Ionic liquids and fragrances – direct isolation of orange essential oil

Author affiliations

Abstract

We present the dissolution of fresh fragrance biomass in ionic liquids for the isolation of essential oils and compare direct distillation with solvent extraction. Orange essential oil was distilled from orange peels dissolved in ionic liquid media, thus allowing a simple, efficient, and mild isolation of fragrance and flavor components with complete recovery of the ionic liquid.
