Abstract

Production and characterization of Carissa carandas seed oil

This paper presents a study on the extraction of Carissa carandas seed oil of Indian origin. Production and characterization of Carissa carandas seed oil was carried out using Soxhlet apparatus. Two solvents were used for the extraction of Carissa carandas seed oil namely; n-Hexane and Acetone. The extraction was carried out at the boiling point of the respective solvents. From that hexane gives good results as compared Acetone. It gives higher yield, low moisture content. Physiochemical characterization and ash composition of Hexane extracted Carissa carandas seed oil were determined namely moisture content, relative viscosity, specific gravity, acid value, iodine number, saponification number, peroxide value.
