AUTHOR(S): Sims K Lawson, Prabodh Satyal and William N Setzer
ABSTRACT:The essential oil from the heartwood of Sassafras albidum was obtained by hydrodistillation and analyzed by GC-MS, GC-FID, and chiral GC-MS. The major components in the wood essential oil were α-pinene (25.6%), 1,8-cineole (10.7%), α-terpineol (10.1%), β-pinene (8.8%), linalool (8.0%), and limonene (5.4%). The (+)-enantiomers predominated for α-pinene, β-pinene, limonene, and α-terpineol, while linalool was nearly racemic.
