We employed the method of thin-layer chromatography for the separation and identification of some well-known essential oils as Sandalwood, Patchouly and Vetiver oils. After having cleared up the factors securing satisfactory separation (quality, composition and preparation of the adsorbent, composition of the developing agent, time and temperature), the most suitable reagent for the developing of the components containing different functional groups has been chosen. For want of pure reference agents, we identified the main oil components partly on the basis of the Rf values of the literature, partly by the elution and by gas-chromatography of the components separated by thin-layer chromatography. We registered the spectrogram of the main components separated by thin-layer chromatography and of those of pure patchouly oil, employing a spectrophotometer of Type UR-20, in order to determine the quality and quantity of the components of the oils. Detailed elaboration of the combined methods serving for the qualitative and quantitative determination of the composition of essential oils will be the program of our further research work.
