Abstract Chemical composition of volatile fractions of nine commercial hydrolats and corresponding essential oils obtained using an industrial process were studied. The hydrolat volatile fractions were reported for the first time. A comparative study of those obtained, on the one hand, by liquid-liquid extraction (LLE) and, on the other hand, using five solid-phase microextraction (SPME) fibers and also purge-and-trap-automatic thermal desorption (P&T-ATD) was conducted with analysis performed by GC and GC/MS. The use of various techniques has resulted in a change of chromatographic profile of the hydrolat volatile fractions. Quantitative differences were established between chemical compositions of headspace and those obtained by a conventional method (LLE). Statistical analyses were carried out to summarize the results.
