Abstract:

Tanacetum longifolium is a medicinal herb belonging to the family Astereaceae (Composistae). Tanacetum species are the rich source of essential oils. The essential oil was isolated from plant by using a Clevenger type apparatus. The chemical composition of essential oil was analyzed by GC-MS. The antibacterial activity was tested against gram positive Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus and gram negative Escherichia coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The major constituents identified were α-eudesmol (22.5 %), 1,4 dimethyl azulene (13.5%), germacrone (8.2%), trans chrysanthemol (5.3%), 1, 8-cineole (4.5%), and camphor (2.5%). The essential oil of T. longifolium showed strong in vitro activity against E. coli, Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus. The results recommended that raw material and their constituents have commercial utility in incense (dhoop), fragrant, flavor, and pharmaceutical industries.  


Keywords: Astereaceae, Tanacetum longifolium, antibacterial activity, essential oil, and chemical composition.
