Abstract

The essential oil of Pogostemon cablin (Blanco) Benth. grown in Vietnam, was analyzed by capillary gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. Patchouli alcohol accounted for about 32–38% of the patchouli oil. Ten more compounds were identified, of which α-bulnesene and α-guaiene were the main components.
