Essential oil composition of Tagetes minuta L. fruits



Journal of essential oil research: JEOR 17(2): 184-185



Hydrodistilled essential oil of the dried mature fruits containing seeds of Tagetes minuta was analyzed by GC and GC/MS. Twenty-four constituents making up 93.7% of the oil were identified. The major compounds were limonene + beta-phellandrene (4.7%), (Z)-beta-ocimene (36.8%), dihydrotagetone + (E)-beta-ocimene (15.5%), (Z)-tagetone (17.1%), (Z)-tagetenone (3.0%) and (E)-tagetenone (7.5%).
