Rapid and accurate determination of terpenes in the leaves of Eucalyptus species
*Subscription may be required
The vapour-phase Chromatographic analysis of the ethanol extract of leaves of Eucalyptus species has been investigated in order to develop a more accurate determination of the terpene content. Conventional techniques based on steam distillation have been shown to have serious faults when compared with solvent extraction procedures. The convenience of the method during both the field sampling and the laboratory analysis stages is a major advantage. The procedure is suitable for large numbers of samples and requires only small amounts of leaf material.
