GC and GC-MS analysis of the fresh flower essential oil of Cananga odorata (Lam.) Hook. f. et Th. var. fruticosa (Craib) J. Sincl.

AUTHOR(S): Phan Minh Giang and Phan Tong Son
ABSTRACT:Cananga odorata (Lam.) Hook. f. et Th. var. fruticosa (Craib) J. Sincl. is a less well-known ylang-ylang species. The flower essential oil of the plant growing in northern Vietnam was analyzed for the first time in this study using GC and GC-MS analysis. The identification of the main constituents α-humulene (7.1%), germacrene D (8.1%), (E, E)-α-farnesene (12.6%), (E, E)-farnesol (5.6%) and benzyl benzoate (3.8%) agrees well with the results previously reported for ylang-ylang (C. odorata) oils. The major aroma constituents of the oil were identified as linalool (8.7%) and β-caryophyllene (26.8%).
