Multidimensional Gas Chromatography with Advanced Mass Spectrometry for Phytoanalysis of Plant Essential Oil

posted on 15.06.2017, 02:30 by YONG FOO WONG
This thesis describes the method development and application for targeted and/or untargeted analysis of a diverse range of plant secondary compounds in a range of plant essential oils (agarwood, tea tree, copaiba, and eucalyptus). Techniques used for analysis include advanced multidimensional gas chromatography (MDGC), hyphenated with either unit mass or high resolution mass spectrometry (MS). The thesis outcomes provides an extension of existing information for practical studies using MDGC-MS detection methods for plant-derived extracts. This thesis also highlights the opportunities for future developments in high resolution methods for the analysis of plant secondary compounds.
