Abstract

Chemical pretreated pineapple leaf fiber (PALF) can be most widely used in many industries.Since no information on the bioactive compounds in PALF is currentlyavailable, the aim of this study was to assess the effect of chemical treatment on the phenolic content of PALF extracts. The phenolic contentsand antioxidant properties of PALF extracts were determined as free radical-scavenging ability of DPPH andusing the ABTS radical cation decolorization assay..The important variables in chemical treatment process including temperature, time and acid/alkali concentration were investigated. According to the results, the optimal pickling condition was 10 g/L H2SO4 at 55 for 40 minutes and the optimal alkali boiling condition was 5 g/L NaOH at 50 for 60 minutes. Under the optimal condition, the free phenolic content of PALF was up to 0.2855 mgGAE/gDW.
