Abstract: Statistical simplex-centroid design mixtures of water, acetone, acetonitrile, ethanol was used to extract Nephrolepis biserrata (Schott.) SW. frond (NBF) using temperature controlled microwave extraction system (TCMES). The effects of different solvents and their mixtures on its antioxidant properties were studied. The result shows, the quality of extracted material is found to depend on the solvent proportions according to special cubic model of TPC, TFC and IC50. The binary and quaternary solvents are found to explain the superior extraction results as compared to single solvent for TPC, TFC and IC50.
Keywords: Mixture Design, Nephrolepis Biserrata (Schott.) Sw, TPC, TFC, IC50.
Scope of the Article: Microwave Filter
