvents. The ethanol extract was characterized by using UV-Vis and Infraredspectroscopy. The extraction is done by maceration method, which is by soaking buni fruit for 24 hours using ethanol solvent. The measurements using UV-Vis spectroscopy were carried out in wavelength between 200 nm -700 nm. The UV-Vis characterization of the ethanol extract showed two band at the maximum wavelength 279 nm and 548 nm. Infrared Spectroscopy characterization showed a C-H bondas aromatic functional group at 1058,96 cm-1, C-O bond at 1230,63 cm-1, C=O bond at 1732,13 cm-1, OH functional group at 1425,44 and 3419,90 cm-1. Based on the result of UV-Vis and Infrared spectroscopy characterization can be concluded that the ethanol extract of buni fruit containing flavonoid compounds.
