The essential oils isolated from 3 Guatteria species (G. ouregou, G. sagotiana and G. wachenheimi; collected in French Guiana) were examined by GC and GC/MS. The main components of each oil (>5%) were: G. ouregou root oil: caryophyllene oxide (24.8%), alpha -cadinol (11.4%), trans-carveol (8.4%) and spathulenol (5.7%); G. sagotiana fruit oil: gamma -terpinene (25.4%), p-cymene (24.9%), caryophyllene oxide (8.4%) and beta -caryophyllene (7.4%); G. wachenheimi stem bark oil: borneol (20.4%), delta -3-carene (19.9%), caryophyllene oxide (8.3%) and limonene (6.2%); and G. wachenheimi leaf oil: beta -caryophyllene (19.2%), caryophyllene oxide (12.3%), spathulenol (11.4%), alpha -humulene (8.8%) and borneol (8.4%).
