Quality Standard

The essential oil of Leptospermum scoparium β-triketone Type is produced by distillation of the aerial parts of the β-triketone chemotype of Leptospermum scoparium.

Leptospermum scoparium grows naturally in coastal regions of south-east Australia and broadly throughout New Zealand’s North and South islands. It occurs with at least three chemotypes (Perry, 1997), one of which is high in beta -triketone content. β-triketone are a class of molecules found uncommonly in essential oils but more frequently in essential oils derived from myrtaceous species. They are structurally distinct from terpenes being derived from phloroglucinol.



These standards have been developed with funding from AgriFutures Australia under project PRJ-011798 Developing Industry Standards for Australian Native Oils
