ABSTRACT:In this paper, the compounds identified from the essential oil of the leaf of Piper longum L. are described. The essential oil which was hydrodistilled from the air-dried leaf of P. longum was characterized for the constituents by means of gas chromatography (GC) and gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry GC-MS). The yield of the colorless essential oil was 0.12% (v/w) calculated on a dry weight basis. The main constituent of the oil was fonenol (40.5%). The chemical compositions of the studied oil sample were considerably different from data observed from other samples around the world.
