Essential Oil Constituents of Summer Savory Plants Propagated and Adapted under Egyptian Climate

Khalid A. Khalid

Abstract:
The essential oils obtained by water distillation from aerial parts of summer savory (Satureja hortensis L.) yielded 1.2% v/w on a dry weight. Eight constituents representing 99.7% of the S. hortensis essential oils were identified. The major constituents of S. hortensis essential oils were γ-terpinene (46.4%), carvacrol (40.2%) and α-thujene (8.8%). The obtained constituents from S. hortensis essential oil under egyptian conditions grouped into three classes which are Monoterpene Hydrocarbons (MH), Oxygenated Monoterpenes (OM) and Sesquiterpene Hydrocarbons (SH). It is evident that the MH reached its highest concentrations (57.8%) followed by OM (41.3%) in essential oil compared with the minor chemical class (SH) (0.6%).
