 en Gas Chromatographic-Mass Spectrometric Analysis of Essential Oil of Jasminum officinale check for this species in other resources L var Grandiflorum Flower
Wei, Feng huan; Chen, Fei long & Tan, Xiao mei


Purpose: To analyze the essential oil composition of the flower of Jasminum officinale check for this species in other resources L. var. grandifloroum L. (Jasminum grandiflorum) by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS).
Methods: The optimum GC-MS conditions used for the analysis were 250 °C inlet temperature, 150 °C MSD detector temperature, and GC oven temperature program as follows: 100 °C initial temperature, increased to 270 °C at 4 °C/min, final temperature 270 °C and held for 7.5 min.
Results: Thirty compounds were identified, representing 99.28 % of the oil content. The major volatile components of the flower were 3,7,11,15- tetramethyl-2-hexadecen-1-oliphytolj (25.77 %), 3,7,11- trimethyldodeca -1,6,10-trien-3-ol (12.54 %) and 3,7,11,15- tetramethyl -1-Hexadecen-3-ol (12.42 %).
Conclusion: The results show that phytol is the major volatile component of Jasminum grandiflorum.
