GRAPHICAL ABSTRACT


ABSTRACT


The essential oil from the aerial parts of Salvia sclarea L., growing wild in Tajikistan, were obtained by hydrodistillation and analyzed by gas chromatography – mass spectrometry. A total of 59 compounds were identified representing 94.2% of total oil composition. Major components of the essential oil were linalyl acetate (39.2%), linalool (12.5%), germacrene D (11.4%), α-terpineol (5.5%), geranyl acetate (3.5%), and (E)-caryophyllene (2.4%). The chemical composition, the large concentrations of linalool and linalyl acetate, and a cluster analysis based on principal components; of Tajik S. sclarea oil reveal it to be comparable to commercial S. sclarea oils.
