The Essential Oil Composition of Levisticum officinalis from Iran

Verdian Rizi Mohammad Reza and Hadjiakhoondi Abbas

Abstract:
The composition of the essential oil from the aerial parts of Levisticum officinalis obtained by hydro distillation, was analyzed by GC and GC-MS. The main components of the oil were β-phellandrene (42.5%), α-terpineol (27.9%), cis-ocimene (7.5%) and dehydro-1,8-cineol (6.8%). Dehydro-1,8-cineol and α-terpineol were two compounds that have not been reported in previous studies.
