Abstract

The leaf oil of Annona muricata L. collected from Vinh city, Nghe An province, Vietnam, in May 2006 was isolated by steam distillation to give oil yield 0.1% and analyzed by Capillary GC and GC/MS. Sixty components have been identified accounting more than 95.1% of the oil respectively. The major constituents of this oil appeared to be b-pinene (27.6%) vµ bicyclogermacrene (13.7%) vµ germacrene D (11.3%).

Less predominant constituents included a-pinene (7.7%), limonene (4.8%), myrcene (3,3%), calacorene (3.1%), b-bourbonene (3.0%), 3-oxo-p-menth-1-en-7-al (2.9%), b-elemene (2.8%), a-amorphene (2.7%),a-terpinolene (2.2%), a-copaene (1.8%), bicycloelemene (1.4%), spathoulenol (1.2%), (Z)-b-ocimene (1.2%). All the other components were in concentration of less than 0.1-0.9%.
