The essential oils extracted from Coriandrum sativum L. were analyzed by GC-MS coupled with chemometric resolution methods. Through the chemometric resolution methods, peak clusters were uniquely resolved into the pure chromatographic profiles and mass spectra of each component. Qualitative analysis was performed by comparing the pure mass spectra with those in the NIST 05 mass spectral library. Quantitative analysis was performed using the total volume integration method. A total of 118 constituents were detected, of which 104 were identified, accounting for 97.27% of the total content. The results indicate that GC-MS combined with chemometric resolution methods can greatly enhance the capability of separation and the reliability of qualitative and quantitative results. The combined method is an economical and accurate approach for the rapid analysis of the complex essential oil samples in Coriandrum sativum L.
