<< < (2/2)

Yes, there are several resources available that discuss methods of isolating essential oils from plants like rosemary and utilizing infrared (IR) spectroscopy for analysis. Here are some suggestions:


"Essential Oil Extraction and Analysis: A Detailed Overview" by Lisa Latimer. This book provides comprehensive information on various extraction methods for essential oils, including steam distillation, solvent extraction, and more. It also covers analytical techniques such as IR spectroscopy for the analysis of essential oils.
"Essential Oils Handbook: All the Oils You Will Ever Need for Health, Vitality, and Well-Being" by Jennie Harding. While not specifically focused on extraction methods, this book offers insights into the properties and uses of various essential oils, including rosemary, which can complement your understanding of their extraction and analysis.

The American Oil Chemists' Society (AOCS) website ( offers a range of resources related to essential oil extraction and analysis, including publications, conferences, and technical resources.
The International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) ( provides access to scientific research papers and conference proceedings related to plant extraction techniques and analytical methods such as IR spectroscopy.
Research Papers:

Search academic databases such as PubMed, Google Scholar, or Scopus for research papers on "rosemary essential oil extraction" or "IR spectroscopy analysis of rosemary essential oil." Many research articles delve into specific extraction methods and analytical techniques for essential oils, including IR spectroscopy.
Online Courses or Tutorials:

Look for online courses or tutorials on analytical techniques in chemistry or aromatherapy. Websites like Coursera, edX, or Udemy might offer relevant courses that cover essential oil extraction and analysis using IR spectroscopy.
Professional Organizations:

Explore professional organizations related to analytical chemistry, aromatherapy, or essential oil industries. These organizations often provide educational resources, conferences, and networking opportunities where you can learn more about essential oil extraction and analysis techniques.
By exploring these resources, you should be able to find valuable information on isolating rosemary essential oil and using IR spectroscopy for its analysis.

Yes, nice answer to an 18 years old post , dug out by a newcomer necroposter, probably using ChatGPT to generate reasonably looking answer ;)

LMFAO this was taken from deep in the mines by this bot.

How does anyone make money programming bots to troll forums these days. Reddit or twitter I get, but what money is there to be had here?

Attempts at link spamming - they post, they wait, they edit profile to add link either to the profile or to the signature.

Or they hide link in the text with formatting. chemicalforums

Or they quote your post and add a link somewhere inside the quote.

Both latter techniques present in this post - have you spotted them before I told you?
