To extract the main components from Carthamus tinctorius L., the Box-Behnken design method and response surface methodology were used to optimize the extraction process of C. tinctorius L.; Hydroxy-safflower yellow A and kaempferol-3-O-rutinoside were the main flavonoids in C. tinctorius L. petals . The results showed that Ultrasonic extraction method were the optimal extraction technology: using 57% methanol as solvent, liquid-material ratio was 0.1∶25 g·mL-1, ultrasonic temperature was 70℃, extraction time was 45 min, ultrasound power was 177 W, Under these conditions, hydroxy-safflower yellow A extraction yield was 1.74%, kaempferol-3-O-rutinoside extraction yield was 1.53%. The safflower main ingredient extraction was recommended to use ultrasonic extraction.

Key words: Carthamus tinctorius L., Hydroxy-safflower yellow A, kaempferol-3-O-rutinoside, extraction technology, response surface methodology
