CRC Press, 27.10.2015 - 1112 Seiten

The second edition of Handbook of Essential Oils: Science, Technology, and Applications provides a much-needed compilation of information related to the development, use, and marketing of essential oils. It focuses particularly on the chemistry, pharmacology, and biological activities of essential oils, with contributions from a worldwide group of expert authorities on their historical, biological, regulatory, and biotransformation aspects.

Features in the Second Edition:

  • New chapters on the natural variability of components that often occurs in essential oils and on the natural processes that cause adulteration of essential oils
  • Revisions, updates, and expansions of previous chapters
  • Splits a previous chapter on biological activities of essential oils into two separate chapters on biological activities and antioxidative properties

The book covers a wide range of areas applicable to essential oils research, including sources, production, analysis, storage, transport, chemistry, aromatherapy, pharmacology, toxicology, metabolism, technology, biotransformation, application, utilization, and trade. It includes discussions of biological activity testing, results of antimicrobial and antioxidant tests, and penetration-enhancing activities useful in drug delivery.

A continuation of its preceding edition that features enhanced and expanded information, the second edition of Handbook of Essential Oils provides you with a broad and authoritative knowledge base in the study and use of essential oils.
