Bergamot essential oil is well characterized and is used extensively in many flavours and fragrances. In the present study, the bergamot fruits cultivated in Adana were collected for the isolation of the volatiles in the peels, by microdistillation and headspace-solid phase microextraction (SP-SPME) techniques. The fresh peels of the fruits subjected to microdistillation were analysed by GC and GC-MS systems, simultaneously. In the same time, to trap volatile compounds in the fresh peels HS-SPME technique was employed. As result, limonene (32.9, 36.8%), linalool (37.3, 16.6%) and linalyl acetate (7.8, 30.2%) were identified as the major compounds comparable in the peels obtained by microdistillation and HS-SPME, respectively.
