Composition and antimalarial activity in vitro of the essential oil of Tetradenia riparia.

Abstract

The essential oil from the leaves and stems of Tetradenia riparia was analysed by GC and GC/MS and 35 components were identified. The main constituents were alpha-terpineol (22.6%), fenchone (13.6%), beta-fenchyl alcohol (10.7%), beta-caryophyllene (7.9%), and perillyl alcohol (6.0%). Moderate antimalarial activities were recorded against two strains of Plasmodium falciparum.
