Chemical Composition and Antimicrobial Activity of Volatile Components from Wild Illicium Wardii in China
The chemical composition and the antimicrobial activity of the essential oil from Illicium wardii A. C. Smith seed were evaluated.The oil which was analyzed by GC and GC/MS was found to contain limonene (18.8%), dihydrocarveol(16.6%),menthatriene(4.6%),caryophylleneoxide(3.9%),β- pinene (3.6%) as major components . Illicium wardii oil displayed a high inhibitory activity against B.subtilis and S.aureus.
