The influences of plasticizer on the biodegradability of bioplastic film synthesized from starch obtained from jackfruit seeds with a help of Acetobacter xylinum were investigated. In this study, 1,4butanediol and polyethylene glycol (PEG) 1000 were used as plasticizer. The biodegradation behavior of the resulted bioplastic films was characterized by calculating changes in their mass loss and rate of mass loss. The Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy was also conducted to analyze
more » ... r functional group. The results shows that all the bioplastic films were well biodegradated, where PEG 1000 with concentration of 0,5% and 1,0% can successfully improve the biodegradability of bioplastic film. Meanwhile, the used of 1,4-butanediol with concentration of 0,5% and 1,0% can increase and decrease the biodegradability of sample, respectively.
