Abstract Nine samples of essential oil from needles of three conifers of Pinacea family namely Abies pindrow, Picea smithiana and Cedrus deodara collected from three different locations of Himachal Pradesh (India) were evaluated using gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. A total of 31, 17 and 13 compounds were identified from essential oil of A. pindrow, P. smithiana and C. deodara, respectively. Among the characterised components, monoterpenoid hydrocarbons were… 
Composition of the essential oil of Cedrus brevifolia needles Evaluation of its antimicrobial and antioxidant activities
The chemical composition of the previously unknown essential oil of Cedrus brevifolia A. Henry ex Elves & A. Henry (Pinaceae) has been studied. The essential oil of the needles was obtained by
Effect of geographical origin on yield and composition of cone essential oils of Cedrus libani A. Rich. growing in Lebanese protected areas and variability assessment in comparison with literature survey
This current study helped the estimation of a best harvest location for a good EO quality production, resource optimization, and pharmacological properties evaluation, according to the market demand.
Review on essential oils, chemical composition, extraction, and utilization of some conifers in Northwestern Himalayas
The pharmacological studies suggest that these EOs can be used as antirheumatic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, anticancer, anti‐inflammatory, antitoxic, aphrodisiac, and astringent agents.
Effects of Geographical Locations on Essential Oil Composition of Navel Orange Leaves and Flowers
Essential oil (EO) of navel orange (Citrus sinensis) has biological and pharmaceutical properties such as antimicrobial and anticancer and geographical regions resulted in important statistical changes of all components and chemical groups.
Bioautography Guided Isolation and Characterization of Antimicrobial Compounds of Picea smithiana
The present study targeted to explore the antimicrobial constituents of Picea smithiana. It’s essential oil was analyzed by GC-MS and result showed that it has rich content of monoterpene compounds,
Phytochemical and pharmacological properties of essential oils from Cedrus species
The present review gives an overview of the ethnobotany, phytochemistry and pharmacology of the Cedrus genus, e.g. cytotoxic, spasmolytic immunomodulatory, antiallergic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities.
Peel Essential Oils of Citrus Types and Their Antimicrobial Activities in Response to Various Growth Locations
Abstract Citrus peel essential oils (EOs) have various biological activities such as antioxidant, anticancer, and antimicrobial. Growth location (GL) plays a physiological role in the formation of


Chemical Analysis of Volatile Oils from West Himalayan Pindrow Fir Abies pindrow
The essential oil composition of needle and stem oils of Abies pindrow (Royle ex D.Don) Royle, commonly known as Pindrow or West Himalayan Fir, were analyzed by gas chromatography with flame ionization detection (GC-FID), and results were compared with earlier reported fir species from different geographic regions.
Chemical composition, antioxidant, and antimicrobial activities of essential oil from pine needle (Cedrus deodara).
Pine needle essential oil showed remarkable antioxidant activity in scavenging free radicals, in lipid peroxidation, and in reducing power assays, and revealed strong antimicrobial activity against typical food-borne microorganisms.
Chemical composition and insecticidal activities of essential oils against diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutidae)
Five Himalayan plants namely, Acorus calamus, Cedrus deodara, Aegle marmelos, Tagetes minuta and Murraya koenigii were used for the extraction of essential oils and essential oils were tested for their insecticidal properties against larvae of diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutidae).
Antibrowning and antimicrobial activities of the water-soluble extract from pine needles of Cedrus deodara.
The results of the present research suggested that pine needles of C. deodara could be used as a natural resource of antibrowning and antimicrobial agents in food preservation.
Isolation, structural elucidation and in vitro antioxidant activity of compounds from chloroform extract of Cedrus deodara (Roxb.) Loud.
The chloroform extract of C. deodara exhibited significant antioxidant potential mainly due to the presence of sesquiterpenes which may be responsible for various pharmacological activities of this plant.
Interaction of pre-attack and induced monoterpene concentrations in host conifer defense against bark beetle-fungal complexes
Two pine species responded to inoculation with fungi carried by bark beetles by rapidly increasing monoterpene concentrations at the entry site, suggesting that both structural and metabolic fungal properties are important in plant defense.
In vitro anti-cataract evaluation of standardised Abies pindrow leaf extract using isolated goat lenses
The results suggest that the extract under investigation can delay the onset and/or prevent the progression of cataract and may be attributed to the presence of high phenolics and flavonoids in APE.
