Supercritical extraction with carbon dioxide and co-solvent from Leptocarpha rivularis
Publication date: Available online 24 June 2019Source: Journal of Applied Research on Medicinal and Aromatic PlantsAuthor(s): Edgar L. Uquiche, María T. Toro, Roberto A. QuevedoAbstractThe aim of this work was to investigate the effect of temperature (40―60 °C), pressure (10―20 MPa) and co-solvent concentration (0―2 wt.%) on extraction yield from L. rivularis leaves using ethanol-modified supercritical carbon dioxide. Extraction assays were carried out in a Process Development Unit using a Box-Behnken design. Extraction yield ranged from 14.7 to 53.1 g/kg dry substrate, with the...
