The chemical composition of the volatile oils obtained from the roots, leaves, flowers, and stems of Thapsia garganica of Tunisian origin was investigated by GC-FID and GC/MS analyses. Sesquiterpene hydrocarbons and oxygenated monoterpenes were predominant in the oils of all plant parts. Bicyclogermacrene (21.59-35.09%) was the main component in the former compound class, whereas geranial (3.31-14.84%) and linalool (0.81-10.9%) were the most prominent ones in the latter compound class… CONTINUE READING
