Lipophilic And Hydrophilic Extraction Of Tomato Case Study

Superior Essays
Extraction of Lipophilic and Hydrophilic Antioxidants A modified method was used to separate the lipophilic and hydrophilic extracts of tomato (Toor and Savage 2005; Teow et al. 2007; Kotíková et al. 2011; Riahi and Hdider 2013). In brief, 1 g of freeze-dried sample powder in 20 mL hexane was ultrasonicated by ultrasound assisted extraction (Ultrasonic Sonicator, RF103H, Bandelin Sonorex, Germany) for 20 min, and the mixture was transferred to centrifuge tube and centrifuged at 4000 rpm for 10 min. The supernatant was filtered through Whatman filter paper No. 42. The filtrate was evaporated to dryness at 50oC using a vacuum evaporator. The residue was then redissolved in 5 mL acetone and vortexes to get homogenous samples. The lipophilic …show more content…
The residue after hexane extraction was then extracted with 20 mL of 50% (v/v) methanol in water and ultrasonicated for 20 min. The mixture was transferred to a centrifuge tube followed by centrifugation at 4000 rpm for 10 min. The supernatant was filtered once and transferred to another tube prior to the determination of hydrophilic antioxidant activity. The lipophilic and hydrophilic antioxidant activity was measured in triplicates for each extract. Four variables that could potentially affect the extraction efficiency were studied using the same procedure mentioned above. The experiments were carried out at three types of organic solvents for lipophilic fractions (ethyl acetate, hexane, 50% acetone in water) and four types of solvent for hydrophilic fractions (0.1M phosphate buffer pH7.4, acetone: water: acetic acid (70:29.5:0.5), 50% methanol in water, 7% acetic acid in 80% methanol). The amount between solid (sample) and liquid (organic solvents) was carried out at the ratios of 1:10, 1:15, 1:20 and 1:25 g:mL. The ultrasonication times were varied at six extraction time levels (10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 min). …show more content…
This method was carried out with slight modifications (Hossaina et al. 2008; Li et al. 2012). The FRAP method measures the ability of the antioxidants to reduce ferric–tripyridyl-triazine (Fe3+-TPTZ) complex to the blue colored ferrous form which absorbs light at 593 nm. The ferric-TPTZ reagent was prepared by mixing 300 mM acetate buffer, pH 3.6, 10 mM TPTZ in 40 mM HCl and 20 mM FeCl3.6H2O in the ratio of 10:1:1 (v/v/v). The FRAP reagent was freshly prepared before each experiment. Briefly, 60 µL of different concentrations of the reference standard or the sample extractwere mixed with 1000 µL FRAP reagent and incubated at 37oC for the duration of the reaction. The absorbance readings were taken at 593 nm at 30 min. Increasing absorbance of the reaction mixture indicates an increase of reduction capability. Six concentrations of 500, 600, 700, 800, 900 and 1000 µM were used to prepare the standard curve of ascorbic acid. The antioxidant activities of the tomato extracts were expressed as µmol AEAC/100 g DW while the antioxidant activities of six reference standards were expressed as EC1, the concentration of antioxidant that reduced Fe3+-TPTZ equal to 1 mM

    A series of standard solutions of concentrations in the range of 3-60µg/mL were obtained by further dilution of the aliquots with methanol. All the solutions were stored at -20oC and were equilibrated to room temperature prior to use. To prepare the standard calibration samples, 50µL of standard solution and 100µL of Acetonitrile were added to 100µL of blank plasma. The mixture was vortex-mixed for 10 min, followed by centrifugation at 4000 rpm for 15 min. 20µLof the supernatant was taken, then filtered through 0.22µm size syringe filter, and injected in HPLC for analysis.…

    The ter-polymerization solution was left for 24 hr at room temperature to complete the polycondensation reaction. Ammonia solution, 10 mL of 33 % NH4OH diluted by 20 mL of distilled water, was added drop wisely until a deep brown precipitate was produced. The filtered precipitate (EB) was washed with sufficient amount of deionized water then washed by ethanol to remove residual oxidant, unreacted monomer and oligomer until the filtrate became colorless and oven dried at 60 °C for overnight. The deep brown dried powder produces PANI-AA-o-PDA (PAAAPDAK1). The gained terpolymer yield was calculated to be 88.3 % utilizing the subsequent compatible…

    Ethyl vinyl ether was used to protect –OH on glycidol based on a literature reported protocal.59 In a typical procedure, 0.675 mol glycidol and 200 mL ethyl vinyl ether were loaded in a round-bottom flask, to which 1.25 g TsOH was then added. The reaction was allowed to proceed at room temperature (RT) for 3h. The resulting mixture was then purified by washing with 100 ml saturated aqueous solution of NaHCO3 for 3 times. The organic layer obtained was dried by MgSO4. After filtration of MgSO4, the excess ethyl vinyl ether was removed by rotary evaporation.…

    The carbodimide chemistry reaction involves first the activation of the carboxyl group using 1-Ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide EDC and then a covalent reaction between free amino group and activated carboxyl group in PEG-EGFR and PF0-HNC respectively [42]. In brief, 10 mg of Methoxy-PEG-COOH and 5 times molar excess of the EDC was dissolved in 5 ml 0.1 M MES buffer (pH 4 ~ 5) under continuous stirring for 2 hours. The unreacted EDC was removed by performing dialysis with dialysis membrane (MW cut off 1000). Later, 5 mg of EGFR peptide was added to the above activated Methoxy-PEG-COOH to form Methoxy-PEG-EGFR. To attain conjugation of PEG-EGFR peptide on PF0-HNC, first the carboxyl group located on PEG-EGFR peptide was activated by the addition of 20% molar excess of N-hydroxysulfo-succinimide (NHS) and EDC followed by the addition of this carboxyl activated peptide to PF0-HNC to form PF0-HNC-E.…
