Tobacco in Sichuan, Guizhou, and Fujian was selected as raw materials, and the essential oil of tobacco was extracted by distillation in water. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry(GC-MS) was used to analyze the composition and content of tobacco essential oil from different production areas, and the influences of different production areas on the yield and composition of the product were compared. The results showed that the average yields of tobacco from Fujian, Sichuan, and Guizhou were 0.139 1%, 0.085 1%, and 0.107 5%, respectively, and the corresponding contents of neophytadiene were 39.86%, 36.12%, and 44.88%, respectively. According to the comparison analysis, the tobacco produced in Fujian had the highest oil yield and moderate characteristic aroma; the tobacco essential oil produced in Guizhou had moderate oil yield, prominent tobacco aroma, and obvious licorice aroma; the tobacco essential oil produced in Sichuan had the highest oil yield, and weaker aroma.

Key words: steam distillation, tobacco, GC-MS, essential oil
