Volatile Oil Yield and Constituents of Salvia officinalis, S. tomentosa Mill. and S. glutinosa Growing in Ankara, Turkey

Kiarash Afshar Pour Rezaeieh and Bilal Gurbuz

Abstract:
Background and Objective: The genus Salvia L. is represented in Turkey by 88 species and 45 endemics some of which bear great economic value. Current study aimed at identifying promising Salvia species, especially less-common ones, regarding their essential oil yields and constituents in Ankara ecological conditions. Materials and Methods: Aerial parts of three Salvia spp. growing in Ankara University Experimental Field were set to GC/MS analysis after being dried in shade. Results: The essential oil contents of Salvia officinalis, S. tomentosa and S. glutinosa were 1.67% (v/w), 1.56% (v/w) and 0.12% (v/w), respectively. The main chemical groups for S. officinalis, S. tomentosa and S. glutinosa were oxygenated monoterpenes (49.59%), sesquiterpene hydrocarbons (59.28%) and monoterpene hydrocarbons (69.23%), respectively. Conclusion: The S. glutinosa was characterized by considerable amount of diterpene (5.87%) β-thujone (31.90%), β-pinene (53.36%) and β-caryophyllene (19.34%) were determined as the most abundant components for Salvia officinalis, S. tomentosa and S. glutinosa, respectively. The results of the analyses of the oils from Salvia species revealed that oil with low yield was rich with some components including β-caryophyllene.
