Author(s): Rajesh Kumar T and Yusuf Akkara
Abstract:
The chemical investigation on volatile oil obtained by hydrodistillation of air dried leaves of Curcuma inodora Blatt. (Zingiberaceae) from Southern india done by GC and GC-MS. The major constituents of the above oils were beta.-Pinene (4.09%), Caryophyllene (31.33%), alpha-caryophyllene (5.97%), Benzofuran (21.29%), gamma.-Elemene (5.18%), alpha.-Bisabolol (2.32%), beta.-Elemenone (3.09%), Ethanone (2.76%), Phytol (3.19%), 1, 6-Cyclodecadiene (4.37%) and Cyclohexane (11.50%). This is the first report on the chemical compounds of the essential oil of this species.
