The Nigella Sativa, eastern plant from the Mediterranean basin and other areas of the world, is very much used as condiment and medicinal application. The microwave extraction allows to obtain oils in a very short time and with a better quality and yields. The GC and GC/MS analysis of oils shows that are rich in volatile of biosynthesis compounds such as the p-cymene and the thymoquinone which have medicinal properties. The undesirable products caused by the reactions of hydrolysis and the heating effect such as acids, alcohols and oxides are relatively reduced. The monoterpenes and ketones constitute the principal classes of our oils. In addition, the analytical study reveals that the seeds cultivated in the arid regions are rich in thymoquinone which constitutes the principal active component of Nigella Sativa seeds . [less ▲]
