Abstract

The chemical composition of the young and mature fruit oils of Alpinia mutica were obtained by hydrodistillation. The oils were analyzed by capillary gas chromatography using flame ionization and mass spectrometric identification. The main constituents found in the oil were sesquiterpenoids (74.4-77.4%), monoterpenoids (17.0-19.6%), long chain hydrocarbon (0.5-0.6%), esters (0.9-1.2%), and ketone (0.5-2.8%). (E,E)-Farnesol was the major constituent (44.3-51.2%).
