Base on Eq. (2), the quadratic model predicted that the maximum yield of taurine was 13.2 mg/g when the extraction time, ultrasonic power, and extraction temperature were 38.3 min, 300.0 W, and 40.5 °C, respectively.
3.2. Verification experiments
Experiments were carried out to verify the results of the BBD experiments as well as confirm the utility of this ABT737 model. Using the previously mentioned optimized conditions, the maximum yield of taurine was 13.0 mg/g (Table 4). These results suggest that the experimental and predicted values were in good agreement. The
