Abstract
Capillary GC analysis of the essential oils of Ocimum basilicum var. canum Sims and O. gratissimum L. grown on Aruba showed that O. basilicum var. canum belonged to the methyl cinnamate type. Half of the material of O. gratissimum belonged to the methyl cinnamate chemotype and the other half contained sesquiterpene hydrocarbons and varying amounts of eugenol as the main volatile components, indicating the existence also of a sesquiterpene hydrocarbon-eugenol chemotype of O. gratissimum.
