Composition and anticandidal activity of the essential oil of hypericum perforatum L



Asian Journal Of Chemistry: 2, 1315-1320



The essential oil obtained by hydrodistillation of <i>Hypericum perforatum</i> L. (Clusiaceae) obtained from Turkey was analyzed by gas chromatography and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS), simultaneously. Main constituents of the oil was found as germacrene D (23%), b-caryophyllene (14%), bicyclogermacrene (5%), caryophyllene oxide (4%) and spathulenol (4%).
