Abstract

The leaf and bark oils of Cinnamomum subavenium Miq. were analyzed by capillary GC and GC/MS. The oils were found to possess some compositional similarities but considerable variation in the levels of each component. The major components of the leaf oil were patchouli alcohol (27.7%) and benzyl benzoate (19.6%). Other compounds that were present in appreciable amounts in the oil were β-selinene (7.2%), geraniol (3.6%) and linalool (2.9%). The bark oil was characterized by the presence of higher concentrations of α-terpineol (9.7%) and linalool (7.5%) and relatively lower amounts of patchouli alcohol (10.5%) and benzyl benzoate (0.5%).
