Volatile Compounds in Citrus Essential Oils: A Comprehensive Review

Abstract: The essential oil fraction obtained from the rind of Citrus spp. is rich in chemical compounds of interest for the food and perfume industries, and therefore has been extensively studied during the last decades. In this manuscript, we provide a comprehensive review of the volatile composition of this oil fraction and rind extracts for the 10 most studied Citrus species: C. sinensis (sweet orange), C. reticulata (mandarin), C. paradisi (grapefruit), C. grandis (pummelo), C. limon (lemon), C. medica (citron), C.… Show more

“…There were abundant volatile compounds in citrus fruit. Lots of reports have mainly focused on the determination of volatile compounds and the comparison of the number and content of them in a few citrus germplasms [8,13,21,[24][25][26][27]. As different citrus species may have a unique aroma, the profiles of volatiles have been used to study citrus chemotaxonomy [8,24,25].…”

“…4R-Limonene, a colorless cyclic monoterpene, is the major constituent (30-95%) of the Citrus essential oil contained in the fruit's outer peel [276]. Several methods have been developed to extract efficiently Citrus essential oil, such as hydro-distillation, cold-press, instant controlled pressure drop, and steam explosion [277].…”

“…It is worth noting that thymol was identified in all exocarps and in the pulp of HY-ZM, which is different from a recent review that described that thymol had not been reported in C. grandis. [31] Recently, thymol was shown to have antifungal, anticancer, antibacterial and hepatoprotective activities. [32][33][34][35] Thus, thymol can be used to inhibit oral bacteria and as an antioxidant in food preservation.…”
