The best CO2 extraction process of artemisinin


CO2 Extraction Machine Buyer’s Guide

As you can imagine, not all supercritical CO2 extractors are made the same.
For more than 30 years, we have customized many CO2 extraction machines (Tabletop CO2 Extractor) for many companies and university laboratories (1 lb CO2 extractor). Because each customer’s CO2 extraction process requirements are different, there are almost no identical machines.

How many liters of CO2 extraction vessel are needed?

The first factor that determines the size of the CO2 extraction vessel is the daily working hours of the plant, which determines the daily extraction batch. The vessel size of the CO2 extractor depends on the biomass to be processed per day.

How many pressure is best for your CO2 extraction process requirements?

The choice of CO2 extraction pressure is a changing factor. If the extraction pressure is too high, the useless substances in the plant will be extracted, such as wax and chlorophyll. If the extraction pressure is too low, the extraction time will be increased.

CO2 Extraction Process
The process of supercritical CO2 extraction of essential oils


  1. Supercritical CO2 fluid extraction is used. The temperature of extraction is low and inert gas is used to protect artemisinin from oxidation and destruction.
  2. The combination of extraction and separation improves production efficiency and saves energy consumption.
  3. In the process of extraction, the organic solvent in the traditional method is dispensed with, and there is no residual organic solvent in the finished product, which keeps the whole nature of the extract.
  4. The whole process will not produce “three wastes” and will not cause pollution to the environment.

In the traditional process, artemisinin is completely extracted from plant Artemisia annua by using fat soluble organic solvent, and the extraction rate is nearly 100%.

At the same time, the fat soluble impurities such as organic wax, volatile oil, artemisinin a, artemisinin B and artemisinin C are also extracted. Then high purity artemisinin was prepared by gradient elution of silica gel column chromatography with different polar eluents.

Artemisinin is a compound extracted and isolated from Artemisia annua L., an annual herb of Artemisia in the composite family.

It was first isolated from Artemisia annua L. by Chinese scholars in the early 1970s. Artemisinin is the most effective drug for the treatment of cerebral malaria and chloroquine falciparum malaria in the world.

The combination therapy has become the first choice of malaria treatment recommended by the World Health Organization.

In addition to its antimalarial effect, artemisinin also has the effects of anti pregnancy, anti fibrosis, anti schistosomiasis, anti Toxoplasma, anti arrhythmia and tumor cytotoxicity, inhibiting scar fibroblasts, and anti herpes simplex virus.

It is used in modern clinical treatment of falciparum malaria, fever, schistosomiasis, oral mucosa lichen planus, lupus erythematosus and arrhythmia.

Artemisinin and its derivatives are new antimalarial drugs with high efficiency, high speed, low toxicity and safety.
