Composition... Lemon oil contains about 90% monoterpene hydrocarbons composed mainly of – Limonene (70-81%), with lesser amounts of α pinene-5%, β pinene-5%, γ- terpinene , sabinene , and myrcene . 2–6% aldehydes [mainly Citral , Neral and Geranial] 0.3-2% alcohols and esters (linalool, octanol , nonanol , decanol , terpinen-4-ol, α- terpineol , geraniol , neryl acetate, geranyl acetate, etc.) Small amounts of sesquiterpenes ( bisabolene , α- bergamotene , and caryophyllene ) waxes.
