Essential Oil Composition from Juniperus communis Originated from Albania

Year 2018, Volume 13, Issue 1, 15 - 19, 30.03.2018

Abstract

The essential oil of juniper berries (Juniperus communis L., Cupressaceae) is traditionally used for medicinal and flavoring purposes. The aim of the present study was to contribute to the knowledge of the essential-oil composition of J. communis, which was performed by capillary GC-MS with an HP-5 column and with an EI detector. Identification of the compounds was made by comparison of mass spectra and retention indices with literature records J. communis L. is composed mainly of monoterpene (71.8%) and sesquiterpene hydrocarbons (18.7%). Totally were identified (98.2%) of the chemical constituents amounting to 56 compounds and the principalwere: α-pinene (35.8%), β-myrcene (19.9%), sabinene (10.0%) and germacene D (4.5%).
