The research on extraction and refining of oil was conducted on the calamondin peels purchased in Thu Duc Market. Them originated from the province of Tien Giang in Viet Nam. The purpose of research evaluation of the quality of refined oil by refining methods such as deposition/filtration, crystallization - suctioning of oil, using Na2SO4 – filtering of oil, Na2SO4 - suctioning of oil, second extraction and combination all the above methods. The results showed that the initial moisture content of the material was 77.37%, and dry matter content was 8.46%. Extraction at optimum conditions is 60 minutes, 1/8 of raw material / solvent ratio (w / v), with fresh ingredients and raw material size is small at 1 ÷ 3.5 mm the highest oil content was obtained. The essential oil obtained contain a high content of Limonene (over 85%), which has been shown to be able to inhibit breast cancer, colorectal cancer, control heartburn and gastric reflux, and support the treatment of gallstones containing cholesterol.
