Alternative Solvents for Natural Products Extraction by Farid Chemat, Maryline Abert Vian

By Farid Chemat, Maryline Abert Vian

This publication offers an entire photo of the present cutting-edge in replacement and eco-friendly solvents used for laboratory and commercial typical product extraction by way of the newest options, unique equipment and secure items. It presents the required theoretical historical past and information on extraction, thoughts, mechanisms, protocols, business functions, defense precautions and environmental affects. This booklet is geared toward execs from undefined, academicians engaged in extraction engineering or ordinary product chemistry study, and graduate point scholars. the person chapters supplement each other, have been written via revered foreign researchers and famous pros from the undefined, and deal with the newest efforts within the box. it's also the 1st sourcebook to target the swift advancements during this field.

The Politics of Air Pollution: Urban Growth, Ecological Modernization, and Symbolic Inclusion

Who has been on the political leading edge of unpolluted air coverage improvement within the usa? within the Politics of pollution, George A. Gonzalez argues that the answer's neither the government, nor environmental teams, yet relatively in the neighborhood orientated fiscal elites along with nation and native governments.

Green Composites: Polymer Composites and the Environment

There's an expanding circulation of scientists and engineers who're devoted to minimising the environmental effect of polymer composite creation. lifestyles cycle overview is of paramount value at each level of a product’s lifestyles, from preliminary synthesis via to ultimate disposal and a sustainable society wishes environmentally secure fabrics and processing equipment.

Sample text

In some cases, the initial water contained in the solid particles can act as a cosolvent and improve the extraction efficiency of certain polar compounds. • Milling: The main purpose of the milling step is the reduction of the solid particle sizes to enlarge the interfacial solid-fluid mass transfer area. Furthermore, the milling process may also cause the destruction of some plant cellular structures and, consequently, facilitate solvent access to the solute. Nonetheless, reducing the particle size also increases the degree of compaction of the solid substrate.

The extracts are collected from the vacuum tank. 32 M. Abert Vian et al. Fig. 4 Schematic diagram of the instantaneous controlled pressure-drop Fig. 2 Instant controlled pressure drop applications Material Analytes Ref. 2). Benamor et al. [14] have studied extraction of anthocyanins from Roselle calyces using DIC. This work has demonstrated that DIC increases kinetics and extraction yield of these compounds. The same authors have also noticed the impact of DIC treatment on the oligosaccharides (stachyose and ciceritol) extraction from the seeds 2 Solvent-Free Extraction: Myth or Reality?

This solvent ranking is presented in Fig. 10 for the solubilisation of the mixtures of fatty acid methyl esters considered. The logarithm of solubility in mole fractions is calculated, and the logarithm of best solubility is set to 0, all other solvents being given relative to the best solvent. In the present case, n-hexane is the best solvent, and the “green” substitutes cannot be distinguished, they are all set at log (x) D 0. For comparison purposes, the relative solubilities in water (worse solvent) and in glycerol and glycerol carbonate (poor solvents) are also given.
