The kind of research laboratory this is a observation to technique quantitative analysis. Technique the sample collection in purposive sampling as many as 5 samples. Next sample each in destructor dry then examined in of the spectrophotometer Uv-visible at wavelengths 463,9 nm. Based on research results obtained levels of iodine on seaweed (seaweed ) are 1.72 µg/g, 1.92 µg/g, 1.73 µg/g, 1.94 µg/g, and 1.89 µg/g it shows that seaweed has any iodine high.
