Antioxidant extracted from soursop leaves with solvent extraction and stirring methods. Ethanol, ethyl acetate, and n-hexane use as a solvent. Extraction temperature varied of 35 °, 45 °, 55 ° C. The highest yield obtained was 20.2 % from the ethanol extraction at a temperature of 55 °C. Test result of antioxidant activity using DPPH method indicates that the ethyl acetate fraction has the highest activity with% RSA 81.10 followed by ethanol and n-hexane fraction of 69.64% and 27.60%. GCMS analysis indicated that the ethyl acetate fraction has the most antioxidant compounds with 11 compounds followed by ethanol fraction and n-hexane which has 9 and 4 antioxidant compounds with the highest content is the tocopherol group.

CV. Amna Lab Aromaterapi Small and Medium Enterprises have started the citronella oil business in 2018. Some of its products such as soap, aromatherapy spray, propolis, and body oil have arrived in several big cities in Indonesia. However, since the Covid-19 pandemic, these SMEs have experienced difficulties, especially regarding the large capital costs and the price of citronella which has fallen drastically to 100% of the original price. Under these conditions, SMEs are constrained in the process of increasing productivity and lack production technology as well as marketing and management. The Community Service Team of the ATI Padang Polytechnic offers solutions to overcome these problems by providing alternative processing of citronella oil-based products to be aromatherapy candles and educating the SMEs on the product marketing strategies through e-commerce applications. The community service team tried resolving the delinquent by determining the amount of citronella oil that should be included and the composition variations of stearic acid, vegetable oil, and paraffin. The variations were tested in order to find the right comparison in making aromatherapy candles based on citronella oil. The team also searched and studied several references to analyze marketing strategies in accordance with SMEs CV. Amana Aromatherapy Lab. Considering the result of the experiments, it was identified that 1% of citronella oil could be added to the wax mixture while the exact composition of oil and paraffin was 1: 2. The stearic acid was unsuitable to applied since the candle product easily melted. E-commerce marketing strategies were used by utilizing advertisements on internet searches to expand the promotions.

The use of palm oil mill fly ash (FA) as a low-cost adsorbent is one of the solutions for handling FA waste. In this study, the addition of dolomite is expected to improve the adsorbent performance. The aim of this study was to investigate the optimum FA-dolomite adsorbent composition and operating conditions for methylene blue adsorption. Different parameters were studied to optimize adsorption process such as the amount of dolomite, methylene blue flow rate, bed height and number of trays. FA-dolomite was converted into nano-adsorbent by sol-gel method which was coated on zeolite surface. Nano-adsorbents were characterized by XRF, FTIR, XRD and SEM. The adsorption capacity was tested by Spectrophotometer UV-Vis. XRF characterization showed that FA had the highest SiO2 content of 58.15%, while dolomite contained CaO of 52.72%. FTIR characterization detected the groups of Si-O-Si, Si-O-Al, Ca-O and Si-O. XRD characterization showed the average crystalline size of FA-dolomite 2% adsorbent was 28.56 nm and SEM characterization showed fine pores on the adsorbent surface. The highest adsorption efficiency obtained at FA-dolomite 2% was 97.364% and the lowest obtained at FA-dolomite 8% was 13.16% with a flow rate of 500 ml/h, adsorbent height of 9 cm and 3 trays. The greater the amount of dolomite added, the absorption efficiency decreases.

The partners involved in this PKM activity are farming communities in Nagari Matur Mudik, Nagari Lawang and Nagari Tigo Balai Kec. Thanks, Kab. Agam is located to the north of Padang City, West Sumatra Province, which is ± 94 km from the Padang ATI Polytechnic Campus. Most of the people of Nagari Matur Mudik, Kec. Thanks, Kab. Agam has a livelihood as a farmer. The Community Partnership Program aims to increase the economic value of agricultural commodities in Nagari Matur Mudik, Nagari Lawang and Nagari Tigo Balai, Matur District, Agam Regency. Sales of agricultural raw materials are considered to be still constrained in the distribution/sales process which is only limited to traditional markets. Efforts are being made through the processing of agricultural raw materials into delicious and nutritious products, as well as having competent selling points in the market. The methods used in this program are counseling and training methods. This program works with the PKK team and the farming community as partners in the center for processing agricultural products into food products for the trading community. The flow of activities includes the preparatory stage in the form of observations to related offices/agencies. Then the implementation stage, namely counseling and training for the community in Matur District, which is centered at the Nagari Matur Mudik Village office, Nagari Lawang and Nagari Tigo Balai. With direct participation by the community, it is hoped that new and creative ideas will emerge by the community in processing agricultural products so that this program can be sustainable as a concrete effort to continue to improve the economy of the local community.
