Cottonseed is a rich source of oil and protein. Cottonseed oil has gained importance as heart healthy oil as it contains lots of un-saturates. It is accepted as a better medium for frying foods. Presently, n-hexane is the solvent of choice in most of the solvent extraction plants though it has been graded as highly toxic and hazardous for the environment. The present study is undertaken to explore the possibility of using ethanol as a non toxic and green solvent in place of nhexane. The…
