AUTHOR(S): Bhuwan K. Chhetri, Saeed S. Al-Sokari, William N. Setzer, Nasser A. Awadh Ali
ABSTRACT:The essential oils from the aerial parts of Artemisia abyssinica, collected from three different locations in Yemen, were obtained by hydrodistillation and analyzed by gas chromatography – mass spectrometry. The essential oil from Taiz was dominated by davanone (49.4%) and camphor (29.6%), while samples from Sana’a and Alhodiadah had camphor as the major component (42.1% and 42.5%, respectively) with slightly lower concentrations of davanone (34.5% and 32.3%, respectively).
