Application of Plackett Burman design for antioxidant extraction from Actinodaphne sesquipedalis leaves


Jamaludin, Siti Fatihah Balqis and Abd Gani, Siti Salwa and Zaidan, Uswatun Hasanah and Bawon, Paiman (2019) Application of Plackett Burman design for antioxidant extraction from Actinodaphne sesquipedalis leaves. International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology, 8 (6S3). pp. 48-51. ISSN 2249-8958


Actinodaphne sesquipedalis Hook. F. Var. Glabra (Kochummen), also known as “Medang payung” by the Malay people, belongs to the Lauraceae family. In this study, a Plackett-Burman design was used to evaluate the significant extraction parameters in achieving maximum DPPH radical scavenging activity from ethanol leaves extract of A. sesquipedalis. Microwave-assisted extraction technique was employed using aqueous ethanol. The independent parameters were microwave power level (30–60 W), feed-to-solvent ratio (1:30 g/ml), irradiation time (30-90 s) and ethanol concentration (20–80%). Amongst the examined parameters, ethanol concentration, microwave power level, and irradiation/extraction time were significant, whereas, feed-to-solvent ratio was insignificant. Therefore, antioxidants from the ethanolic extraction leaves of A. sesquipedalis using microwave technique are significantly affected by ethanol concentration, irradiation time and microwave power.
