The essential oils obtained from flowers buds and seeds of Panax notoginseng (Burk.) F.H. Chen (Araliaceae) have been analyzed by GC (FID) and GC/MS. Thirty components of the oil of the flower buds, representing 93.6%, and sixteen components of the seeds oil, representing 96.5%, were identified, resp. The main constituents were sesiquiterpenes: spathulenol, germacrene D, bicyclogermacrene, and α-panasinsene. A comparison between constituents of the seed and flower bud oils with those reported in the literature for other Panax ssp. revealed some chemotaxonomic considerations.

Abstract

The essential oils obtained from flowers buds and seeds of Panax notoginseng (Burk.) F.H. Chen (Araliaceae) have been analyzed by GC (FID) and GC/MS. Thirty components of the oil of the flower buds, representing 93.6%, and sixteen components of the seeds oil, representing 96.5%, were identified, resp. The main constituents were sesiquiterpenes: spathulenol, germacrene D, bicyclogermacrene, and α-panasinsene. A comparison between constituents of the seed and flower bud oils with those reported in the literature for other Panax ssp. revealed some chemotaxonomic considerations.
