Abstract

This study aims to determine the optimum conditions for extraction of essential oil compounds in the aerial parts of Artemisia frigida Willd. Method: the considered extraction method is hydro-distillation, using a Clevenger apparatus. The effect of particle size of raw material, soaking time, liquid to plant material ratio and extraction time on essential oil yield were investigated through both single factor and multi-factor experiments. Results: In the single factor experiment, the influences of the following factors on essential oil extraction were studied; particle size 0.825 mm, soaking time 2 h, and liquid to plant material ratio 12:1. Under the multi-factor experiment, the influences of multiple factors of extraction conditions on essential oil were considered, particularly, extraction time (C)>soaking time (A)>liquid to plant material ratio. Conclusion: For extraction of essential oil from the aerial parts of Artemisia frigida Willd, the following optimum extraction parameters were identified: 2h of soaking time, 10:1 liquid to solid ratio, and 8h of extraction time.
