Extraction of Oil from Jatropha Seeds
Solid liquid extraction technique was applied for the extraction of oil from jatropha seeds．The optimum conditions for the lab scale solid liquid extraction were obtained at temperature at 40°C, extraction time of 4 h, ratio of liquid to solid of 8/1 (v/m) and n-hexane as a solvent. Under the optical conditions, the yield of Jatropha seeds oil was up to 31.42%.
