The essential oils from the aerial parts of Pimpinella anagodendron Bolle and Pimpinella rupicola Svent., two endemic species growing in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain, were studied by gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The major components of the flowering tops (flowers+unripe fruits) of P. rupicola (PRFT) were found to be(More)
The essential oil of the leaves and stems of Meum athamanticum Jacq., has been extracted by steam distillation and analysed by gas chromatography (GC) and gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The monoterpene fraction was predominant while the sesquiterpene one was practically absent. The principal constituents have been identified as(More)
The essential oil from the different parts (inflorescences, stems + leaves and roots) of Eryngium glaciale Boiss. gathered in Sierra Nevada (Spain) has been extracted by steam distillation and analysed by gas chromatography and gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry. Quantitative but not qualitative differences have been found between the analysed(More)
The essential oil from the different parts (inflorescences, stems+leaves and roots) of E. corniculatum Lam. gathered in Guadalajara (Spain) has been extracted by steam distillation and analysed by gas chromatography and gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry. Quantitative and qualitative differences have been found between the analysed parts,(More)
The essential oil from the aerial parts of Pimpinella junoniae Ceb. & Ort., growing in La Gomera, Canary Islands, Spain, was studied by gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, and 43 constituents were identified. The major components were found to be alpha-zingiberene (20.6%), alpha-pinene (17.9%), (E)-beta-farnesene (9.3%),(More)
The essential oil of Ageratina adenophora Spreng., growing in the Canary Islands was analyzed by GC-MS. A total of 78 volatile compounds was identified and p-cymene (11.6%) was the major component in the oil. The sesquiterpene fraction (44.3%) was higher than the monoterpene one (32.1%).
The volatiles from the fruits of Ammodaucus leucotrichus subsp. leucotrichus and subsp. nanocarpus (two endemic species, the first from North Africa and the second from the Canary Islands, Spain) were studied by gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The major components of the volatiles of subsp. nanocarpus were found to be,(More)
Folk medicines are gaining great importance as information sources on traditional medicinal plants. The aim of this paper is the study of a plant traditionally employed by the Puna inhabitants: Werneria poposa Phil. Morphology of its secretory tissue and other histological diagnostic features, as well as the chemical composition of its essential oil, is(More)
The essential oil from the aerial parts of Rutheopsis herbanica (Bolle) Hans. & Kunk., growing in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, Spain, was studied by gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, and 42 constituents were identified. The major components were found to be alpha-pinene (29.4%), dillapiole (21.3%), limonene (14.1%), beta-pinene(More)
The volatile constituents of the essential oil of Argyranthemum adauctum (Link.) Humphries extracted by steam distillation have been studied by GC-MS. A total of 60 compounds have been identified representing the 89.8% of the oil. The major constituents were found to be beta-pinene (27.4%) and santolinatriene (22.6%). This is the first report on the(More)
