Coagulants in water treatment sense is a chemical that will remove color and turbidity in a raw water in the form of flocs. The use of inorganic coagulants and synthetic polymers in coagulation and flocculation process at water treatment plant was found to be harmful to environment and health issue concern. Thus, Luis G Torres came out with research studies of using plant-based biopolymer in water treatment process as a green approach for a sustainable future. The aim of this project is to characterize biopolymer from seed of Annona Diversifolia (AD). By using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectrometer, the characterization of active functional group of biopolymer is determined which is Amine and Carboxyl group. The zero potential charge (
