Chemical Composition, Antimicrobial and Antiradical Properties of the Essential Oils of Seseli globiferum Fruits
Article (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
The chemical composition and antimicrobial and antiradical activities of the essential oils isolated from unripe and ripe fruits of S. globiferum Vis. (Apiaceae) have been determined. The most abundant constituent in the essential oils of unripe and ripe fruits was sabinene (53.1% and 65.3%), followed by gamma-terpinene (7.7% and 6.6%), alpha-pinene (7.2% and 4.4%), and beta-phellandrene (5.0% and 4.9%). Antibacterial and antifungal properties of these oils were evaluated using a modified microdilution technique. Scavenging activity was determined by the DPPH radical assay. The essential oils exhibited significant antimicrobial, but low antiradical activity.
