1-Nitro-2-phenylethane dominates the chemical composition of the leaf essential oil of Uvaria chamae from Badagry, Nigeria

AUTHOR(S): Moses S. Owolabi*, Olowu R. Adewale, Noura S. Dosoky and William N. Setzer
ABSTRACT:The leaf essential oil of Uvaria chamae (Annonaceae) was obtained by hydrodistillation and analyzed by GC-MS. A total of 69 compounds were identified in the leaf oil (99.6% of the composition), which was dominated by 1-nitro-2-phenylethane (63.2%), linalool (9.9%), and germacrene D (6.6%). The bioactivities of the major constituents account for the traditional uses of U. chamae leaves to treat fevers, wounds, swellings, and injuries.
