Leaf essential oil composition and terpenoid enantiomeric distribution of Monarda bradburiana beck cultivated in South Alabama
AUTHOR(S): Sims K Lawson, Prabodh Satyal and William N Setzer
ABSTRACT:In this work, the leaf essential oil of Monarda bradburiana, which was cultivated in south Alabama, was obtained by hydrodistillation and analyzed by gas chromatographic techniques. The leaf essential oil of M. bradburiana was dominated by thymol (60.1%), with lower concentrations of p-cymene (9.8%), carvacrol (5.7%), 1-octen-3-ol (4.9%), and γ-terpinene (4.7%). Chiral gas chromatography revealed the enantiomeric ratios of terpenoid components to be comparable to other Monarda species with the exception of camphene, 60.5% (–)-camphene, and linalool, which was 100% (–)-linalool.
