Abstract

The composition of the essential oil of Satureja cuneifolia Ten. cultivated in Konya, Turkey, was investigated by capillary GC-MS. The compounds were characterized by comparison with library searches. Six main compounds were identified. Carvacrol was the dominant component, comprising 59.28% of the essential oil. The oil also contained 15.72% thymol, 9.69% p-cymene, 4.16% gamma-terpinene, 1.70% linalool and 1.25% borneol.
