Research Methods for the Isolation and Analysis of Essential Oils from Natural Resources

Alvin Sherman Library 2053

The purpose of this research is to carry out the extraction of essential oils from their natural sources using steam distillation, to assess the purity of these products using physical and chemical properties, to examine the practicality of alternative collection methods, and to assess the relationship between these products and compile the information about their medical uses—including alternative therapies. Since essential oils are mixtures, absolute separation is not an easy task. We isolated essential oils from several natural sources and characterized them with the use of IR and when appropriate compared our results with standards available.
