Abstract

The chemical composition of the rhizome oil of Hedychium cylindricum Ridl. was determined by GC retention indices (on two columns of different polarity) and GC/MS. Forty-nine compounds were identified with monoterpernoids accounting for more than 88% of the oil. The major constituents of the oil were terpinen-4-ol (40.5%), sabinene (9.9%), p-cymene (8.5%), limonene (6.0%), β-pinene (5.6%), γ-terpinene (4.5%), and α-terpineol (2.2%).
