The synthesis of Cr(III)-Aspartate and Cu(II)-Aspartate complexes has been successfully conducted by reacting CrCl3·6H2O and CuCl2·2H2O metals with aspartic acid. Therefore, this study aimed to synthesize Cr(Asp)2Cl2 and Cu(Asp)Cl2 as well as test their antidiabetic effects. The synthesis results of Cr(Asp)2Cl2 and Cu(Asp)Cl2 in the form of light purple and blue solids were 0.3001 g and 0.3095 g with a yield of 95.14% and 95.02%, respectively. Furthermore, the antidiabetic test used 27 male mice (Mus musculus) with nine treatments for 21 days. The data obtained were analyzed statistically using analysis of variance, and the antidiabetic activity was expressed in percent glucose lowering. The result showed a decrease in blood glucose levels in mice after alloxan induction, with percent glucose lowering (%GL) values of 74.1874% for Cr(Asp)2Cl2 and 76.1337% for Cu(Asp)Cl2 compounds. Therefore, the Cr(Asp)2Cl2 and Cu(Asp)Cl2 compounds can be used as antidiabetic in mice which are also potentially used as metal-based drugs for the treatment of Diabetes mellitus (DM).
