Abstract
The essential oil of mature and the immature seeds and the roots of F. ovina, which grows wild in Pakistan was studied for the 1st time with respect to its physicochemical constants and chemical composition. Mature seed from Zargoon and Hazarganji in Baluchistan contained 1.0% and 1.2% essential oil, respectively. The immature seed at 2 different stages of maturation and the roots of Hazarganji contained 2.5%, 1.3% and 0.8% of essential oil, respectively. The essential oils of the mature seeds of Zargoon and Hazarganji, the immature seeds at 2 different stages and the roots of Hazarganji, respectively, contained .alpha.-pinene (70.6%, 62.2%, 53.7%, 57.1% and 13.8%), camphene (7.9%, 12.0%, 16.7%, 14.2% and 9.5%), .beta.-pinene (0.8%, 2.1%, 3.5%, 3.0% and 2.8%), myrcene (5.8%, 6.6%, 11.4%, 9.8% and 10.0%), limonene (3.5%, 5.1%, 7.6%, 6.8% and 14.2%), .gamma.-terpinene (0.1%, 0.2%, 2.0%, 1.1% and 1.4%), p-cymene (traces, traces, 0.0, 0.9%), bornyl acetate (1.2%, 0.35%, 0.6%, 0.6%, 0.4% and 1.2%), terpinyl acetate (0.8%, 0.7%, 0, 0.2% and 0.8%), geranyl acetate (0.3%, 0%, 0%, 0% and 0%), fenchyl acetate (0, 0, 0, 0, and 0.5%), camphor (0.3%, 0.2%, 0.2%, 0.8% and 7.8%), fenchone (0.2%, 0, 0, 0 and 4.1%), fenchyl alcohol (0, 0, 0, 0 and 8.6%), .alpha.-terpineol (2.1%, 3.6%, 1.0%, 1.6% and 2.4%), geraniol (2.3%, 0, 0, 0 and 0%), borneol (1.9%, 5.3%, 2.5%, 3.6% and 19.0%) and a mixture of coumarins (1.9%, 1.8%, 0.7%, 1.4% and 3.0%). The oils obtained from the seeds of 2 distinct localities, at 2 stages of maturation in the same locality and from the roots of the mature plant were studied. S compounds were not detected in any of the oils.
