Essential oil content and composition of Levisticum officinale large scale cultivated in Iran



Essential oil content and composition of Levisticum officinale large scale cultivated in Iran



Journal of Essential Oil Bearing Plants 9(2): 152-155



The essential oil of dried root of Levisticum officinale cultivated in large scale in Iran was obtained by hydrodistillation. The oil content was 0.6% (w/w) based on dry weight. The oil was analysed by capillary GC and GC-MS. Twenty-four components were identified, with 3-n-butyl phthalide constituting 85.2% of the oil.
