    Abstract

    Essential oils of the leaves of two cocoa clones UIT1 and NA33 were investigated qualitatively by gas chromatography (GC) and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS). Twenty-four components of the oil obtained from UIT1 leaf oil were identified. These compounds were: four aldehydes, 13 alcohols, six ketones and one fatty acid. Twenty compounds were identified in the leaf oil of NA33: an aldehyde, nine alcohols, eight ketones and two fatty acids. The above findings show that genetic variations of the same species yield oils of differing compositions.
