Microwave Extraction of Ginger Capsaicin
People can extract substances by microwave radiation. The electromagnetic field generated by microwaves accelerates the diffusion rate of the extracted component to the extractant, which increases the extraction rate by several times.
There is a experimental results show that: the size of 80 mesh, microwave power 250W, solid-liquid ratio 1:12.5 (g/ml), extraction time 180s, the condition of the ginger capsaicin yield is 0.776%.
Microwave extraction of ginger capsaicin time is very short, generally only a few minutes.
Microwave-assisted extraction has the advantages of short extraction time, high yield, low energy consumption and less solvent dosage, which makes it widely used in various fields.
