ABSTRACT:
Essential oils were extracted from five major citrus cultivars in Kikai-jima Island (Amami archipelago, Japan), namely, ‘Shiiku’ (C. sp.), ‘Keraji’ (C. Keraji hort. ex Tanaka), ‘Kunenbo’ (C. nobilis Lour.), ‘Fusuu’ (C. rokugatsu hort. ex Y. Tanaka), and ‘Kuriha’ (C. Keraji hort. ex Tanaka var. Kabuchii), and their volatile components were characterized by gas-chromatography/mass-spectrometry. A total of 54 volatile components were identified in the samples studied. The major components of ‘Shiiku’ oil were linalool, a-terpinol, geranyl acetate, and geraniol. The other citrus essential oils of Kikai-jima showed a composition similar to that of cultivars in Okinawa.
