AN OPTIMAL THERMAL CONDITION FOR MAXIMAL CHLOROPHYLL EXTRACTION

ABSTRACT
This work describes an environmentally friendly process for chlorophyll extraction from bamboo leaves. Shaking water bath and ultrasound cleaner are adopt-ed in this technology, and the influence of temperature of the water bath and ultrasonic cleaner is evaluated. Results indicated that there is an optimal condition for maximal yield of chlorophyll.
