In the Preface to Identification of Essential Oil Components by Gas Chromatography/Quadrupole Mass Spectroscopy [sic], Robert P. Adams, the author, states that he began research on essential oils in 1966. This may account for the reason that he persistently uses the term mass spectroscopy rather than mass spectrometry (Robert, there are no light bulbs inside those mass spectrometers). Again, as was the case with the second edition, there is no indication that this is a third edition; but, as in… 

Analysis of the essential oils Gas chromatography analysis / mass spectrometry analysis conditions Gas chromatography analysis

The chemical composition of essential oils isolated from the leaves of Juniperus oxycedrus by hydrodistillation was analyzed by GC-MS. 42 compounds, representing 96.73% of total oil, were identified.

Determination of radix ginseng volatile oils at different ages by comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography/time-of-flight mass spectrometry.

It was found that the relative abundances of alpha-cadinol, alpha-bisabolol, thujopsene, and n-hexadecanoic acid significantly rise with the increase in age, and the compounds responsible for the significant differentiation among samples were defined.

Chemical Constituents of Essential Oils of the Leaves of Three Species of Croton from Vietnam

An Agilent Technologies HP 6890N Plus chromatograph fitted with an HP-5 MS fused silica capillary column and interfaced with an HP 5973 MSD (70 eV) mass spectrometer was used for the GC/MS analysis

GC-FID-MS and X-ray Diffraction for the Detailed Evaluation of the Volatiles From Senecio filaginoides

The medicinal aromatic plant Senecio filaginoides DC, which is very widespread in the Patagonia region, was harvested at the vegetative, flowering, and fructification stages. The materials were

Separation of Volatile Metabolites from the Leaf-Derived Essential Oil of Piper mollicomum Kunth (Piperaceae) by High-Speed Countercurrent Chromatography

The countercurrent chromatography technique proved to be a fast and efficient method for the separation of volatile metabolites that conserved the solvent while delivering various fractions of high purity.


Secondary volatile metabolites that compose the essential oil were isolated by atmospheric simultaneous distillation-solvent extraction (SDE) from the bark and leaves of Oplopanax horridus.

Chemical derivatization and mass spectral libraries in metabolic profiling by GC/MS and LC/MS/MS.

The potential of derivatization for metabolic profiling in LC/MS is demonstrated by the enhanced analysis of plant extracts, including the potential to measure volatile acids such as formic acid, difficult to achieve by GC/MS.

The Qualitative and Quantitative Determinations of Volatile Constituents in Some Herbal Medicines by Gas Chromatography

Many herbal medicines pertain characteristic odour which indicates the volatility of some compositions. Most of the volatiles constituents have low molecular weight, typically, monoterpenes,

GC-MS Analysis of Essential Oil from Long Pepper Growing in Tepi, South-west Ethiopia

The objectives of the study were to extract and identify essential oils present in Long pepper by using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The essential oil of Long pepper growing in Tepi,
