Abstract [en]

Pressurized hot (subcritical) water and ethanol were used to extract betulin and antioxidants from birch bark. Betulin was found to be the major compound (around 26% (w/w)), which was able to be extracted with ethanol (120 degrees C, 50 bar, 15 minutes) but not with water at any of the temperatures tested (40-180 degrees C, 50 bar). The obtained extraction result for betulin is supported by theoretical solvation parameter calculations. Furthermore, high antioxidant activity of the extract was obtained using both ethanol and water as solvent. The antioxidant activity, as determined by a DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) assay, was found to be highest for the water extract of finely ground bark and it markedly increased with elevated extraction temperatures (90-180 degrees C). To elucidate if this was due to increased extraction efficiency or chemical reactions, a set of experiments was performed in which the samples were pre-treated with water at different temperatures before extraction. Results from liquid chromatography showed some differences in molecular composition between samples pre-treated at ambient and 180 degrees C, respectively. However, more detailed studies have to be performed to distinguish between hot-water extraction and reaction kinetics.

Abstract [en]

Analytical chemistry has developed throughout time to meet current needs. At present, the interest in biorefinery is growing, due to environmental awareness and the depletion of fossil resources. Biomass from agricultural and forestry industries has proven to be excellent raw material for different processes. Biorefinering valuable species such as bioactive species from biomass, without compromising the primary process of the biomass is highly desirable. Pressurised fluid extraction (PFE) using water and ethanol as a solvent was developed for extracting betulin from birch (Betula pendula) bark. Apart from betulin, stilbene glucosides such as astringin, isorhapontin and picied were also extracted from spruce (Picea abies) using PFE. PFE is an advanced technique that extracts at temperatures above the solvent’s atmospheric boiling point. The applied pressure in PFE is mainly to maintain the liquid state of the extraction solvent. Parameters such as type of solvent, temperature, and time affect the extraction selectivity and efficiency. Therefore it is necessary to comprehend these parameters in order to optimise extraction. The DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl) assay was used to determine the antioxidant capacity and activity of the obtained bioactive species. The results showed high antioxidant capacity in bioactive species that were extracted at an elevated temperature, 180°C. Extraction and degradation occur simultaneously during the extraction. Hence, it is crucial to separate these two processes in order to obtain the actual value.

An online hyphenated system of chromatographic separation electrochemical mass spectrometric detection was developed (LC-DAD-ECD-MS/MS). The electrochemical detector facilitates real-time monitoring of the antioxidant capacity and activity of each antioxidant and its oxidation products. This developed LC-DAD-ECD-MS/MS method enabled rapid screening of antioxidants and created a fingerprint map for their oxidation products. Characterisation and molecular elucidation of bioactive species were also performed. Degradation of bioactive species was investigated with the said online system and birch bark extract was compared with birch bark extracts that were hydrothermally treated. The obtained results showed some degradation of antioxidants at 180°C.

In summary, the aim of this thesis was to develop analytical methods integrated with sustainable chemistry for extraction of bioactive species in biomass from the forestry industry. A novel online system using selective and sensitive detectors such as diode-array, electrochemical, and tandem mass spectrometry was developed to rapidly determine the antioxidant capacity and activity of antioxidants. Furthermore, tandem mass spectrometry enables identification of unknown bioactive species without the need of reference samples.
