Chemical Constituent and Antimicrobial Activity of Essential Oil from Fragrant Loquat and Common Loquat
The chemical components of fragrant loquat and common loquat extracted by petroleum ether had been investigated using capillary GC-MS. 109 constituents were identified and the relative percentages of the constituents were determined. The highest content of chemical constituents was phytol. The antimicrobial activity on seven test organisms of essential oil from fragrant loquat and common loquat leaf extract were detected, the results indicated that these extracts had inhibitory effects on Canidia Albicans and Trichoderma spp., but not on bacteria.
