[en] This work aimed to study the chemical composition of essential oils and floral waters of Cymbopogon citratus (DC.) Stapf (Poaceae) from Senegal. The plants were collected in two different localities, Dakar and Kaolack. The extracts were obtained by steam distillation from both fresh and dried plants and analyses carried out by GC/FID and GC/MS. Oils from Dakar were dominated by geranial which represented 46.0-43.9%, neral 31.8-31.0%, myrcene 10.8-11.7% and geraniol 2.7-4.2% in the fresh and dried plants, respectively. Their floral waters contained mainly 44.6-41.4% geranial, 39.7-35.6% neral and 8.8-13.2% geraniol. The oils from
Kaolack were characterized by geranial which constituted 49.5-44.5%, neral 33.3-31.2%, myrcene 7.2-9.6% and geraniol 4.3-6.1% in the fresh and dried plants, respectively. In their floral waters, it is identified 42.8-33.6% geranial, 38.4-27.6% neral and 12.5-24.5% geraniol. This original study revealed that both oils and floral waters of C. citratus from Senegal are characterized by geranial and neral whose repellent properties against mosquitoes are known.
