The optimal conditions for the extraction of lignans from flaxseed were determined. A second-order regression for rotation-orthogonal composite design was used to investigate the effects of three independent variables, namely ethanol concentration (%), extraction temperature (degrees C, and extraction time (h) on the response, the acquired ratio of lignans. The independent variables were coded at five levels and their actual values selected on the basis of results of single-factor experiment. The second-order regression for rotation-orthogonal composite design consisted of 23 experimental points and 9 replications at the central point. Data were analyzed using MATLAB software. The results indicated that acquired ratio of lignans might be beyond 8% at a probability of 95% in the range of ethanol concentration: 56.6-83.4%, extraction time: 26.7-27.9 h, extraction temperature: 38.7-40.1 degrees C. And the optimal extraction conditions were ethanol concentration of 70%, extraction time of 28h and extraction temperature of 40 degrees C according to the analysis of response surface. In this condition, the experimental acquired ratio of lignans was 8.975% (w/w; lignans/defatted flaxseed powder), which is close to the predicted value (9.316%).


Optimization and Comparison of High-Pressure-Assisted Extraction of Phenolic Compounds from Olive Pomace
Okur, İlhami; Öztop, Halil Mecit; Alpas, Hami (2022-12-16)
In this study, it was aimed to find the optimum condition for extraction of phenolic compounds from olive pomace by using high-pressure-assisted extraction (HPAE). In this method, different pressure parameters (300-500 MPa), times (5-15 min), and ethanol concentrations (50-90% v/v) were used. According to Box-Behnken design, 15 experimental runs were performed to find the optimum condition of total phenolic and oleuropein contents. Also, the optimum HPAE condition was compared with that of classical solvent...
Investigation of extraction methodologies for quantitative determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in sediments
Topal, Tansel; Tuncel, Semra G.; Department of Chemistry (2011)
The extraction procedures for the determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) concentrations in sediment samples had been developed by using GC-FID and GC-MS. The optimized methods were soxhlet extraction, ultrasonic bath extraction and solid phase micro extraction (SPME). In order to search out the main factors affecting extraction efficiencies of the methods, factorial design was used. The best extraction method was chosen and optimum values for main factors were selected for the development o...
Optimising clarification of carrot juice by bacterial crude pectinase
Uzuner, Sibel; Çekmecelioğlu, Deniz (2015-12-01)
This study was undertaken to search for potential use of crude bacterial pectinase enzyme produced from Bacillus subtilis grown on hazelnut shell hydrolysate in clarification of carrot juice and to optimize the enzyme load, pH and time using the Box-Behnken response surface methodology (RSM). The carrot juice was treated with the crude pectinase enzyme (5.60 U mL(-1)) at different concentrations (0.1-0.5%), pH (4-7), and time (2-6 h). The obtained enzyme was also compared with commercial fungal pectinase at...

The main scope of this dissertation was to investigate the effects of High Hydrostatic Pressure-Assisted Extraction (HHPE) on phenolic compounds from different food wastes. The other aim of this study was to compare HHPE with conventional solvent extraction (CSE). At this study, three different food wastes namely spent coffee ground (SCG), olive leaves and olive pomace were used. In the first part of the study, the effect of HHPE on the spent coffee ground was examined. Three different pressure levels (300...
Optimization of supercritical CO2 extraction of Thymbra spicata oil
Sonsuzer, S; Şahin, Serpil; Yılmaz, Levent (Elsevier BV, 2004-07-01)
The supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) of aroma compounds from Thymbra spicata was studied. Response surface methodology (RSM) was used to optimize the parameters of the supercritical fluid extraction. Independent variables were temperature (40, 50 and 60 degreesC), pressure (80, 100 and 120 bar) and time (30, 60 and 90 min). Dependent variables were yield, monoterpene, sesquiterpene and oxygenated monoterpene contents.
