In this study, the contamination by chloroparaffin of Sicilian and Calabrian citrus essential oils, produced in the crop years 1994-1996, was investigated. The analyses were carried out on 102 lemon oils, 98 orange oils, and 96 mandarin oils, using a dual-channel GC-ECD. It was found that 53% of lemon oil, 33% of orange oil, and 38% of mandarin oil samples were contaminated. The mean contamination levels were 7.1 ppm (lemon), 2.5 ppm (orange), and 5.3 ppm (mandarin). The highest concentration of chloroparaffin found was 60 ppm in a lemon oil sample.

In this study, the contamination by chloroparaffin of Sicilian and Calabrian citrus essential oils, produced in the crop years 1994-1996, was investigated. The analyses were carried out on 102 lemon oils, 98 orange oils, and 96 mandarin oils, using a dual-channel GC-ECD. It was found that 53% of lemon oil, 33% of orange oil, and 38% of mandarin oil samples were contaminated. The mean contamination levels were 7.1 ppm (lemon), 2.5 ppm (orange), and 5.3 ppm (mandarin). The highest concentration of chloroparaffin found was 60 ppm in a lemon oil sample.
