ABSTRACT:In this work, the stem bark and leaf essential oils of two Vietnamese species of the genus Cinnamomum were analyzed by gas chromatography-flame ionization detector (GC-FID) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS). The results showed that Cinnamomum curvifolium (Lour.) Nees afforded oils dominated by α-copaene (14.2%) and 1,8-cineole (10.0%) in the stem bark as well as β-pinene (23.8%), sabinene (14.0%) and camphene (12.1%) in the leaf. The stem bark and leaf oils of Cinnamomum mairei H. Lev had an abundance of α-pinene (15.5% and 13.1%), 1,8-cineole (14.6% and 23.1%) and β-pinene (10.5% and 9.0%) respectively.
