Chemical composition of essential oils of Amomum villosum Lour

AUTHOR(S): Chemical composition of essential oils of Amomum villosum Lour
ABSTRACT:The characterization of essential oils from the leaves and root barks of Amomum villosum Lour grown in two localities of Vietnam was performed by means of gas chromatography-flame ionization detector (GC-FID) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) techniques. The classes of compounds identified in the oil samples were monoterpene hydrocarbons (74.0%-89.7%), oxygenated monoterpenes (1.7%-5.8%), sesquiterpene hydrocarbons (4.6%-12.0%) and oxygenated sesquiterpenes (0.6%-11.8%). The main constituents of the essential oils were the monoterpene hydrocarbons represented by β-pinene (34.7%-56.6%) and α-pinene (11.6%-22.1%).
