Abstract

The red betel leaves has tannin active compound. Biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles was utilized tannin compound that could change metal ion to atom. Modification of  pickle goat leather was modificated by using silver nanoparticle and methyltrimethoxysilane (MTMS). The objective of this study was to determine the characteristic of goat pickle leather include antifungal activity and mechanical properties. The test for antifungal activity against Candida albicans ANCC 0048 was conducted by diffusion method. For the statistical testing, samples were analysis by using the ANOVA and LSD test. For the mechanical properties test, the samples were measured by a tensile strength tester. The result of antifungal activity showed that there was a significant difference between the interaction of time incubation and sample variation. Leather after composited with nanoparticle showed the highest antifungal activity against Candida albicans ANCC 0048 and the biggest in toughness. The result of mechanical properties showed that Leather - NAg was hard and tough with tensile strength of 9.32 MPa and elongation at break  of  33.47%. However, leather after composited with MTMS and silver nanoparticle has the lowest antifungal activity but the highest modulus Young
