Abstract:
The volatile oil obtained by hydrodistillation of the petals of Rosa damascena Mill. (Rosaceae) was analyzed by gas chromatography and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry(GC/MS). The yield of the oil was 0.12 % (v/w). Fifty compounds representing 99.06 % of the oil were characterized. The volatile oil was found rich in sesquiterpenes and aliphatic components, consisting of two monoterpenic esters (0.44 %), nineteen sesquiterpenes (44.05 %), twenty nine aliphatic compounds (54.57 %) including n-octadecanol, n-hexacosane, n-octacosane and n-nonacosane (26.31 %).
