The rhizomes of Curcuma amada (Zingiberaceae), locally recognized as Temu Mangga (Mango Ginger), are usually consumed as herbal medicine since they show antibacterial anticancer antihyperglycemic, and antitubercular activities. Many reports were also explored for its terpenoid contents, but the information of phenolic compounds from C. amada is still limited. This research aims to isolate phenolic compounds from the ethanol extract of C. amada rhizomes grown in Bogor, Indonesia. C. amada rhizomes were macerated in ethanol to give brownish-black crude extract (5.084%, w/w). The crude extract then was fractionated and purified using a sequence of chromatographic techniques to afford two isolated fractions, C1 and F1. According to UV-Vis, FTIR, and LC-MS spectral data, the C1 and F1 fractions were identified as curcumin and naringenin, respectively.
