DETERMINATION OF SAFROLE CONTENT OF SASSAFRAS OILS

13. DETERMINATION OF SAFROLE CONTENT OF SASSAFRAS OILS

The congealing point of sassafras oils gives a good estimate of the safrole content.
Procedure: Determine the congealing point of the sassafras oil (see p. 253 for details), and estimate the safrole content from Table 4.18.
 TABLE 4.18. CONGEALING POINT AND SAFROLE CONTENT

CONGEALING POINT AND SAFROLE CONTENT

Table 4.18173 will give values of the safrole content with an accuracy of about 2 per cent if the congealing point is above 2.
-------------------------
173 This table was prepared by the laboratories of Fritzsche Brothers, Inc.; it is based on the congealing points of known mixtures of safrole and pinene and safrole and eugenol.
