The feasibility of applying ultrasonics to the chlorophyll extraction of bamboo culm was evaluated to establish an efficient reliable method for chlorophyll extraction from the epidermis of bamboo culm. The results demonstrate that extraction of epidermis chlorophyll from bamboo culm with acetone by ultrasonics for 3 min is a rapid, reliable method.
