The Application of Headspace Solid-phase Microextraction as a Preparation Approach for Gas Chromatography with Mass Spectrometry

I. Jerković, Z. Marijanović, A. Radonić, M. Zekić and M. Kranjac


Reviewed in brief are the selected results of the application of headspace solid-phase microextraction as a preparative approach for gas chromatography – mass spectrometry (HS-SPME/GC-MS) for natural organic compounds research at the University of Split, Faculty of Chemistry and Technology. A wide variety of headspace compounds from different natural sources has been identified: lower aliphatic compounds (e.g., C5- and C6-compounds), aromatic compounds, monoterpenes (e.g., linalool derivatives (oxides, anhydro-oxides, epoxides), hotrienol), sesquiterpenes (e.g., eudesmol isomers, hydrocarbons), and C9- and C13-norisoprenoids (e.g., 3,4-dihydro-3-oxoedulan, 4-oxoisophorone, trans-β-damascenone). These compounds are important phytochemicals as flavour/fragrance compounds, chemical markers of the botanical origin or others (e.g., allelochemicals, pheromones, or acaricide residue).
