AUTHOR(S): Do N. Dai, Bui V. Thanh, Tran D. Thang and Isiaka A. Ogunwande
ABSTRACT:The chemical constituents of essential oils obtained from the hydrodistillation of the stem bark and fruits of Desmos cochinchinensis Lour, were being reported. The combined techniques of gas chromatography-flame ionization detector (GC-FID) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) were employed in the analysis. The main compounds of the stem bark oil were b-caryophyllene (16.9%), bicyclogermacrene (11.6%) and benzyl benzoate (10.1%) while the fruit oil was characterized by the abundance of b-caryophyllene (20.9%), limonene (15.9%) and germacrene D (12.5%). The volatile contents of the stem bark and fruit of Desmos cochinchinensis have not been previously analysed and reported.
