SEMI-MICRO SCALE DETERMINATION OF VOLATILE OIL CONTENT

Published on

DURING the course of our investigations on a co-ordinated scheme combining the
botanical and chemical aspects for the improvement of essential oil yielding plants
with special reference to a few selected spices, the need arose to examine hundreds
of samples of spices, comprising indigenous as well as exotic collections and of varieties
grown in different soil and climatic regions of the country, under varying conditions of
manurial treatments, harvest, drying and storage. A knowledge of the essential
oil content of the variety under examination is but the first guiding indication of its
quality on which depends its selection for further breeding and propagation.
