Difference in Volatile Composition of Chenopodium murale from Two Different Locations of Cyprus
MetadataShow full item record
Volatile composition of Chenopodium murale from Degirmenlik and Salamis locations of Cyprus were trapped with headspace solid-phase microextraction (HS-SPME) technique and analyzed by GC-MS. Twenty-one compounds were identified comprising of 80.5% of the volatile sample from the Degirmenlik and twenty-six compounds were identified comprising of 82.2% of the volatile from the Salamis sample. Volatiles of C. murale from Degirmenlik contained 18.7% benzaldehyde, 8.6% yomogi alcohol 6.8% 1-hexanol and 6.5% dihydromyrcenol as the main components whereas volatiles of the sample from Salamis contained 20.5% yomogi alcohol, 14.5% camphor, 8.1% 1-hexanol and 6.6% 2-ethyl-hexanol. The volatiles of C. murale from both locations contained unexpected irregular monoterpene yomogi alcohol which is previously known to be restricted to Asteraceae genus. Both locations showed variations in their compositions which suggests the chemotype variation could be observed from this species.
