Abstract:

Essential oil content in two different plant parts (leaves and flowers) from marigold belonging to the species Tagetes patula were evaluated by hydro distillation and examined by gas chromatography (GC) and GC-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) at the flowering stage. The leaves parts showed richer in oil contents as compared to flowers whereas, both leaves and flowers contains very similar qualitative oil composition (compounds) differing only in the relative percentages and. The oil of leaves contained higher amounts of limonene, (Z)-β-ocimene, (E)-β-ocimene, terpinolene, dihydrotagetone, and piperitone. Whereas, the oil of the flowers showed higher concentration of (Z)-tagetone, β-caryophyllene, caryophyllene oxide, piperitone oxide and germacrene-D.
