Abstract The essential oil from the aerial parts of Salvia leucantha Cav. (Lamiaceae) was analyzed by GC, GC/MS and NMR spectroscopy. The oil was found rich in sesquiterpene hydrocarbons; β-caryophyllene (13.9%), α-guaiene (12.6%), cis-muurola-3,5-diene (10.8%), germacrene D (13.8%) and bicyclogermacrene (8.7%). Bornyl acetate constituted 23.9% of the oil. This is the first detailed report on the essential oil composition based on capillary GC and GC/MS analyses. 

The Volatile Constituents of Salvia leucantha

Salvia leucantha Cav. (Lamiaceae), native to Mexico, is found in Venezuela in parks and gardens. Hydrodistillation of the fresh leaves of this plant yielded 0.05% of essential oil. GC and GC/MS

Terpenoid Composition and Antimicrobial Activity of the Essential Oil from Salvia nubicola Wall ex Sweet.

The essential oil of Salvia nubicola Wall ex Sweet showed activity against tested bacterial and fungal strains used, and which was found comparable with the standard antibiotics used for comparison.

Chemical Composition and Antibacterial Activity of Essential oil from Salvia mukerjeei

Steam volatile oil from aerial parts of Salvia mukerjeei Bennet & Raizada (Lamiaceae) was analyzed by capillary GC and GCMS and was active against Enterococcus faecalis, Erwinia chrysanthemi and Agrobacterium tumefaciens.

Selective BuChE Inhibitory Activity, Chemical Composition, and Enantiomeric Content of the Essential Oil from Salvia leucantha Cav. Collected in Ecuador

In an in vitro assay, the essential oil demonstrated an interesting inhibitory activity of the enzyme butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE), with an IC50 = 32.60 µg/mL, which is the highest determined for a Salvia species.

Composición química del aceite esencial de flores De Salvia leucantha Cav. (Lamiaceae)

The essential oil (ae) in Salvia Leucantha Cav. flowers was extracted by steam distillation with a yield of 0.16%. To determine the composition of the S. leucantha Cav. essential oil, the authors

Microdistillation and Analysis of Volatiles from Eight Ornamental Salvia Taxa

The microdistillation method was fast, practical and a useful technique that enabled the isolation of the volatiles in samples when only limited quantities were available.

Composition and Antimicrobial Activity of Salvia amplexicaulis Lam. Essential Oil

The microbial growth inhibitory properties of the herb essential oil was determined against Gram-positive bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, St. epidermidis, Micrococcus luteus, and Gram-negative bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli and a yeast Candida albicans.

Factors Affecting Biomass Growth and Production of Essential Oil from Leaf and Flower of Salvia leucantha Cav.

Investigation of factors affecting biomass growth and production of essential oils from leaf and flower of Salvia leucantha Cav.

Chemical composition and biological activity of four salvia essential oils and individual compounds against two species of mosquitoes.

All essential oils showed larvicidal activity except that of S. apiana, which was inactive at the highest dose of 125 ppm against both mosquito species, and all of the essential oil showed higher toxicity in Anopheles quadrimaculatus than in Aedes aegypti.



Composition of the essential oils of five Salvia species

ABSTRACT From the genus Salvia (Labiatae) the essential oil composition of five species is reported: S. canariensis L., S. confertiflora Pohl, S. cfr. mexicana L., S. microphylla H.B.K. (syn. S.

Chemical Compositions of Two Wild Species of the Genus Salvia L. from Yugoslavia: Salvia aethiopis and Salvia verticillata

Two wild Salvia species found in Yugoslavia were compared and both oils contained β-caryophyllene as main constituent, but differed by the presence of germacrene D and Caryophyllenes oxide in the first, and γ-muurolene and trans-chrysanthenol in the second.

The Essential Oil of Salvia gilliesii Benth.

ABSTRACT The hydrodistilled essential oil of Salvia gilliesii Benth. was studied by GC and GC/MS. Thirty-nine compounds representing 89.56% of the oil were characterized. Major constituents of the
