Abstract

The oil isolated by hydrodistillation from the leaves of Lippia alba growing in plain regions of North India, was analyzed by GC and GC/MS. Fifty-nine components were identified accounting for approximately 98% of the total oil. Myrcene (26.4%) was found as a major component followed by geranial (9.8%), neral (6.4%), 6-methyl-5-hepten-2-o1 (5.9%), l3-caryophyllene (4.3%), junenol (4.2%), geraniol (3.9%), 6-methyl-5-hepten-2-one (3.3%), linalool (3.2%), etc.
