The objective of this study was to evaluate the chemical composition, and the trypanocidal and antibacterial activities of the essential oils from four species of Annonaceae: Bocageopsis multiflora (Mart.) R.E.Fr., Duguetia quitarensis Benth., Fusaea longifolia (Aubl.) Saff., and Guatteria punctata (Aubl.) R.A.Howard. The chemical composition of the essential oils from the aerial parts yielded 23, 20, 21 and 23 constituents, respectively, which were identified by GC/MS. The trypanocidal…
