Ethanol extraction of polyphenols in an immersion extractor. Effect of pulsing flow
- 113 Downloads
A comparative study on polyphenol extraction from sunflower press cake in a semicontinuous pulsed-flow immersion extractor and in a conventional laboratory immersion extractor was developed. The solvent was 96% (vol/vol) ethanol. No difference in the residual polyphenol content in the cake was observed at short times, but after 10 h, the pulsed extractor showed a higher polyphenol concentration in the outlet miscella. In addition, the effective diffusivity of polyphenols in sunflower press cake was estimated.
