Eucalyptus Oil BP Grade
Eucalyptus oil is obtained by steam distillation and rectification from the fresh leaves or the fresh terminal branchlets of various species of Eucalyptus rich in 1,8-cineole. The species mainly used are Eucalyptus globulus Labill., Eucalyptus polybractea R.T. Baker and Eucalyptus smithii R.T. Baker.
A colourless or pale yellow liquid with an aromatic and camphoraceous odour and a pungent and camphoraceous taste.
First identification B.
Second identification A.
A. Examine by thin-layer chromatography using a TLC silica gel plate.
B. Examine the chromatograms obtained in the test for chromatographic profile. The chromatogram obtained with the test solution shows 5 peaks similar in retention time to the 5 peaks in the chromatogram obtained with the reference solution.

Eucalyptus Oil FCC food Grade
Eucalyptus Oil occurs as a colorless or pale yellow liquid with a characteristic, aromatic, somewhat camphoraceous odor and a pungent, spicy, cooling taste. It is the volatile oil obtained by steam distillation from the fresh leaves of Eucalyptus globulus Labillardiere and other species of Eucalyptus L’Heritier (Fam. Myrtaceae).
Function: Flavoring agent.
Identification: The infrared absorption spectrum of the sample exhibits relative maxima at the same wavelengths as those of a typical spectrum as shown in the section on Infrared Spectra, using the same test conditions as specified therein.
Assay: Not less than 70.0% of cineole (C10H18O).
Phellandrene: Passes test.
Refractive Index: Between 1.458 and 1.470 at 20°.
Solubility in Alcohol: Passes test.
Specific Gravity: Between 0.905 and 0.925.
