The essential oils from the leaves and stem-bark of Vitellaria paradoxa C. F. Gaertn. obtained by hydrodistillation were analyzed by GC/GC-MS. A total of 68 and 33 compounds representing 90.1 % and 95.1 % of the total oils were identified in the leaves and stem bark, respectively. The major constituent in the two oils was linalool (12.2 to 15.0 %). The essential oil has LC50 value between 160.098 and 171.240 µg/ml indicating moderate toxicity

Abstract

The essential oils from the leaves and stem-bark of Vitellaria paradoxa C. F. Gaertn. obtained by hydrodistillation were analyzed by GC/GC-MS. A total of 68 and 33 compounds representing 90.1 % and 95.1 % of the total oils were identified in the leaves and stem bark, respectively. The major constituent in the two oils was linalool (12.2 to 15.0 %). The essential oil has LC50 value between 160.098 and 171.240 µg/ml indicating moderate toxicity
