Abstract

The essential oils from cultivated Elsholtzia ciliata (Thunb.) Hyland. from two regions of Vietnam were analyzed by capillary GC and GC/MS. More than 30 components were identified, representing over 95% of the oils. The majn constituents wereneral(15.2-20.5%),geranial (19.5-26.5%),limonene (10.9-14.2%)and(Z)-beta-farnesene (10.8-11.7%). The oxygenated compounds found, such as linalool, nerol, neral, geranial, geraniol, neryl and geranyl fonnates and acetates, (Z)-methyl geranate and (Z)-nerolidol, contribute to the characteristic odor of these oils.
