Chemical composition of the essential oil of the twigs and leaves of Aegle marmelos (L.) Correa



Chemical composition of the essential oil of the twigs and leaves of Aegle marmelos (L.) Correa



Journal of essential oil research: JEOR e 18(3): 288-289



The essential oil of Aegle marmelos (L.) Correa was analyzed by capillary GC and GC/MS. The oil of twigs afforded the identification of 16 compounds, including eight monoterpene hydrocarbons (92.8%), two oxygenated monoterpenes (2.5%), four sesquiterpene hydrocarbons (2.2%), one oxygenated sesquiterpene (0.2%) and one phenolic compound. Limonene (51.7%) and (Z)-beta-ocimene (39.8%) were the major components reported first time in the oil of twigs of Aegle marmelos. The leaf oil was found to contain 15 compounds, including seven monotorpene hydrocarbons (90.7%), three oxygenated monoterpenes (2.9%), four sesquiterpene hydrocarbons (3.1%) and one phenolic compound (0.2%). Limonene (82.4%) was the main constituent.
