ABSTRACT:The chemical composition of one oil sample of Cunninghamia konishii Hayata isolated from wood harvested in Hà Giang province (Vietnam), was investigated by chromatographic (GC with retention indices) and spectroscopic techniques (MS, 13C NMR). Forty six compounds accounting for 88.4% of the oil have been identified. C. konishii wood produced sesquiterpene-rich essential oil, whose composition was dominated by a-cedrene (18.4%), cedrol (11.2%) and γ-eudesmol (8.8%). a-Terpineol (9.6%) was the major monoterpene. 13C NMR appeared really useful for the identification of b-funebrene which co-eluted with a-cedrene and sesquithuriferol which co-eluted with cedrol.
