ABSTRACT


Mutellina purpurea L. belongs to Apiaceae family and is known as Alpin lovage considered as a forage for animals nutrition because of the presence of sufficient concentration of minerals like calcium and potassium. The chemical composition of the essential oil obtained by hydrodistillation in a Clevenger apparatus and aroma of inflorescences of Mutellina purpurea (Poir.) Thell. was analyzed by GC/MS and GC-FID. Sabinene (19.2%), a -pinene (12,6%), (E)-sesquisabinene hydrate (9.0%), myrcene (7.8%), (Z)-sesquisabinene hydrate (7.5%) and a -bisabolol (6.7%) dominated in the essential oil obtained by hydrodistillation. S tatic headspace technique gave sabinene (23.0%), p-cresol (17.4%), a - pinene (17.0%) and myrcene (10.9%) as a major constituents. Antioxidant activity of the oil was evaluated by ABTS assay.
