Abstract
Volatile components of two cultivars of avocado fruits (California and Haas ) were isolated by simultaneous steam distillation/solvent extraction. Both cultivars had 227 and 289 mu g/kg of total volatile compounds, respectivel y. Major components were (E)-nerolidol, with lesser amounts of beta-caryoph yllene, beta-pinene, trans-alpha-bergamotene and beta-bisabolene.
