dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to explore whether the concentration of limonene on orange peels is affected by the species or geographical location. Extraction of limonene from oranges was achieved via steam distillation of the well – divided orange peels and the amounts of limonene from the crude extract determined using gas chromatographic (GC) technique. The effects of species as well as the region where the oranges are grown were evident on the different amounts of limonene obtained from the oranges peels.en_US
