Using a dual column gas chromatograph equipped with two capillary columns coated with heptakis(6-O-methyl-2,3-di-O-pentyl)-β-cyclodextrin (6-me-2,3-pe-β-CD) and octakis(6-O-methyl-2,3-di-O-pentyl)-γ-cyclodextrin (6-me-2,3-pe-γ-CD), respectively, all important olefinic monoterpene hydrocarbons occurring in essential oils, including α-thujene, α- and β-pinene, camphene, sabinene, α- and β-phellandrene, Δ-3-carene and limonene can be resolved into enantiomers. With the chromatographic system described the characteristic enantiomeric composition of these monoterpene hydrocarbons in essential oils can be determined.
