The study aimed to find the best trade-off between separation of the most critical peak pair and analysis time, in enantioselective GC–FID and GC–MS analysis of lavender essential oil, using the GC methodtranslation approach. Analysis conditions were first optimized for conventional 25m×0.25mm inner diameter (dc) column coated with 6I–VII-O-tert-butyldimethylsilyl-2I–VII-3I–VII-O-ethyl--cyclodextrin (CD) as chiral stationary phase (CSP) diluted at30%in PS086 (polymethylphenylpolysiloxane,15%phenyl), starting from routine analysis. The optimal multi-rate temperature program for a pre-set column pressure was determined and then used to find the pressures producing the efficiency-optimized flow (EOF) and speed-optimized flow (SOF). This method was transferred to a shorter narrow-bore (NB) column (11m×0.10mm) using method-translation software, keeping peak elution order and separation. Optimization of the enantioselective GC method with the translation approach markedly reduced the analysis time of the lavender essential oil, from about 87 min with the routine method to 40 min with an optimal multi-rate temperature program and initial flow with a conventional inner diameter column, and to 15 min with FID as detector or 13.5 min with MS with a corresponding narrow-bore column, while keeping enantiomer separation and efficiency.

Abstract

The study aimed to find the best trade-off between separation of the most critical peak pair and analysis time, in enantioselective GC–FID and GC–MS analysis of lavender essential oil, using the GC methodtranslation approach. Analysis conditions were first optimized for conventional 25m×0.25mm inner diameter (dc) column coated with 6I–VII-O-tert-butyldimethylsilyl-2I–VII-3I–VII-O-ethyl--cyclodextrin (CD) as chiral stationary phase (CSP) diluted at30%in PS086 (polymethylphenylpolysiloxane,15%phenyl), starting from routine analysis. The optimal multi-rate temperature program for a pre-set column pressure was determined and then used to find the pressures producing the efficiency-optimized flow (EOF) and speed-optimized flow (SOF). This method was transferred to a shorter narrow-bore (NB) column (11m×0.10mm) using method-translation software, keeping peak elution order and separation. Optimization of the enantioselective GC method with the translation approach markedly reduced the analysis time of the lavender essential oil, from about 87 min with the routine method to 40 min with an optimal multi-rate temperature program and initial flow with a conventional inner diameter column, and to 15 min with FID as detector or 13.5 min with MS with a corresponding narrow-bore column, while keeping enantiomer separation and efficiency.
