The main constituents are a volatile oil which contains anithole, methyl chavicol, and saffrole.
The estragole is also termed as Methyl Chavicol and is chemically named as 1-methoxy-4-prop-2-enylbenzene.
Evaluation of the chemical characteristics of the essential oils obtained by Gas Chromatography coupled to Mass Spectroscopy (GC-MS).--The result of this study allowed the identification of seven constituents: Eugenol, Chavicol, Terpinol, Linalol, Limonene, Mirceno and Octenol.
The essential oils were acquired and the composition of the products were informed by the producer company through technical reports (clove Eugenia caryophyllata: eugenol = 86%; tea tree Melaleuca alternifolia: terpinen-4-ol = 42% and gamma-Terpinene = 22%; basil Ocimum basilicum: methyl chavicol = 84%).
