Microwave-Assisted Extraction of Garlic Essential Oil from Garlic
Factors affecting microwave-assisted extraction of garlic essential oil from garlic were investigated experimentally. Suitable conditions for such extraction process were studied by single factor approach to improve the product yield. The product yield under the resultant suitable conditions can reach to 0.478% based on raw garlic cloves. The product yield for microwave-assisted extraction method is as 2.5 times as that for conventional solvent extraction approach.
