Composition of volatile fractions from Thymus, Origanum, Lavandula and Acinos species



Composition of volatile fractions from Thymus, Origanum, Lavandula and Acinos species



Journal of Essential Oil Bearing Plants 8(1): 36-51



Three species of thyme (Thymus serpyllum, T. striatus and T. capitatus), Origanum vulgare, Lavandula angustifolia and Acinos suaveolens were studied for their volatile components using SPME (solid-phase microextraction) technique. In T. serpyllum, 69 compounds were detected. Of the 51 volatile compounds found in T. striatus, alpha - and gamma -terpinene, thymol, p-cymene, and alpha -thujene appeared to be the main components.
