Volatile constituents of Ridolfia segetum (L.) Moris gathered in central Spain: Castilla la Mancha province uri icon

abstract

  • The oils isolated from the aerial parts of Ridolfia segetum (L.) Moris (Apiaceae) gathered in Castilla la Mancha (Spain) were analyzed by capillary CC and GC/MS. The oil from the flowers was dominated by (x-phellandrene (32.033.8%), terpinolene (18.0-21.4%) and W-p-ocimene (12.4-14.5%), while the main components of the fruit oils were found to be dillapiole (5.1-39.6%), beta-pinene (10.3-20.9%), a-pinene (3.0-16. 1%), alpha-phellandrene (13.7-15.3%) and (Z)-beta-ocimene (8.1-12.8%). The oil from the stems was characterized by a high content of p-eymene (15.1-79.5%), (Z)-beta-ocimene(O.9-38.5%) and (x-phellandrene (1. 1- 14.4%), whereas the oil from the leaves was shown to contain p-cymene (8.8-83.6%), < Z >-beta-ocimene (t-32.6%), myrcene (t-12.5%) and beta-pinene (2.1-12.1%) as major constituents.
