Abstract: The essential oil of key time (Citrus aurantifolia) was obtained by steam distillation at normal conditions (1.0 bar/25 degrees C) with steam at 110 degrees C, during 10h. The GC analysis identified about 10 main substances, being limonene, p-cymene, myrcene and beta-bisabolene the most significant compounds. Aldehyde content increased significantly during distillation time (upper phase). After 10h of process, oil has presented more than 3% of aldehydes content due to oxidative reactions.
