ABSTRACT:The compositions of essential oils obtained by hydrodistillation of two Annonaceae plants from Vietnam were reported. The essential oils were analysed for their constituents by means of gas chromatography-flame ionization detector (GC-FID) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry techniques (GC-MS). The principal components of the leaf of Miliusa sinensis Fin. & Gagnep were b-caryophyllene (19.5%), δ-selinene (10.3%), caryophyllene oxide (10.1%) a-humulene (7.9%) and b-elemene (7.1%). The major compounds identified in the leaf oil of Artabotrys taynguyenensis Ban were valencene (40.1%) along with δ-selinene (8.8%), α-pinene (6.7%), α-muurolene (5.1%) and α-panasinsene (5.1%). However, bicycloelemene (25.1%), bicyclogermacrene (23.7%) and spathulenol (12.8%) were the principal compounds in the stem oil. This is the first report on the volatile constituents of these plant samples.
