Comprehensive authenticity assessment of lavender oils using multielement/multicomponent isotope ratio mass spectrometry analysis and enantioselective multidimensional gas chromatography–mass spectrometry Jochen Jung, Sabine Sewenig, Uwe Hener and Armin Mosandl Institut für Lebensmittelchemie, Biozentrum J.W. Goethe-Universität, Marie-Curie-Str. 9, 60439 Frankfurt/Main, Germany European Food Research and Technology (2005), V220(2), pp232–237, doi: 10.1007/s00217-004-1049-4 Delta13CV-PDB, delta2HV-SMOW and delta18OV-SMOW multielement isotope ratio mass spectrometry analysis of linalool and linalyl acetate, the main components of lavender oils, is reported. Self-prepared and commercially available lavender oils, as well as samples of linalool and linalyl acetate labelled as synthetic and natural products respectively, were investigated. Multielement/multicomponent isotope ratio mass spectrometry analysis and-as far as possible-in conjunction with enantioselective analysis is judged to be the most comprehensive basis of authenticity assessment in flavour and essential oil analysis.
