AUTHOR(S): Andrea Vargas Suarez, Prabodh Satyal and William N Setzer
ABSTRACT:The wood essential oil of Tectona grandis was obtained from cultivated trees growing in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. The essential oil was analyzed by gas chromatography – mass spectrometry and was dominated by oxygenated sesquiterpenoids: α-Cadinol (25.5%), τ-muurolol (11.8%), cedrol (10.1%), α-muurolol (8.8%), and τ-cadinol (8.7%). Unfortunately, the essential oil yield was very low, only 0.04%.
