The characterization of chemical constituents of hydrodistilled essential
oils from the rhizomes of Distichochlamys citrea M.F. Newman and
Distichochlamys orlowii Larsen & M.F. Newman collected from Pù Mát
National Park, Nghệ An Province, Vietnam, was performed by means of gas
chromatography-flame ionization detector (GC-FID) and gas
chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) techniques. The main
constituents of D. citrea oil were 1,8-cineole (23.0%), (E)-citral
(18.9%) and (Z)-citral (15.0%). On the other hand, geranyl acetate
(16.5%), β-elemene (9.2%), β-pinene (9.0%) and β-caryophyllene (7.9%)
were the principal components of D. orlowii. The present paper is the
first of its kind aimed at the characterization of the volatile
compounds of D. orlowii.
