ABSTRACT:In the present communication, the compositional pattern and antimicrobial activity of hydrodistilled essential oils from the leaf of Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth., of the family Lamiaceae and the aerial parts of Coriandrum sativum L. belonging to the family Umbelliferae growing in Vietnam were reported. The main constituents of P. cablin essential oil were mainly sesquiterpenes represented by patchoulol (32.0%), α-guaiene (14.9%), α-bulnesene (14.2%), seychellene (8.2%), α-patchoulene (5.5%), and β-patchoulene (5.2%). However, linalool (34.2%), (2E)-decenal (14.9%), (2E)-dodecanal (10.8%), (2E)-decen-1-ol (7.1%), n-tetradecanol (5.7%), and decanal (4.5%) were the main constituents of the essential oil of C. sativum. Only the essential oil of C. sativum displayed moderate activity against Bacillus subtilis ATCC 6633 with minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) value of 64.0 µg/mL, and median lethal concentration (IC50) value of 35.08±2.57. The essential oils of both P. cablin and C. sativum could not inhibit the growth of Escherichia coli ATCC 25922, and Candida albicans ATCC 10231.
