Chemical composition of essential oils from flowers, leaves and peel of Citrus aurantium L. var. amara from Tunisia



Chemical composition of essential oils from flowers, leaves and peel of Citrus aurantium L. var. amara from Tunisia



Journal of Essential Oil Bearing Plants 9(2): 133-139



Flowers, leaves and peel oils of Citrus aurantium var. amara from Tunisia (Nabeul) have been studied by GC-FID and GC-MS. Remarkable differences were found between the constituent percentages of the different studied organs. The most important compounds from the neroli oil (flowers) were linalool (34.4%), linalyl acetate (11.3%) and limonene (10.9%). In the petitgrain oil (leaves), the main components were linalool (36.8%), linalyl acetate (22.1%) and alpha -terpineol (11.7%).
