The percentage composition of myrcene in rosemary was 3.99 [+ or -] 0.2 and 5.01 [+ or -] 0.3 in eucalyptus, [beta]-lin1oo1 (0.45 [+ or -] 0.01, 0.50 [+ or -] 0.02), nerol (15.00 [+ or -] 0.02, 23.98 [+ or -] 0.03), citral (18.01 [+ or -] 0.02,14.02 [+ or -] 0.02), limonene oxide (0.40 [+ or -] 0.03, 1.05 [+ or -] 0.02), cineole (9.23 [+ or -] 0.03, 10.00 [+ or -] 0.01), berbenol (4.56 [+ or -] 0.02, 2.22 [+ or -] 0.02), and oleic acid (27.67 [+ or -] 0.01, 19.98 [+ or -] 0.02) (Table 4).
Thujone (trans), [alpha]-pinene, [beta]-myrcene, terpinen, limonene, 1.8-cineole, linalool, bornyl acetate, citronellal, eugenol, geranyl acetate, nerol, [beta]-caryophyllene were purchased from Aldrich Company, USA.
(15) Sour rot can reduce terpenes; for example, free geraniol, nerol and linalool concentrations declined and transfuran linalool oxide, benzyl alcohol, 2-phenylethanol increased in one study of Riesling.
Results: Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry results confirmed the presence of nerol, geranial and geraniol as major volatile compounds.
Esta variacion en los resultados puede ser atribuida a diferencias en los porcentajes de los componentes principales de este aceite, como el nerol y geraniol (Vargas y Bottia, 2008).
Alcohol constituents include linalol, menthol, borneol, santalol, nerol, citronellol, and geranio1.
