DIAZ-CEDILLO, Francisco  e  SERRATO-CRUZ, Miguel A.. Composition of Tagetes parryi A. Gray essential oil. Rev. fitotec. mex [online]. 2011, vol.34, n.2, pp. 145-148. ISSN 0187-7380.

Information about chemical compounds in the essential oil for Mexican species of Tagetes is scarce. The essential oil from aerial plant parts of Tagetes parryi A. Gray (Asteraceae), an endemic plant from the State of San Luis Potosí, México, was obtained by hydrodistillation. By GC-MS analysis seven major compounds were identified in this essential oil, with the following abundance: camphene (96 %), 3, 6, 6-trimethyl-2-norpinanole (91 %), anisole (60 %), 4-isoprophyl-1-methyl-2-cyclohexenole (50 %), cineole (48 %), eugenole (14 %). and α-terpineole (12 %). The second and fourth chemical compounds have not been reported for Tagetes.

Palavras-chave : Tagetes parryi; Asteraceae; camphene; cineole.
