The ethanol extract of Abelmoschus Manihot L. has a compound of flavonoid glycosides having the potential as a source of antioxidants, but the bioavailability of these antioxidants tends to be low on form of large molecular size. The aim of this study was to obtain the process conditions, which is able to produce nano emulsion and has the best antioxidant characteristics, as well as to obtain the indicators of the stability of the nano emulsion.
