The classical methods of chromatographic identification of compounds were based on calculation of retention indices by using different stationary phases. The aim of the work was to differentiate essential oils extracted from different plant species by identification of some of their major compounds. The method of identification was based on the calculation of new retention indices of essential oils compounds fractionated on a polar chromatographic column with temperature programming system… Expand
Linear retention indices in gas chromatographic analysis: a review
The main purpose of any chromatographic analysis is to resolve mixtures of compounds into less complex mixtures or ultimately into pure components. In addition to this function, the chromatographicExpand

A regression model for calculating the second dimension retention index in comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography time-of-flight mass spectrometry.
A novel regression model was proposed for calculating second dimension retention index of target components where n-alkanes were used as reference compounds and demonstrates a good extrapolation capability for predicting adjusted retention time of target compounds which located out of the range of the reference compounds in the second dimensionadjusted retention time space.

Characterisation of lavender essential oils by using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry with correlation of linear retention indices and comparison with comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography.
Nine samples of lavender essential oil were analysed by GC-MS using low-polarity and polar capillary columns and linear retention indices (LRI) were calculated for each component detected, finding more components could be found within the two-dimensional separation space. Expand
Temperature-programmed retention indices for gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy analysis of plant essential oils.
Temperature-programmed retention indices (PTRIs) showed that efficiency and reliability were improved greatly when chemometric method and PTRIs were used as assistants of GC-MS in identification of chemical components in plant essential oils. Expand
Gas chromatographic technologies for the analysis of essential oils.
This present review outlines the developmental nature of instrumental approaches to essential oil analysis using gas chromatography, and single-column and multi-dimensional analysis will be covered, as will sample handling or introduction techniques before the analysis step, where these techniques provide some measure of separation.

GC/MS evaluation of thyme (Thymus vulgaris L.) oil composition and variations during the vegetative cycle.
Oils from thyme plants of young (2 years) and old (5 years) cultivations have been evaluated from four and two collections, respectively, effected throughout May/December growth period, and generally, the oil was found to be rich in the active monoterpene phenols and their corresponding monoterPene hydrocarbon precursors, which collectively showed synchronized patterns of variation during the different collection periods and in different seasons.
