Abstract

ALBUQUERQUE, Marcos L. S. et al. Characterization of Buriti (Mauritia flexuosa L.) oil by absorption and emission spectroscopies. J. Braz. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2005, vol.16, n.6a, pp. 1113-1117. ISSN 0103-5053.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-50532005000700004.

Oil samples obtained from Buriti (Mauritia flexuosa L.) palm tree fruits were characterized by absorption and emission spectroscopies. The absorption spectrum was recorded in the range from 300 to 2000 nm, while the emission spectrum was analyzed between 400 and 800 nm, where several bands were observed. To better understand these complex spectra, we recorded both absorption and emission spectra of its major components. By correlating these data, we present a discussion on the possible origin of the bands observed.

Keywords : vegetable oil; Mauritia flexuosa; absorption and emission spectra.
