Extraction of β-Sitosterol from Jatropha Seed Oil

Abstract:

Article Preview

Solvent extraction technique was applied for the extraction of β-Sitosterol from jatropha seed oil.The optimum conditions for the lab scale extraction were obtained at 30ml solvent, 0.05g magnesium power, ratio of hydrochloric acid to zinc chloride of 1/1.75 (ml/g) and tetrahydrofuran as a solvent. Under the optical conditions, the yield of β-sitosterol was up to 3.27mg/g.
