Abstract The quality assessment of bergamot essential oils was established employing the gas chromatography-combustion- isotope ratio mass spectrometer (GC-C-IRMS) technique. An authenticity range was obtained investigating the carbon stable isotope ratio of genuine Italian bergamot essential oils (harvest period 2008–2009), in order to compare the GC-C-IRMS data of several industrial, commercial and foreign bergamot essential oil samples. Moreover, with the aim to test the efficiency and the…
