Abstract

The galangal oils distilled from the rhizomes and seeds of Alpinia galanga (L.) Willd. from Malaysia were examined by capillary GC and GC/MS. The rhizome oil was rich in 1,8-cineole (40.5%). Other compounds that were found in appreciable amounts in the oil were the sesquiterpenoids, β-bisabolene (8.4%), (Z,E)-farnesol (3.8%), β-caryophyllene (3.6%) and (E)-β-farnesene (3.2%). The seed oil was characterized by its richness in sesquiterpenoids with the major ones being β-bisabolene (37.6%), (E)-β-farnesene (22.7%), (E.E)-farnesyl acetate (7.9%), (Z,E)-farnesol (3.9%) and β-caryophyllene (3.0%).
