Abstract

The microwave- assisted extraction (MAE) system is an efficient technique under the optimal condition in the extraction of bioactive chemical compounds E- and Z- guggolsterone, cinnamaldehyde and tannin from the plants has been investigated. The results show that, this method provides a fast and easy procedure for the extraction compared to the conventional extraction techniques.

 

Key words: Microwave- assisted extraction, plant, E- and Z- guggulsterone, tannin, cinnamaldehyde
