Trace elements, essential oil yield and its percentage composition were determined by neutron activation analysis, hydrodistillation and gas chromatography in two chemotypes ofOriganum vulgare L. cultivated in the same field. Statistical tests such as analysis of variance, correlation coefficient,t-test, and multiple correlation were applied. The results showed that the samples contain the highest recorded oil yield for aromatic plants. Also, there is a statistically significant difference…

A chemometrics as a powerful tool in the elucidation of the role of metals in the biosynthesis of volatile organic compounds in Hungarian thyme samples.
TLDR
Correlation of Zn with citral, Mn with oxygenated monoterpenes and Mg with β-bourbonene, could be explained by involvement of metals in the biosynthesis of volatile organic compounds.
Chromium levels in spices and aromatic herbs.
TLDR
Electrothermal atomization atomic absorption spectrometry (ETA-AAS) was used to determine Cr content in the samples mineralized with HNO3 and V2O5 and the accuracy and precision was verified against an NBS-certified reference material.
Thymol, thyme, and other plant sources: Health and potential uses
TLDR
Thymol exhibits antimicrobial, antioxidant, anticarcinogenesis, anti‐inflammatory, and antispasmodic activities, as well as a potential as a growth enhancer and immunomodulator; these bioactivities have been covered.
Aluminium levels in spices and aromatic herbs.
TLDR
The levels of aluminium were evaluated in a total of 72 samples of 17 different spices and aromatic herbs that are widely consumed in Spain, and in the Mediterranean diet, in general, using electrothermal atomization atomic absorption spectroscopy as the analytical technique.

Oxidation reactions of thymol: a pulse radiolysis and theoretical study.
TLDR
The reactions of (•)OH and O(•-), with thymol, a monoterpene phenol and an antioxidant, were studied by pulse radiolysis technique and DFT calculations at B3LYP/6-31+G(d,p) level of theory, and theoretical calculations showed that C4 atom inThymol (para position) can also be the reaction center as it is the main contributor of HOMO.
