Volatile composition of Vicia caroliniana growing in Huntsville, Alabama

AUTHOR(S): Elizabeth M Lopez, Jonathan D Craft and William N Setzer
ABSTRACT:The volatile oils from the aerial parts of three populations of Vicia caroliniana, a Cherokee traditional medicine, were obtained by hydrodistillation and analyzed by gas chromatography – mass spectrometry. The oils were devoid of monoterpenoids and sesquiterpenoids, but rich in phytol (16-36%), phytone (2-22%), and fatty acid derivatives (44-74%). The major components of V. caroliniana volatiles may be responsible for the traditional uses of this plant to treat cramps and pains.
