Abstract:
The essential oils of Laserpitium gallicum L. ( Apiaceae) from two sites in southern France have been analyzed. In plants from one site, alpha- and beta-pinene were the main components, whereas the samples from the second site displayed approximately equal amounts of alpha-pinene, beta-pinene, sabinene, and limonene. Additionally, some oxygenated monoterpenes, sesquiterpene hydrocarbons, and oxygenated sesquiterpenoids could be found. The leaf oil had a composition similar to the fruit oil.
