AUTHOR(S): Ke Liu, Weihui Deng, Shan Cao and Jiong Chun
ABSTRACT:The essential oils of peel, leaf and flower of ‘Newhall’ and ‘Gannanzao’ navel orange were extracted by simultaneous distillation extraction method and analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). A total of seventy-two constituents were identified. Twenty-seven, Forty-four and thirty-nine compounds were identified in peel, leaf and flower essential oil of ‘Newhall’ navel orange, respectively; thirty-eight, thirty-nine and Forty-two compounds were identified in peel, leaf and flower essential oil of ‘Gannanzao’ navel orange, respectively. Limonene was the prominent component of the peel oil of both oranges, accounting for 81.62% and 88.07% of the total composition, respectively. There were no dominant components in the leaf and flower essential oils. Sabinene, limonene, linalool, and citronellal were abundant components of leaf essential oils. Sabinene, linalool, and nerolidol were main components in flower essential oils. The components of the same organs of these two navel oranges showed certain similarities, but some differences in content with different organs.
