A comparison of volatile fractions obtained from Lonicera macranthoides via different extraction processes: ultrasound, microwave, Soxhlet extraction, hydrodistillation, and cold maceration

BACKGROUND Hydrodistillation has been traditionally used to extract volatile fraction in traditional Chinese medicine. However, with the development of Soxhlet extraction (SE), microwave (MW), ultrasound (US), and cold maceration (CM), hydrodistillation (HD) is being replaced to meet some practical requirements. In this study, we investigated the effect of… CONTINUE READING
