Abstract The essential oils of the leaves, flowers and rhizomes of Alpinia zerumbet (Pers.), A. purpurata (Viell.), Hedychium coronarium König, and H. gardnerianum Lindl. species growing wild in Fiji were obtained by steam distillation and analyzed by GC/MS. The rhizome and leaf oils of A. zerumbet were found to be rich in β-pinene (4.0%, 10.0%), 1,8-cineole (28.1%, 13.2%) and terpinen-4-ol (41.4%, 40.9%), respectively. The rhizome oils of A. purpurata contained α-pinene (24.9–36.1%) and… 

Chemical Composition of the Leaf Oils of Alpinia zerumbet (Pers.) Burtt et Smith and A. purpurata (Vieill) K. Schum. From Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Abstract Firesh leaves of Alpinia zerumbet and A. purpurata (Zingiberaceae) were collected in Rio de Janeiro city and subjected to hydrodistillation; their chemical composition was analyzed by GC/MS.

Composition of Leaf and Rhizome Essential Oils of Hedychium coronarium Koen. from Brazil

Abstract Hydrodistillation of fresh leaves and rhizomes of Hedychium coronarium collected in the Atlantic rain forest of southeastern Brazil afforded essential oils in 0.68% and 0.20% yields,

Chemical Composition and Trypanocidal Activity of the Essential Oils from Hedychium coronarium J. Koenig (Zingiberaceae)

TLDR
The composition of the essential oils from leaves and rhizomes of Hedychium coronarium was analyzed both by gas chromatography and gas Chromatography-mass spectroscopy and caryophyllene oxide revealed a remarkable activity against both T. brucei and procyclic forms of Trypanosoma Brucei.

Composition of essential oils of four Hedychium species from Vietnam

TLDR
Ubiquitous monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes were identified as characteristic markers for Hedychium species and are of great importance for the evaluation of HedyChium essential oils grown in Vietnam.

An overview of the chemical composition and biological activities of essential oils from Alpinia genus (Zingiberaceae)

TLDR
In this review, the comprehensive information regarding the volatile components of various Alpinia plants, the bioactivities of Alpinsia essential oils and their major compounds are provided.

Comparative Study on Volatile Compounds of Alpinia japonica and Elettaria cardamomum.

TLDR
The volatile compounds obtained from the ether extracts, headspace gases and steam distillates of Alpinia japonica and Elettaria cardamomum were analyzed by GC/MS and the distributions of volatile sesquiterpenoids were very poor in both species.
