Characterization and Antimicrobial Activity of Patchouli Essential Oil Extracted From Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth. (lamiaceae)

  title={Characterization and Antimicrobial Activity of Patchouli Essential Oil Extracted From Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth. (lamiaceae)},
  author={A. Karimi},
The physico-chemical properties of Philippine patchouli oil, hydro-distilled from fresh leaves and young shoots of Pogostemon cablin were characterized and found to be within the specifications set by the United States Essential Oils Society. Philippine patchouli oil and commercial patchouli oil have the same major components as shown by GC-MS analyses: patchouli alcohol, d-guaiene, a-guaiene, a-patchoulene, seychellene, [3-patchoulene, and transcaryophylene, with slightly lower concentrations… Expand

Bioactivity of selected plant essential oils against listeria monocytogenes
Strong anti‐Listeria activity was often correlated with essential oils containing a high percentage of monoterpenes, eugenol, cinnamaldehyde, thymol, and sometimes with citronellol, limonene and geraniol, but there was also a difference in activity between different samples of the same essential oil.

The diverse sesquiterpene profile of patchouli, Pogostemon cablin, is correlated with a limited number of sesquiterpene synthases.
Interestingly, the yield of the different in vitro reaction products resembles quantitatively and qualitatively the profile of sesquiterpenes found in patchouli oil extracted from plants, suggesting that a single terpene synthase is responsible for the bulk and diversity of terPene products produced in planta.
