Abstract

The rhizome and leaf oils of Boesenbergia stenophylla R. M. Sm. were analysed by gas chromatography on two columns of different polarity, retention indices and GC-MS. The oils were found to possess compositional similarities but quantitative differences in the concentration of each component. The oils are natural sources of methyl (E)-cinnamate, constituting 49.9-53.4% of the oils. They are also rich in sesquiterpenoids (39.8 and 40.3%, respectively) with δ-elemene, β-elemene, α-santalene, α-humulene, γ-muurolene, spathulenol, caryophyllene alcohol and kaur-16-ene as the main representatives.
