Selective Recovery of Alkaloids from Glaucium Flavum Crantz Using Integrated Process Extraction-Pertraction
Abstract:Selective recovery of aporphine alkaloids from Glaucium flavum Crantz was studied. The alkaloids were successfully recovered from aqueous solutions, including native extracts of Glaucium flavum Crantz, applying pertraction in a rotating discs contactor. As a liquid membrane n-heptane and as receiving solution diluted phosphoric acid were used. Pertraction was also coupled to solid-liquid extraction in order to simultaneously purify the extract obtained from the plant. This integrated extraction-pertraction process was very simple, rapid, and efficient. The permeation of alkaloids through the liquid membrane was very selective and their purity in the receiving solution was 88.7%.
