The application of the O-FID Oxygenates Analyzer developed for the selective determination of oxygenated compounds in modern fuels has been studied for the identification and characterization of essential oils. In comparison to FID detection the O-FID technique results in a much simpler chromatogram. Because of the high selectivity for oxygenated compounds the O-FID method offers a fast and reliable quality control and positive identification of samples of different origin. Chromatograms obtained for lavender oils of different origin, natural and synthetic lemon oils and oils of bergamot respectively, as well as for camomilla oils are presented.
