Chemical composition of Cryptomeria japonica leaf oil from Nepal
AUTHOR(S): Prabodh Satyal, William N. Setzer
ABSTRACT:Cryptomeria japonica is a commercially important timber tree throughout Asia, and the leaf essential oils from this tree have shown various biological activities. In this work, we have examined the chemical composition of the leaf essential oil of C. japonica from Nepal and compared the composition to those from other geographical locations. The leaf essential oil of C. japonica from Nepal was found to be qualitatively similar to leaf oils from other geographical locations, but very rich in both elemol and 16-kaurene, and may be a commercially-important source of these two phytochemicals.
