Article Preview

Camellia oil is the main component of the camellia seed and has many beneficial functions to human health. An investigation into ultrasound- assisted extraction was conducted for the oil extraction from camellia seed. The optimized condition of extraction parameters obtained with the response surface methodology (RSM) at a four-variable, three-level experiment Box–Behnken design (BBD), was as follows: liquid-solid ratio, 5mL/g;ultrasonic power,155W;ultrasonic treatment time,31 min; and ultrasonic treatment temperature, 55°C, under these conditions, the oil yeild was 44.55%. GC–MS analysis showed that the content of unsaturated fatty acid in camellia oil was up to 84.47% and the content of oleic acid was over 76.15%.
