Chemical composition and enantiomeric distribution of Picea pungens essential oil

AUTHOR(S): Kathy Swor, Ambika Poudel, Prabodh Satyal and William N Setzer
ABSTRACT:The essential oils from the leaves and twigs of Picea pungens (blue spruce) were obtained from trees growing in Kuna, Idaho, and analyzed by GC-MS, GC-FID, and chiral GC-MS. The essential oils were dominated by monoterpenoids, including limonene (24.5-32.2%), α-pinene (9.7-12.9%), camphor (4.9-10.1%), camphene (7.3-8.1%), bornyl acetate (5.4-10.2%), myrcene (5.3-8.0%), and δ-3-carene (3.2-7.6%). The (–)-enantiomers dominated distributions for camphene, β-pinene, limonene, β-phellandrene, camphor, borneol, and bornyl acetate, while the (+)-enantiomers dominated sabinene, δ-3-carene, and fenchone α-Pinene, terpinen-4-ol, α-terpineol, and citronellol showed considerable variation in enantiomeric distribution.
