Identification of volatile organic compounds of Anethum L juice using headspace and direct solid phase micro extraction (HS-SPME, DI-SPME) gas chromatography mass spectrometry(GC/MS)

Author(s): Azizollah Nezhadali, Mina Akbarpour

A comparison of headspace and direct immersion solid-phase micro extraction (HS-SPME and DI-SPME) coupled to gas chromatography (GC) with mass spectrometry detection for the analysis of volatile organic compounds of Anethum L juice. The major components were: Carvone (61.63-70.25%), Dihydrocarvone (14.51-21.25%), Dillapiole (4.34-18.42%), Carvacrol (0.81-2.24%), Estragole (0.30-0.62%), Fenchone (0.35-0.51%) and Myrtenal (0.34-0.51%). The proposed methods were successfully applied to determining the fruit juices.
