Extraction of Lantana camara essential oil by supercritical carbon dioxide: influence of the grinding and biological activity.Nat Prod Res. 2007 Jan; 21(1):33-6.NP
The aim of this study was to produce Lantana camara essential oil by SFE and to study the effect of matrix grinding on the yield and/or composition of the extract. Experiments were carried out on grinding matrices (G) and on not grinding matrices (NG). The extracts were analyzed by GC-MS. A comparison with the oil obtained by hydrodistillation is also given. Finally, the antibacterial and antifungal activity of the various extracts has been assayed.
