Keywords:Adenosma capitatum, GC-MS analysis, Essential oils, Limnophila aromatica, Limonene, Z-Ocimene
The essential oils were isolated by hydrodistillation from the aerial parts of Adenosma capitatum and Limnophila aromatica and were analyzed by gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Forty six and thirty components were identified, representing 98.8% and 99.3% of the total oils respectively. Oil of A. capitatum rich in limonene (24.74%), fenchone (21.59%) and 2-carene (17.64%). On the other hand, L. aromatica rich in Z-ocimene (39.21%), terpinolene (17.24%) andcamphor (12.89%).
