Abstract

The oxygen heterocyclic compounds (coumarins, psoralens and polymethoxylated flavones) present in the nonvolatile residue of the essential oils of Mandarin, Sweet Orange, Bitter Orange, Bergamot and Grapefruit were analysed with an HPLC/API/MS system equipped with an APcI probe in positive mode. The use of hyphenated techniques, such as LC/MS provides a great information about the content and nature of constituents of natural complex matrices, such as essential oils. In this work, MS spectra were recorded at different voltages, to obtain structural information in addition to molecular weight information. The different response of the compounds identified has been also evaluated. The method allowed the confirmation of the identification of the main components of the fraction, previously reported for the different oils. MS characteristics of coumarins, psoralens and polymethoxylated flavones with different substitution patterns were determined on the basis of the response obtained with the APcI interface. Interface parameters were optimised to obtain a contemporaneous response for all the three classes of components.
