The effects of cement dust on the chemical composition of essential oil, lipid peroxidation and antioxidant enzyme activities of Aleppo pine (P. halepensis) needles were studied. Cement dust resulted in a significant decrease in the yield of essential oil with the effect being more pronounced in the close vicinity of the cement factory. A concomitant decrease in all components of the oil was observed and δ-2-carene, trans-carveol, trans-carvyl acetate, α-terpinyl acetate, β-copaene, (E,E… CONTINUE READING
