Abstract

The possibility of revealing adulteration of bergamot oil, as of any other citrus cold-pressed essential oil, is mainly linked to the development and use of spectroscopic and chromatographic analytical techniques. This chapter will review applications to this fi eld such as ultraviolet spectroscopy (UV), thin layer chromatography (TLC), high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography (GC) with conventional and chiral columns, and the coupled and multidimensional chromatographic techniques with classic detectors and mass spectrometer (conventional and isotopic mass spectrometers). Infrared spectrometry (IR), seldom applied to the analysis of bergamot oil and with unsatisfactory results, and paper chromatography will also be discussed.
