Thermodynamic Study of Seed Oil Extraction by Organic Solvents

Authors: Najaf Hedayat, Zhila Safari, Ali Ashrafizadeh


Thermodynamics characterization Sesame oil extraction by Acetone, Hexane and Benzene has been evaluated. The 120 hours experimental Data were described by a simple mathematical model. According to the simulation results and the essential criteria, Acetone is superior to other solvents but under certain conditions where oil extraction takes place Hexane is superior catalyst.
