A ball mill assisted mechanochemical extraction method was developed to extract compounds of natural product from plant using ionic liquid . A small volume ball mill, also known as PastPrep Homogenizer, which is often used for high speed lysis of biological samples and for other applicat
A new ball mill extraction method for solid dosage forms was developed. It was used for tablets, and compared with a conventional method applied in pharmaceutical analysis of solid dosage forms. The ball mill sample preparation procedure is both quantitative and fast. No powdering, weighing and sonication steps are needed in the sample preparation.
