Some citrus essential oils were analyzed by HPLC with both microbore and standard columns in reversed and normal phase. Volatile and non-volatile fraction were investigated. In the non-volatile fraction some coumarins have been identified. Fractions are detected spectrophotometrically at 220 nm and 320 nm before and after evaporation of samples. Some components were also identified by LC/MS.
