Typical G.C. analysis

salvia lavandulifolia spp. vellerea oil spain
In 1993, Fournier et al. used GC and GC/MS to analyze eight commercial samples of Spanish sage oil. The components identified in seven of these oils were shown. The other oil, which probably originated from S. lavandulaefolia ssp. vellerea, was found to possess the following composition:
200.8  borneol
151.1  bornyl acetate
35.7  camphene
1233.1  camphor
160.8beta- caryophyllene
230.2  caryophyllene oxide
815.21,8- cineole
101.1para- cymene
220.2  geraniol
74.1  limonene
131.6  linalool
141.1  linalyl acetate
61.6  myrcene
24.5alpha- pinene
43.1beta- pinene
51.1  sabinene
1812.8(Z)- sabinyl acetate
170.5  terpinen-4-ol
90.1gamma- terpinene
190.4alpha- terpineol
110.1  terpinolene
215.8alpha- terpinyl acetate
10.1alpha- thujene
