ABSTRACT
Dried leaves of peppermint were used as a matrix for supercritical CO2 extraction of essential oil. An extraction vessel of 1.5 L and two separators of 0.25 L were used to carry out studies at 50˚C and 80 bar. The essential oil was analyzed by GC-MS and its composition was compared with that of the oil obtained by hydrodistillation.
