Abstract

The wood oil of Glyptostrobus pensilis (Staunt.) K. Koch collected from Dak Lak province, Vietnam, in May 2008 was isolated by steam distillation to give oil yield 0.35% and analyzed by Capillary GC/MS. Forty-one components have been identified accounting more than 84.04% of the oil respectively. The major constituents of this oil appeared to be a-pinene (18.92%), limonene (23.89%), b-caryophyllene (6.13%), caryophyllene oxide (5.89%) and bornyl acetate (5.16%). Less predominant constituents included germacrene D (3.55%), b-elemene (2.48%), b-myrcene (2.19%), b-selinene (2.10%), b-pinene (1.19%), a-amorphene (1.17%) and camphene (1.14%).
