Essential Oils of Myrtle (Myrtus communis L.) of the Mediterranean Littoral
The chemical compositions of 15 commercial samples of essential oils of leaves of Myrtus communis L. from five different Mediterranean locations were studied and can be compared to those of Spanish oils. Expand
Qualitative and Quantitative Variation in Monoterpene Co-Occurrence and Composition in the Essential Oil of Thymus vulgaris Chemotypes
The quantitative variation among T. vulgaris populations in the percentage of oil composed of the dominant monoterpene(s) for each chemotype suggests that a plant with dominant genes is responsible for the production of different monoterpenes can produce several molecules. Expand

  • 1 January 2008
The inhibition effect of rosemary oil was investigated against Alternaria alternata, Botrytis cinerea and Fusarium oxysporum using disc diffusion and the extent of inhibition of fungal growth varied depending on the levels of essential oil used in experiment. Expand
Effect of different locations on the chemical composition of essential oils of laurel (Laurus nobilis L.) leaves growing wild in Turkey.
The essential oil components of Laurusnobilis gathered from seven different locations of Turkey were identified by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry and the 1,8-cineole content of these oils was significantly higher than those of other constituents of L. nobilis. Expand
An ethnobotanical and phytochemical study of the African medicinal plant Guiera senegalensis J. F. Gmel
An ethnobotanical survey and phytochemical screening of the Sudano-Sahelian species Guiera senegalensis confirmed the results of earlier work and should provide new potential medicines for the phytotherapeutic arsenal. Expand
Aromatic Plants of Mali (IV): Chemical Composition of Essential Oils of Cymbopogon citratus (DC) Stapf and C. giganteus (Hochst.) Chiov.
Abstract The composition of the essential oils of Cymbopogon citratus and C. giganteus from Mali and the Ivory Coast were determined by GC and GC/MS, and they were found to contain 19 and 27Expand
Comparative essential oil composition and antifungal effect of bitter fennel (Foeniculum vulgare ssp. piperitum) fruit oils obtained during different vegetation.
Fennel oils exhibited different degrees of fungistatic activity depending on the doses, and exerted varying levels of antifungal effects on the experimental mycelial growth of Alternaria alternata, Fusarium oxysporum, and Rhizoctonia solani. Expand
A Study on the Composition of Commercial Vetiveria zizanioides Oils from Different Geographical Origins
Hierarchical clustering and principal component analysis (PCA) of the compositional data of the oil samples confirm the relative homogeneity of V. zizanioides by the content of major constituents (khusimol,β-vetivenene and β-vetispirene). Expand
Essential Oils of Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.). The Chemical Composition of Oils of Various Origins (Morocco, Spain, France)
ABSTRACT The chemical composition of the essential oil of rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis L.) from various geographical origins (Morocco, Spain and France) was determined by GC/MS. Although 48Expand
Chemical Composition of the Essential Oil from Rhizomes, Leaves and Flowers of Zingiber zerumbet Smith from Reunion Island
Abstract Sixty-nine constituents were identified in essential oil from the rhizomes, leaves and flowers of Zingiberzerumbet Smith from Reunion Island. The oils were obtained by steam distillation.Expand
