The constituents of essential oils isolated by hydrodistillation of the overground parts of Origanum majorana and Origanum floribundum from Algeria were examined by GC and GC-MS. A total of thirty eight and thirty seven components were identified accounting for 93.3 % and 88.9 %, respectively, of the oils of O. majorana and O. floribundum. The oil of O. majorana (yield: 1.2 %) contained, as main components, β-caryophyllene (26.0 %), α-terpinolene (14.7 %), γ-terpinene (10.9 %) and sabinene (9.5 %). Major compounds in the volatile oil of O. floribundum (yield: 1.6 %) were γ-terpinene (34.1 %), p-cymene(27.6 %) and carvacrol (9.6 %). [less ▲]
