The essential oils isolated from three Guatteria species, Annonaceae (G. ouregou Dun., G. sagotiana R.E. Fries and G. wachenheimi Benoist) have been examined by GC and GC/MS. The main components of each oil (> 5%) were: G. ouregou root oil: caryophyllene oxide (24.8%), alpha-cadinol (11.4%), trans-carveol (8.4%) and spathulenol (5.7%); G. sagotiana fruit oil: gamma-terpinene (25.4%), p-cymene (24.9%), caryophyllene oxide (8.4%) and beta-caryophyllene (7.4%); G. wachenheimi stem bark oil: borneol (20.4%), delta-3-carene (19.9%), caryophyllene oxide (8.3%) and limonene (6.2%); and G. wachenheimi leaf oil: beta-caryophyllene (19.2%), caryophyllene oxide (12.3%), spathulenol (11.4%), alpha-humulene (8.8%) and borneol (8.4%).
