Abstract

The composition of the essential oil of Aframomum giganteum was investigated by GC-MS. Forty seven terpenes were identified, the oil contained a high percentage of linalool and linalyl acetate which are mainly responsible for the smell of the A. giganteum stems. Fatty acids, paraffins, n-octanol, n-nonanol and guaiacol were also identified.
