Abstract:

Jasmine oil has great value for treating severe depression, respiratory tract, for muscle pain and for toning the skin. Three species of jasmine viz., Jasminum sambac, Jasminum auriculatum and Jasminum grandiflorum is cultivated in a commercial scale (Rimando, 2003; Green and Miller, 2009). Among these, the flowers of Jasminum grandiflorum are white with faint, delightfully fragment, and borne in lax, terminal inflorescences. In this study, Jasminum grandiflorum concrete extraction was carried out by solvent extraction with hexane for three genotypes viz., CO-1 pitchi, CO-2 pitchi and White pitchi which is cultivated in South India. The chemical composition of the genotypes was analysed by gas chromatography- mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The results showed that percentage yield of concrete were in the range of 0.29 to 0.34% per cent. The major chemical components detected were Pentane, 3-ethyl-2, 2, 2-dimethyl-; 1-Pentanol; 4-methyl-2-propyl-; Triacontane; Nonacosane; Octacosane; Tetratriacontane and Tetracosane. The result of this study showed that the GC-MS study is selective, rapid and efficient for the identification of volatile components and composition variations.
