This article presents a novel and original approach to analyze in situ the main components of Eucalyptus oil by means of Raman spectroscopy. The obtained two-dimensional Raman maps demonstrate a unique possibility to study the essential oil distribution in the intact plant tissue. Additionally, Fourier Transform (FT)-Raman and attenuated total reflection(More)
Fourier transformed-Raman (FT-Raman) and attenuated total reflection-infrared (ATR-IR) spectra of essential oils obtained from marjoram and oregano plants by hydrodistillation are presented. It is shown that the main components of the essential oils can be ascertained through both of these complementary techniques, using spectral information from the pure(More)
The potential of vibrational spectroscopy methods (attenuated total reflectance/Fourier-transform-infrared (ATR/FT-IR), FT-Raman and near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy) for the identification and quantification of valuable as well as carcinogenic substances in different basil chemotypes is described. It is shown that all main volatile components occurring in(More)
Fourier transform (FT) infrared spectroscopy using a diamond composite ATR crystal and NIR-FT-Raman spectroscopy techniques were applied for the simultaneous identification and quantification of the most important alkaloids in poppy capsules. Most of the characteristic Raman signals of the alkaloids can be identified in poppy milk isolated from unripe(More)
NIR reflection and ATR-IR spectroscopy methods are developed to determine the echinacoside content in roots of Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea pallida. Based on the recorded spectra and the HPLC reference data, chemometrical analyses are performed using a partial least squares (PLS) algorithm. Generally, good calibration statistics are obtained for the(More)
NIR-FT-Raman as well as ATR-IR and NIR spectroscopy in combination with efficient chemometric algorithms was applied for rapid determination of piperine in black and white ground pepper and green whole pepper berries as well as pepper oleoresins. Most of the well-resolved Raman signals detected in the spectra of pepper and the related oleoresins can be(More)
