Chromatographia (Impact Factor: 1.37). 10/2009; 70(7):1147-1151. DOI: 10.1365/s10337-009-1269-7

ABSTRACT An ultrasound assisted SPME method with a new nanoporous SBA-15 fiber functionalized with 3-[bis(2-hydroxyethyl)amino]propyl-triethoxysilane
was successfully applied to the study of the essential oil composition of cumin (Cuminum cyminum L.) seeds. The sample was irradiated by ultrasound radiation and its volatile components were collected by the fiber from
the sample headspace and directly injected into a GC-MS injection port for analysis. A simplex method was used for optimization
of four different parameters affecting the efficiency of the extraction. Under the optimized conditions (i.e. sample weight,
0.6g; temperature, 70°C; sonication time, 12min and extraction time, 28min), the number of components identified by the
proposed method and their amounts were identical to those of a hydrodistillation technique. The extraction efficiency of the
SBA-15 fiber was superior to a PDMS commercial fiber. The major components identified were p-menta-1,3-dien-7-al, cuminaldehyde, γ-terpinene and p-cymene, respectively. The proposed method was applied to a comparative study of the essential oil composition of cumin in
three different climate conditions of the Lorestan province in Iran. The results indicated that the essential oils in the
temperate and tropical locations were 94.0 and 85.6% of the cold region, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: The antioxidant activities of β-pinene, p-cymene, γ-terpinene, cuminaldehyde and cumin oils (cumin oleoresin/COR, cumin essential oil/CEO, distillation residue/DR and distillate condensed from cold trap/CT) were investigated in the present study. IC50 values and kinetics rates were used to evaluate the efficiency of tested samples in scavenging the alkylperoxyl radical generated in the β-carotene-linoleic acid system and the 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical (DPPH β R (β-carotene) R (DPPH) γ R (β-carotene) 50(β-carotene) R 2(DPPH) γ 50 γ

    ABSTRACT: In this study, the aqueous extract of Cuminum Ciminum L. seed was applied on wool as a novel natural colorant. Gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry was conducted to identify the composition of the extract. Response surface methodology and D-optimal design were employed to investigate and optimize the effects of three independent factors including mordant concentration, dyeing pH and temperature on the color strength of dyed samples. A statistical model was obtained to correlate between the amounts of three independent factors and color strength of dyed samples as the response. Low pressure plasma treatment using oxygen, argon, and their mixture was employed to improve the dyeability of wool fibers. The effect of different plasma treatments on the surface chemistry and morphology of wool fibers were studied using attenuated total reflectance-Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and field emission scanning electron microscopy, respectively. The fastness properties of dyed samples were also investigated.

    ABSTRACT: This study evaluated the optimal conditions for extracting dietary fiber (DF) from deoiled cumin by shear emulsifying assisted enzymatic hydrolysis (SEAEH) using the response surface methodology. Fat adsorption capacity (FAC), glucose adsorption capacity (GAC), and bile acid retardation index (BRI) were measured to evaluate the functional properties of the extracted DF. The results revealed that the optimal extraction conditions included an enzyme to substrate ratio of 4.5%, a reaction temperature of 57°C, a pH value of 7.7, and a reaction time of 155min. Under these conditions, DF extraction efficiency and total dietary fiber content were 95.12% and 84.18%, respectively. The major components of deoiled cumin DF were hemicellulose (37.25%) and cellulose (33.40%). FAC and GAC increased with decreasing DF particle size (51-100μm), but decreased with DF particle sizes <26μm; BRI increased with decreasing DF particle size. The results revealed that SEAEH is an effective method for extracting DF. DF with particle size 26-51μm had improved functional properties. Copyright © 2015. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
