So you are taught the importance of obtaining a GC/MS report with your essential oils, then what? What does it tell you? What should you look for? How can it benefit your essential oil selection?

In this 2-day workshop, Dr. Satyal and Aaron Sorensen from the Aromatic Plant Research Center will discuss these questions and more. You'll learn how to interpret a GC/MS report and how adulteration takes place

Learning Objectives:

  • What is Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry and how to read a GC/MS report?
  • How to categorize EO components by classes?
  • What is adulteration and what are the types of adulteration?
  • Trends in EO adulteration and how to overcome?
  • Instruments applied in adulteration detection (Isotope ratio, GCMS, SNIF NMR, Chiral GC/MS, Physical constants, etc)?
  • How to detect carrier oil based adulteration?
  • How to detect synthetic compound based adulteration?
  • What are synthetic markers and biomarkers, what is the importance of them in adulteration detection?
  • Is mislabeling also adulteration?
  • How to detect adulteration if natural isolate has been added which can pass C14 test or chirality test?
  • Is adulteration crime or necessity?
  • What is the impact of adulteration to aroma, farmers, and end users.
  • How to confirm origin of the oils?
  • Why is chemometric based adulteration detection more important than ISO or AFNOR ranges?
  • What is chiral GC/MS and its limitations?
