F M Soliman, M Y Moussa, S M Osman

Abstract




The volatile oils, prepared by hydrodistillation from the aerial parts of three patches of Jasonia montana (vahl.) collected in May, August and November were subjected separately to GC/Ms analysis. Camphor, endoborneol, endobornyl acetate, intermedeol, 1, 8-cineole, 1-α-terpineol, and α-pinene, represented the major components. Also saponifiable and unsaponifiable matters were subjected to GLC analysis. Seventeen hydrocarbons, two sterols and eighteen fatty acids were identified, through GLC technique adopted. The Volatile oil, was found to be more active against Gram (+ ve) bacteria more than Gram (-ve) bacteria and fungi.
