Abstract

The chemical composition of the leaf, bark and root oils of Goniothalamus malayanus Hook. f. and Thoms. was examined by capillary GC and GC-MS. The leaf oil was made up mainly of sesquiterpenoids, of which β-selinene (33.6%) was the dominant component. The other major compounds present were viridiflorol (13.1%), epi-globulol (7.7%), (E)-nerolidol (4.4%) and globulol (3.8%). The bark and root oils, which were qualitatively similar but with some variation in levels of the individual constituents, were also rich in sesquiterpenoids (97% and 95%, respectively), with eudesmols as the most abundant compounds. The bark oil contained a higher amount of β-eudesmol (32.2%), γ-eudesmol (21.8%) and α-eudesmol (6.6%) than the root oil.
