Twelve samples of Palmarosa essential oils from Madagascar were studied by capillary gas chromatography. The analysis using the combination of Kovats indices and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry led to the identification of 69 components. Among them, nine were determined for the first time in Palmarosa essential oil. Statistical analysis shows a high positive correlation between some monoterpenes and a high negative correlation between (Z,E)-farnesyl acetate and various monoterpenes and between geraniol and geranyl acetate.
