[Fast determination of volatile components in rhizoma curcuma by headspace gas chromatography-mass spectrometry].Zhong Yao Cai. 2010 Nov; 33(11):1732-6.ZY
To analyze the chemical constituents of essential oil extracted from Rhizoma Curcumae.
Headspace-GC/MS was employed to prepare essential oil from rhizome curcuma, with TR-5 quartz capillary column, extraction temperature 90 degrees C, hold 30 min, injection volume 1.5 mL.
A rapid, simple and reliable method using HS-GC/MS was developed to analyze 79 volatile components, which can be an alternative for quality control for TCMs such as Rhizome Curcuma.
