PRELIMINARY STUDIES ON THE VOLATILE OIL CONTENT OF HERBAL AND THE MENTHOL PEPPERMINT (MENTHA PIPERITA L.) UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF FERTILIZATION IN MINERAL LOVRIN PUBLISHEDOvidiu PĂTRUI, Valeriu Tabara
Abstract: Peppermint is one of the oldest herbs known. Peppermint is an herb well known for its medicinal properties, but also for refreshing flavor. Given the fact that fertilization is one of the measures which, when applied properly, herba increase production and oil content and hence its quality, more research is carried out lately have focused on identifying the optimal formula aceasta.Uleiul is a valuable part of the volatile composition of herba and foil at the mint. The quality of healing depends on the quality of the finished product that is found in almost all health and beauty products. Calculation of volatile oil production has been achieved in relation to the production of herba mint. The essential oil obtained from the Mentha piperita L. herba, has numerous applications in medicine due to antibacterial properties, antiviral and cytotoxic essential oil, fragrance oil and antioxidant properties make it to be used in food and beverage industry. In England, as in the rest of Europe, peppermint is used almost exclusively for sweet and sweet liqueurs where her pungent fresh and refreshing counterbalance to the sweetness of sugar properties. For these purposes, the use of pure essential oil is preferred to avoid the bitter astringent notes of peppermint leaves. Peppermint freshness fits extremely well with chocolate. Peppermint ice cream is delicious on a warm summer day, because it uses soft properties of menthol. Peppermint is grown in many countries in Europe and Central and West Asia for the production of menthol, which is necessary in pharmaceutical preparations. In most of these countries entered peppermint local cuisine, replacing the local varieties menta.Studiul aims to enrich knowledge on the role of technology features cultivation mint (Mentha piperita L.) with their achievement of improved performance ; to achieve a high production of essential oil of a high quality, thus contributing to the possibility of extending the study of areas of cultivation with mint. Experience has been located on land belonging Lovrin. Experience is the type bifactorial with annual repetition. The biological material used was Columna variety, the seed being applied organic and mineral certificată.Îngrăşămintele mint culture, increased production of essential oil and menthol in fherba. The content of active substances, the determination of volatile oil content of mint and menthol, was monitored in the laboratories SC Fares Vital Bio Laboratories LLC Drastic, (ISO 9001: 2000). Variation of volatile oil content and the content of menthol in fherba (Mentha piperita L.) vary depending on the influence of fertilization. The results of this study are part of a PhD program, having as theme: "Development of cultivation technology of mint (Mentha piperita L.) in conditions of Lovrin"under the leadership of the distinguished university professor Valeriu Tabără.
