Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To analyze the chemical constituents of the essential oil from Callicarpa kwangtungensis and investigate their antimicrobial activity in vitro.

METHODS:

The essential oil of Callicarpa kwangtungensis were extracted by steam distillaton. The chemical constituents were separated and analyzed by GC-MS. Their relative percentages were calculated with peak area normalization method.

RESULTS:

38 compounds were identified, accounting for 76.01% of the peak area of the total ion-current chromatogram. The essential oil had different antimicrobial activities.

CONCLUSION:

The main constituent of the essential oil is terpenoids (59.25%), and showing different activities against Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Candida albicans.
