AS11 Resin-Derived Bioactives – Feasibility and Piloting Studies

Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.


CPL is sometimes asked by clients to organise and co-oerdinate laboratory work on their behalf as part of a larger commercialisation project. 

The objective of this project was to assist a client in investigating the potential to extract bioactives (triterpenes, sesquiterpenes, and others) from tree resins using scCO2 extraction. Potential bioactives of interest included α-amyrin, β-amyrin, α-copaene, β-elemene, spathulenol, platambin, digitoxigenin and gitoxigenin


This project evaluated the suitability of the source material as a substrate for scCO2 extraction. CPL identified a suitable laboratory to carry out the scCO2 extraction feasibility and piloting studies.  CPL managed and co-ordinated study. 


CPL reviewed the experimental results, provided a report on the success of the extraction method and organised logistics to send the extracts produced from the feasibility study to the client for further analysis.
