Abstract.

  A microwave assisted extraction technique wasdeveloped to optimize the extraction of mucilage from the fruits of Abelmoschusesculentus plant. The plant has been extracted by conventional andmicrowave assisted methods for the isolation of mucilage. Microwave extractionat 160 Wintensity and 40 min heating duration increase 11.55% in the yield of mucilagewhen compared to 1 h conventional heating method. Theproducts obtained by both the methods were of similar nature chemically. Thedeveloped microwave procedure can be used successfully in commercial androutine laboratory isolation of mucilage.

 

Key Words: Microwave, Mucilage, Abelmoschusesculentus.
