Abstract

HAYPEK, E. et al. Recovery of aroma compounds from orange essential oil. Braz. J. Chem. Eng. [online]. 2000, vol.17, n.4-7, pp.705-712. ISSN 0104-6632.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-66322000000400034.

The objective of this work was to study the recovery of aroma compounds present in the orange essential oil using experimental data from CUTRALE (a Brazilian Industry of Concentrated Orange Juice). The intention was to reproduce the industrial unit and afterwards to optimize the recovery of aroma compounds from orange essential oil by liquid-liquid extraction. The orange oil deterpenation was simulated using the commercial software PRO/II 4.0 version 1.0. The UNIFAC model was chosen for the calculation of the activity coefficients.

Keywords : UNIFAC; orange oil; simulation; deterpenation.
