Chemical Composition and In Vitro Antibacterial Activity of the Essential Oil of Cedrus atlantica

  title={Chemical Composition and In Vitro Antibacterial Activity of the Essential Oil of Cedrus atlantica},
  author={E. DERWICH and Z. BENZIANE and Abdellatif Boukir},
This work was conducted to determine the phytochemistry and antibacterial activity of the essential oil from leaves of Cedrus atlantica growing in Morocco. The chemical constituents of the essential oil obtained from the leaves of Cedrus atlantica in the Atlas median, mountain region of Morocco was determined by hydro-distillation, analysed by gas chromatography equipped with flame ionisation detector (GC-FID) and gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The antimicrobial… CONTINUE READING
