Journal of Essential Oil Research

The essential oils obtained from five samples of Cordia multispicata collected in four municipalities of the state of Pará (Brazil), were obtained by hydrodistillation and analyzed by GC-FID and GC/MS. The most abundant component identified in all oils studied was β-caryophyllene, except in the oil from Ilha de Arapiranga, municipality of Barcarena; this oil showed a high amount of β-phellandrene. The result reveals the occurrence at least two types of the oils from C. multispicata in the state of Pará: ß-caryophyllene-type and β-phellandrene/β-caryophyllene-type, with predominance of the former. © 2010 Allured Business Media.
