Abstract (PDF)
Graphical Abstract: This paper focuses on the study of the effect of extraction solvent choice on phenolic compounds contents and antioxidant activity of Bassia muricata. In this study, five different solvents namely: water, acetone, ethanol, methanol and hexane, and three extraction techniques were used to extract phenolic compounds: microwave-assisted extraction, Soxhlet and maceration. Total phenolics, total flavonoids and condensed tannins contents were determined. The results showed that different solvents with different polarity had a major effect on polyphenolic contents and antioxidant activity. Microwave-assisted extraction was the best suited for the extraction of antioxidant molecules when compared to Soxhlet and maceration.
