Response surface methodology was used to optimize the extraction yield of total polyphenol contents from the Curcumis sativus peels. The experiment design software 13.01 was used for the optimization by selecting three independent design variables; solvent composition (40-100%), extraction temperature (21- 54 ºC) and extraction time (17-43, minutes). The most suitable extraction conditions evaluated using mathematical model were at 70% methanol composition, 37º C extraction temperature and 30 minutes time. The extraction rate of TPC (Total Phenolic Content) was 22.055 at these optimal conditions. The profiling of methanolic peel extract at these optimized conditions was carried out by HPLC analysis. The compounds identified by HPLC included caffeic acid, gallic acid, protocatechuic acid, kampferol, chlorogenic acid and vannilic acid.
