The leaf oils of Cymbopogon citratus (lemongrass), Renealmia sp., and Hyptts recuroata, and the cortex oil of 1jmanthus panurensisfrom Peruvian Amazon have been isolated by hydrodistillation and analyzed by a combination of GC and GC/MS. Twelve, sixteen, and sixteen components have been identified in the leaf oils, accounting for 97.4%, 99.9% and 98.8% of the oils, respectively. The major constituents of the three leaf oils were found to be: C. citratus: geranial (49.9%), neral (30.9016) and geraniol (10.4%); Renealmtasp.: [l-pinene (31.9%), 1,8-cineole (21.3% and camphor (10.5%); H. recurvata: eugenol (68.8%) and 1,8-cineole (15.90/0). The T.panurensiscortexoil was comprised of a single constituent: eugenol (99.9%).
