AUTHOR(S): Layla G Sharp, Prabodh Satyal and William N Setzer
ABSTRACT:The essential oils from the aerial parts of Acalypha rhomboidea, growing wild in north Alabama, were obtained by hydrodistillation and analyzed by gas chromatography – mass spectrometry. The essential oils were dominated by green leaf volatiles, mainly (2E)-hexenal (52.7-53.2%), (3Z)-hexenol (7.6-12.3%), and hexanal (5.3-5.8%). In addition, the diterpenoid phytol (11.3-15.1%) was also abundant in the essential oils.
