Flavonoids, saponins, xanthoproteins, triterpenoids, and tannins are among the secondary metabolites found in Morning Glory (Ipomoea carnea Jacq.) leaves. I. carnea has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, analgesic, and anti-cancer activities. To obtain optimum results, these secondary metabolites can be extracted using suitable solvents. The method, solvent, temperature, and extraction time are all factors that influence the extraction process, and these all have an impact on the yield amount and extract quality. The objective of this study was to investigate the most effective solvent and soxhletation time for the total flavonoid content of I. carnea leaves extract. This was a quantitative study that used a pre-experimental design. Time and soxhletation solvent were examined as independent variables on total flavonoid levels. Methanol, ethyl acetate, and n-hexane were utilized as solvents, and the soxhletation times were 1, 3, and 5 hours. The highest total flavonoid level obtained was 5.12 ± 0.06%, using methanol Soxhletation at 5 hours
