ABSTRACT Microwave pretreatment-assisted ethanol extraction (MPAEE) was used to extract chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b from Spirulina platensis. The effects of microwave-pretreated process and ethanol extraction process were investigated by single-factor experiments and response surface analysis experiments. The results showed that the optimum process parameters for MPAEE were: acetone/water (1:1, V/V) as the ruptured walls co-solvent (RWC), the volume of the RWC of 10 mL, microwave… CONTINUE READING
