Resumen / abstract: 

El aceite esencial obtenido por hidrodestilación de hojas secas de Capsicodendron dinisii (Schwancke) se analizó mediante cromatografía de gases y cromatografía de gases/espectrometría de masas. De acuerdo con los análisis, el aceite esencial contiene un 69,7% de sesquiterpenos hidrocarbonados y 22,6% de sesquiterpenos oxigenados. Bicyclogermacreno (30.8%), E-cariofileno (17.2%), espathulenol (13.5%) and germacreno D (7.6%) fueron los componentes principales identificados en el aceite esencial.

 

Composition of the essential oil from leaves of Capsicodendron dinisii Schwancke from Brazil.

The essential oil obtained by hydrodistillation from dry leaves of Capsicodendron dinisii (Schwancke) was analyzed using gas chromatography (GC) and gas chromatography/mass (GC/MS) spectrometry. According to GC and GC/MS analysis, the essential oil is mostly composed of sesquiterpene hydrocarbons (69.7%) and oxygenated sesquiterpenes (22.6%). Bicyclogermacrene (30.8%), E-caryophyllene (17.2%), spathulenol (13.5%) and germacrene D (7.6%) were the principal components identified in the essential oil.
