Abstract:

The steam distillation of leaves from the tree species Eucalyptus nesophila, native of Australia and acclimatised in Congo-Brazzaville, yielded essential oils with yields ranging from 0.1 to 0.5% over the year. To evaluate the variability of its chemical composition, 24 samples were studied. In these, 59 compounds were detected, of which 47 were identified. Two profiles were found, one rich in monoterpene hydrocarbons (α- and β-pinene), and the other rich in sesquiterpene alcohols (globulol, viridiflorol and epi-globulol). The essential oils studied contained mostly the same constituents in alternatively major and minor proportions, forming a relatively homogeneous population, the difference between the two types being essentially quantitative.
