In the present study, we explore the use of papaya leaves ethanol extract as an antibacterial using bioautography method. Bioautography of papaya leaf ethanol extract against Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli and Bacillus subtillis with n-butanol, acetic acid, distilled water with the ratio 4: 1: 5 yielded the dissolved compound of tannin. Furthermore, the tannins contained in papaya leaves has moderate antibacterial properties.
