Advanced method of secondary metabolite extraction and quality analysis
KM Roopashree and Dhananjay Naik
Plant had been used as medicine in ancient. Now day’s Pharmaceutical companies start processing of medicinal and aromatic plants in their formulation by using extraction of active components. Extraction of plant components likes volatile, Essential or ethereal oils and mixtures composed of volatile liquid and solid compounds depend upon their composition and their boiling point. Now days there are several processes like distillation, enfleurage, maceration, expression, solvent extraction and fluid extraction are available for extraction of plant component and different kinds of laboratory facilities are needed for the extraction and qualiâ€‘quantitative analysis. Recent extraction technology such as Accelerated Solvent Extraction or Microwave Assisted Extraction in combination with hyphenated techniques such as Gas Chromathographyâ€‘Mass Spectrometry (GCâ€‘MS) and Liquid Chromatographyâ€‘Mass Spectrometry (LCâ€‘MS) represent a modern approach to perform fast and reproducible analytical methods for the quality control of secondary metabolite production from plant material.
