Synthesis of ricinoleic acid-based phenolipid compound has been carried out by lipophilization of gallic acid with ricinoleic acid. Before lipophilization was carried out, ricinoleic acid was methylated first. The resulting methyl ricinoleic was then reacted with gallic acid using ZnCl2 as a catalyst at 70-80 RC for 6 hours in a reflux system. The synthesized product was characterized using Thin Layer Chromatography with a mixture of chloroform: methanol (93:7) used as the eluent. The phenolipid reaction product showed a higher Rf value (0.84) compared to the Rf value of methyl ricinoleic (0.76) or ricinoleic acid (0.58). Characterization of the synthesized product using FT-IR showed a new strong absorption band at wave number 758.06 cm-1 which indicated the presence of an aromatic C-H group (bend). It indicated that the phenolipid was produced. Antioxidant activity test of phenolipid compound using DPPH method showed the inhibition percentage value of 33% at the concentration of 2 mM. This value is lower than the inhibition percentage value of BHT (89.6%) used as control. The emulsifier test of the synthesized phenolipid compound showed good emulsion stability up to 24 hours observation, with water in oil (W/O) type of emulsion formed. The phenolipid compound showed medium antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus epidermidis and Propionibacterium acnes, which produced an inhibition zone up to 18 mm using the paper disc method. Still, it did not show antifungal activity against Candida albicans.
