AUTHOR(S): Sims K Lawson, Layla G Sharp, Prabodh Satyal and William N Setzer
ABSTRACT:The essential oil of Conoclinium coelestinum, growing wild in north Alabama, has been obtained by hydrodistillation from the aerial parts, and the oil analyzed by gas chromatography – mass spectrometry. C. coelestinum essential oil was rich in germacrene D (28.6%), (2E)-hexenal (9.5%), β-caryophyllene (7.4%), and (Z, Z)-α-farnesene (7.2%). The essential oil was screened for antifungal activity against Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans, and Cryptococcus neoformans, but showed only marginal activity (MIC = 625, 1250, and 313 μg/mL, respectively).
