The essential oil of Trachyspermum ammi (L.) Sprague (Bishop's weed, Ajowan) seeds was isolated by hydrodistillation. The oil, obtained in 1.2% yield, was analyzed by high resolution GC and GC/MS, and 99.8% of the compounds were identified. The principal oil constituents were carvone (46.2%), limonene (38.1%) and dillapiole (8.9"/0).
