Abstract

The chemical composition of the essential oils, isolated by hydrodistillation from various parts (leaves, trunk, bark, fruit pulp and kernels) of Talauma giot from Vietnam, was analyzed for the first time by a combination of GC and GC/MS. The major constituents of the fruit pulp and kernel oils were found to be safrole (70.2% and 72.9%) and methyl eugenol (24.2% and 18.5%), respectively. Camphor (23.8%) was the main constituent of the trunk oil. The bark oil contained mainly camphor 05.7%), safrole (14.3%), beta-caryophyllene (15.6%) and elemicin (13.7%). The leaf oil contained elemicin (46.3%) and beta-caryophyllene (16.9'1;6) as major components.
