Then, pulverized 30 g mushroom samples were placed in cartridges, and the extracts were obtained with ethanol (EtOH) (Merck), methanol (MeOH) (Merck), and dichloromethane (DCM) (Merck) in a soxhlet extractor (Gerhardt EV) at 50[degrees]C for approximately 6 hours.
In this case, 1000 [micro]L of MeOH served as an extraction solvent with 98-99 % recovery.
wallichiana were extracted with 70% MeOH, and the extract was then subjected to repeated column chromatography (CC) on MCI gel CHP20P, Sephadex LH20, ODS, and silica gel column to obtain 11 compounds (1-11).
The DPPH solution was prepared in MeOH and diluted to the concentration that would give an absorbance of 2.4 at 520 nm in a cuvette with 1 cm path length.
The results show that the amount of [H.sub.2][O.sub.2], MeOH, glacial acetic acid, and Ca[Cl.sub.2] added affects the extraction of CDCA in duck bile paste.
500 mL mixture of CH[Cl.sub.3] : MeOH (50 : 50 v/v) was poured into a 1000 mL round bottom flask (RBF).
700 mg PMM sulfate 7 (0.98 mmoL, 1eq) was dissolved in 9.8 mL [H.sub.2]O, 4.9 mL MeOH, and 1.6 mL TEA (11.8 mmoL, 12 eq).
To a portion of EEFFS (10.0 g), cold MeOH was added giving a precipitate which was separated by filtration on sintered glass funnel and washed thoroughly with MeOH yielding 2.43 g.
