ROMERO, Carlos R; JORGE, Nelly L  and  GOMEZ, Manuel E. Characterization of Ilex Paraguariensis using Gas Chromatography of the Volatile Components. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2006, vol.17, n.2, pp.3-6. ISSN 0718-0764.

The volatile compounds of the leaves of Ilex Paraguariensis have been studied by gas chromatographic using a capillary column with phenylmethylsilicone as stationary phase, to contribute to its chemotaxonomic characterization. Two methods of extraction of volatile components were evaluated: steam distillation and Static Headspace Analysis (HSA). The HSA technique is the most suitable to differentiate and characterize plant species by gas chromatographic analysis of their volatile components.

Keywords : Ilex paraguariensis; gas chromatography; chemotaxonomic characterization; HSA.
