ABSTRACT:The essential oil constituents of three medicinal plants grown in Vietnam were analyzed by gas chromatography-flame ionization detector (GC-FID) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) techniques. The main constituents of Tithonia diversifolia (Hemsl.) A. Gray (Asteraceae) were a-pinene (30.7%) along with (E, E)-a-farnesene (6.1%) and b-caryophyllene (5.1%). Houttuynia cordata Thunb. (Saururaceae) gave oil whose major components were b-myrcene (30.8%), 2-undecanone (19.7%) and (Z)-b-ocimene (10.2%). Asarum glabrum Merr. (Aristolochiaceae) consists mainly of safrole (46.6%) and apiole (17.0%).
