Kh. Nait Achour, M.O. Mecherri, M. Nabiev


The chemical composition of the essential oil, extracted from Eucalyptus camaldulensis leaves originating from Tizi Ouzou region (north Algeria) has been studied. Analyses were made by GC/FID on two capillary columns, using a non-polar phase (DB1) and another polar one (Carbowax 20M). This essential oil was also analyzed by GC/MS on OV1 capillary columns. The main components identified after this investigation were: p-cymene (22.50%), spathulenol (22.05%), cryptone (16.79%) while 1.8-cineole was identified at a low concentration (1.23%).
