When the liquid passes through the filter, it prevents the microbes entering to the filtrate. Discuss what do you mean by extraction. The active ingredient will come out in the water. The marc left is a compact gummy matter.

Difference Between Maceration and Percolation l Maceration vs Percolation

It is proved that stationary menstruum menstruum remaining in contact with the drug dissolves more menstruum is required to exhaust the drug when simple percolation is used. Thus the active ingredient can be separated from the plant. Tolu syrup has some aromatic odour and flavour and it is believed to have a mild expectorant action. The following concentrated infusions are prepared by double maceration process:. This marc can be expressed i. The tinctures made by simple maceration process are.


Infusion, Decoction, Expression, Maceration, Percolation

The packing should not be too tight, it will lead to slow extraction rate. Extra menstruum is passed percoolation the extracted drug to make up the volume. Mostly alcohol incorporates in the maceration of different foods since it helps to soften of foods.

Gentian Cascara, Belladonna Ipecacuanha.

Chemical constituents of the drug: Maceration is the process of soaking or steeping anything to make it softer. The pores are then occupied by air.

Infusion, Decoction, Expression, Maceration, Percolation

Hence, percolation regulates the effect of microorganisms in many products such as food and pharmaceuticals. During this period the drug swells up as the menstruum penetrates the cell walls.

Hence, the major portion of the active constituents of the drug are saved from deterioration. Sliced and bruised Coarse and moderately coarse powders Moderately fine powder. Most pharmacopoeias generally refer to maceration and percolation for the extraction of active principles from crude drugs.

A freshly prepared decoction should be taken within 24 hours because microorganisms may grow in aqueous medium. This concentrated liquid is mixed with the liquid obtained from the 1st maceration. At present no decoction is official in IP or BP.


Characteristics of the active constituents. However, their applications differ from each other. Maceration is a soaking method by which the substances are softened and extracted into a liquid while percolation is a brewing method in which the liquid runs through a filter with the dried and grounded compound.

Concentrated compound infusion of chirata and. All the types of maceration, whether they are chemical or biological, it involves the softening of some substance. The resudue of the drug after extraction often known as the marc is saturated with solvent. It is heated again in water bath to dissolve the sucrose. Short note on Soxhlet extractor with diagram. It should be stable chemically and physically. Examination of the extraction processes will show that all have certain stages in common:.

The pot is filled with water and the perforated shelf is adjusted below the surface of water. So if the temperature is increased the solubility will also enhance. So to extract the atropine from the leaves a selective solvent has to be used so that only atropine is soluble in it.
