ABSTRACT:This paper report the volatile compounds identified in the essential oil hydrodistilled from the stem of Taxus chinensis (Rehder & E.H. Wilson) Rehder (Taxaceae) from Vietnam. The chemical constituents of the oil were analysed by gas chromatography (GC) and gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry. The yield of the yellow oil was 0.12% (v/w), calculated on a dry weight basis. Monoterpene hydrocarbons (42.1%), oxygenated monoterpenes (17.7%) and oxygenated sesquiterpenes (25.8%) were the main classes of compounds identified in the oil. The major constituents of the oil were α-pinene (34.8%) and caryophyllene oxide (17.1%).
