The film forming solutions composed of tapioca (cassava) starch (1-3 g), glycerol (0.5-1.0 ml), agar (0.5-1.0 g) and span 80 (0.1-0.5 ml) were prepared according to a three-level, four-factor Box-Behnken response surface experimental design. The films were obtained by casting method and they are homogenous and transparent. The influence of film composition(More)
The present study is to evaluate and compare the prediction and simulating efficiencies of response surface methodology (RSM) and artificial neural network (ANN) based models on fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) yield achieved from muskmelon oil (MMO) under ultrasonication by two step in situ process. In first in situ process, free fatty acid content of MMO(More)
Ultrasound assisted extraction of pectin from waste pomegranate peel was investigated and optimized using Box-Behnken response surface design coupled with numerical optimization technique. The individual and interactive effect of process variables (solid-liquid ratio, pH, extraction time and temperature) on the pectin yield was studied. The experimental(More)
In this study, ultrasound-assisted extraction technology was employed to investigate and optimize the crude polysaccharide extraction from Nephelium lappaceum L. fruit peel using three levels, four factors (LS ratio, ultrasonic power, extraction temperature and extraction time) Box-Behnken response surface design. The results showed that highest(More)
Degradation of cassava (tapioca) starch based composite films during indoor soil burial experiments was analyzed using five factors, three levels Box-Behnken response surface design. From the results, it was observed that, increased water sorption promotes the entry of soil microorganism and it utilizes the starch films as a source of energy for their(More)
This present study investigates the extraction characteristics and optimal parameters of the microwave-assisted extraction of pectin from waste mango peel (WMP). Microwave power, pH, time and solid-liquid ratio were selected as the extraction parameters and was studied by using Box-Behnken response surface design. The experimental data was analyzed by least(More)
Supercritical carbon dioxide extraction (SC-CO2) of total anthocyanin and phenolic compounds from jamun fruits was investigated using three factors at three levels Box-Behnken response surface design. Experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of three independent variables (pressure, temperature and co-solvent flow rate) on the maximum extraction(More)
In this study, microwave-assisted extraction (MAE) of polysaccharides from mulberry leaves was investigated using response surface methodology (RSM). The effects of three extraction factors on the yield of polysaccharides was examined. The results showed that optimum extraction conditions were determined as follows: weight of the sample of 20 g, microwave(More)
The present study investigates the effect of independent variables such as extraction temperature (35-55 °C), time (1-5h) and solid-liquid ratio (1:5-1:25 g/ml) over the extraction yield of polysaccharide from Gossypium arboreum L. seeds was investigated and optimized. Aqueous extraction method was opted for the extraction of polysaccharide. Central(More)
In this study, an efficient ultrasound-assisted extraction (UAE) of pectin from sisal waste was investigated and optimized. Response surface methodology (RSM) based on a three-level four-factor Box-Behnken response surface design (BBD) was employed to optimize the extraction conditions (ultrasonic power, extraction temperature, extraction time and(More)
