You can use code like

 public void HideRibbonItem()
 {
      //if this is a System.Web.UI.Page
      SPRibbon ribbon = SPRibbon.GetCurrent(this);
      ribbon.TrimById("Ribbon.ListItem.New.NewFolder");
     
}

You can create your own web part to do this. Alternatively you can use CSS to hide items in the ribbon

Hi,
Not have idea why it's not working with ListItem.New.NewFolder.
But you can redefine NewFolder button, just use this CustomAction:
  <CustomAction Id="RemoveNewFolder" RegistrationId="100" Location="CommandUI.Ribbon"
                   RegistrationType="List">
    <CommandUIExtension>
      <CommandUIDefinitions>
        <CommandUIDefinition Location="Ribbon.ListItem.New.NewFolder" />
      </CommandUIDefinitions>
    </CommandUIExtension>
  </CustomAction>

Hi,
You wrote "Ribbon.ListItem.New.NewFolder" and I thought - you want disable button for listItem.

In this code you dont create button, just redefine NewFolder button for Document library by empty code:
 
  <CustomAction Id="RemoveNewFolder" RegistrationId="0x01" Location="CommandUI.Ribbon"
                   RegistrationType="ContentType">
    <CommandUIExtension>
      <CommandUIDefinitions>
        <CommandUIDefinition Location="Ribbon.Documents.New.NewFolder" />
      </CommandUIDefinitions>
    </CommandUIExtension>
  </CustomAction>
