  author={Manzoor Ahmad Rather and Tauheeda Hassan and Bilal Ahmad Dar and Abdul Sami Shawl and Mushtaq Ahmad Qurishi and Bashir Ahmad Ganai},
The essential oil composition of the aerial parts of Nepeta raphanorhiza is reported for the first time. Capillary GC-FID & GC-MS analysis of the essential oil led to the identification of 16 components accounting for 97.5% of the total oil. Sesquiterpene hydrocarbons dominated the oil composition accounting for 65.3 % followed by monoterpene hydrocarbons constituting 19.5 % of the total oil composition. The major c omponents were (Z) -βfarnesene (49.2%), δ-3-carene (12.3%), α-bisabolene (9.4… Expand
