Optimum extraction of polysaccharides from motherwort leaf and its antioxidant and antimicrobial activities.


Box-Behnken design was employed to optimize the extraction conditions for polysaccharides from the leaves of motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca L.). Three independent variables including extraction temperature (60-100 °C), extraction time (60-120 min), and the ratio of water to raw material (20-60) were investigated. The results revealed that the quadratic and… (More)
