ABSTRACT:The present study was undertaken to determine the chemical composition and evaluate the in vitro antioxidant, anti-inflammatory activities of essential oil (EO) of Greenwayodendron suaveolens (Engl. & Diels) Verdc. Subsp. suaveolens. The determination of chemical composition of EO had been carried out by Gas Chromatography and Gas Chromatography coupled to Mass Spectrometry. The total antioxidant content was determined by the Folin-Ciocalteu method. The antioxidant activities of EO were evaluated using DPPH, ABTS and FRAP methods. The anti-inflammatory effects of EO were evaluated according to in vitro Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) denaturation and Proteinase Inhibitory Action assays. The results obtained showed the presence of α-muurolene, 14-hydroxy-9-epi-(E)-caryophyllene, α-humulene, 14-hydroxy-(Z)-caryophyllene, davanone and cubeban-11-ol with respectively proportions of 15.5%, 13.8%, 7.9%, 7.3%, 7.2% and 6.8% as major compounds in G. suaveolens EO. The EO of G. suaveolens exhibited a total antioxidant of 239.89 ± 2.13 mg EGA/mg of dry weight. Meanwhile, the free radical DPPH·and ABTSscavenging activities (SC50) of 15.60 ± 1.65 µg/mL and 4.69 ± 0.96 µg/mL respectively. We found a high reducing activity of G. suaveolens EO at 94.75 ± 1.66 mg EGA/mg dry weight. The G. suaveolens EO has shown a high anti-inflammatory activity through bovine serum albumin denaturation and proteinase inhibitory action with the inhibitory concentration 50 (IC50) of 183.30 ± 3.15 mg/mL and 33.62 ± 0.95 mg/mL respectively. These results suggest that G. suaveolens essential oil may offer a new source of potential therapeutic agents to prevent inflammation induced by oxidative stress, starting point of several diseases.
