The RSM with three-factor, four-level Box-Behnken Design (BBD) was used to study and optimize the extraction variables. A second order polynomial model fitted well to the experimental data with R2 values of 0.79, 0.66, 0.64, 0.73 for fucose, total glucans, FRAP and DPPH, respectively. The UAE parameters studied had a significant influence on the levels of fucose, FRAP and DPPH. The optimised UAE conditions (temperature = 76 ◦C, time = 10 min and amplitude = 100%) achieved yields of fucose (1060.7 ± 70.6 mg/100 g dried seaweed (ds)), total glucans (968.6 ± 13.3 mg/100 g ds), FRAP (8.7 ± 0.5 µM trolox/mg freeze-dried extract (fde)) and DPPH (11.0 ± 0.2%) in L. digitata. Polysaccharide rich extracts were also attained from L. hyperborea and A. nodosum with variable results when utilizing the optimum UAE conditions for L. digitata.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||MDPI||Journal:||Marine Drugs||Volume:||16||Issue:||8||Copyright (published version):||2018 the Authors||Keywords:||Laminaria; Seaweed; Phenols; Glucans; Fucose; Polysaccharides; Free radical scavengers; Chemical fractionation; Ultrasonic waves||DOI:||10.3390/md16080257||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||ISSN:||1660-3397||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
