Riassunto:  Lavender, sage, rosemary, fennel seed and clove bud essential oils (EOs) were isolated using a microwave assisted Clevenger-type device, where the microwaves are applied by means of a coaxial antenna and by conventional hydrodistillation (HD). The yield and chemical composition of EOs were analyzed as a function of the microwave (MW) extraction time. A complete chemical characterization was performed by gas chromatography (GC) and gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis. The analysis of the thermal behavior and stability of the EO were performed by thermogravimetry (TG) and thermogravimetry coupled to infrared spectrometry (TG-FTIR). Thermal analysis showed that the EO thermal behavior is described by the evaporation of its main compounds. The most volatile EO was the rosemary, while clove EO was the most thermally stable. The coaxial MWHD extraction leads to a high concentration of oxygenated monoterpenes, different product selectivity, energy savings, and reductions in heating time compared to the EO obtained by conventional HD. The coaxial antenna method allows the scale-up to industrial level without any limit of power and size.
