Din, Laily and Zakaria, Zuriati and Samsudin, Mohd Wahid and Brophy, Joseph and Toia, Robert F. (1988) Composition of the Steam Volatile Oil from Hyptis suaveolens Poit. Pertanika, 11 (2). pp. 239-242.


The steam volatile oil from the aerial parts of Hyptis suaveolens has been examined by combined GC-MS. Of the 70 components detected, 38 have been identified accounting for approximately 86% of the oil. ( β Caryophyllene was present to 41% and 1,8-cincole, terpinen-4-o 1, ex-bergamotene, sabinene and ex -copaene were the other major components. This oil appears to be chemically distinct from the one reported from H. suaveolens collected in South America.
