Abstract

REIS, Anair A. et al. Preliminary studies on the volatile constitution of Mikania species. Rev. bras. farmacogn. [online]. 2008, vol.18, suppl., pp. 683-685. ISSN 0102-695X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-695X2008000500007.

Volatile oils obtained from the aerial parts of three Mikania species plants were analyzed by GC-MS and NMR. Forty-six terpenes among monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes and diterpenes were identified by this methodology. The analysis classified Mikania hookriana as diterpene producer as the majority Mikania species occurring in Brazil.

Keywords : Mikania hookeriana; Mikania hagei; Mikania jeffrey; Asteraceae; volatile diterpenes; kaurane diterpenoids.
