In this paper, the extracts of three-part beggarticks (Bidens tripartita) were prepared using ultrasonic assisted micelle-mediated extraction method (UAMME). Different kind of surfactants and WPC (whey protein concentrate) were applied. In the B. tripartita extracts twenty polyphenols were identified by UPLC-DAD-MS. Both aqueous and UAMME extracts mainly contained chlorogenic acid, caftaric acid and its derivatives as well as luteolin 7-O-glucoside. The luteolin was extracted with Rokanol B2 and Triton X-100. Furthermore, antioxidative properties of the extracts were analyzed with two methods: reactions with di(phenyl)-(2,4,6-trinitrophenyl)iminoazanium (DPPH) reagent and Follin's method. The DPPH radical scavenging by micellar extracts was in general comparable with the antioxidant activity of conventional extracts. The most active was sample with Tego Care CG90, reducing about 73% of the radical. Obtained results confirmed that the UAMME might be an alternative method, to the liquid-liquid or solid-liquid extraction, of obtaining specified extracts rich in active compounds. Selecting a suitable surfactant may thus provide the expected composition of the extract.
