Abstract

The essential oils of Cinnamomum cordatum Kosterm. were analysed by gas chromatography, by retention indices and GC-MS. Forty-three compounds were identified in the leaf oil and the major constituents were linalool (17.3%), (E)-methyl cinnamate (17.1%), β-phellandrene (9.0%), benzyl benzoate (7.6%), terpinen-4-o1 (7.0%), benzyl salicylate (4.7%) and methyl eugenol (4.4%). The bark oil was made up almost entirely of methyl eugenol (92.1%).
