With the increasing demand for natural products, how to efficiently and environmentally extract valuable ingredients from nature has become an important research field. In this context, membrane separation technology has become a cutting-edge technology in the field of natural product extraction with its unique advantages.

Natural products, such as plant extracts, animal extracts, microbial metabolites, etc., usually contain complex chemical compositions, including both bioactive substances that are beneficial to the human body and unwanted impurities. Traditional extraction methods are often difficult to effectively separate the two, resulting in the purity and quality of the extract is not high. Through the combination of inorganic ceramic membrane and organic membrane, membrane separation technology can achieve high-precision and high-selectivity separation, so as to extract high-purity target components.

In the field of plant extracts, membrane separation technology can be widely used in the extraction of tea, Chinese herbs, fruits and other plants. For example, for the extraction of tea extract, membrane separation technology can effectively remove irritating components such as caffeine and theophylline in tea, while retaining beneficial components such as tea polyphenols and amino acids in tea, making tea extract more pure, safe and effective. For the extraction of Chinese herbal extracts, membrane separation technology can remove tannin, protein and other non-medicinal components of Chinese herbal extracts, and improve the efficacy and quality of Chinese herbal extracts.

Membrane separation technique

In the field of animal extracts, membrane separation technology also has a wide range of application prospects. For example, in the separation and extraction of heparin sodium, animal blood enzymes, vaccines, hormones and other extracts, membrane separation technology can remove impurities and improve the purity and quality of the extract. This is of great significance for improving the efficacy and safety of animal extracts.

In addition to the above fields, membrane separation technology also has a wide range of applications in the extraction of microbial metabolites. Microbial metabolites usually contain a variety of complex chemical components, including both valuable bioactive substances and unwanted impurities. Through membrane separation technology, efficient extraction and purification of these bioactive substances can be achieved.

The application of membrane separation technology in the extraction of natural products not only improves the purity and quality of the extract, but also reduces the production cost and energy consumption. In addition, the technology also has the advantages of environmental protection, simple operation and easy automatic control. These advantages make membrane separation technology have broad application prospect and far-reaching influence in the field of natural product extraction.
